The best weekends in Auckland always involve a trip to Parnell’s dearly beloved La Cigale French Market. The French style farmers’ market will have you feeling as if you’ve been magically transported to Paris as you wander between the stalls showcasing artisan products and fresh produce. Make sure you come hungry because there’s plenty of mouth-watering food on offer. The hardest part is deciding whether you want a croissant, crêpe or croque-monsieur for breakfast—have them all, we say! Come back during the week and check out La Cigale’s bistro for a meal with rustic French flair, open Wednesday through Friday for dinner. Bon appétit!
