Us Aucklanders are suckers for a good market. The flaky pastries, fresh-as-can-be produce and cheery vibes are enough to put a smile on anyone’s dial. La Cigale Market in Parnell has been doing exactly that for almost 20 years and now, the beloved French market is bringing the love to Britomart!
From Saturday 12th November, Takutai Square will be transformed into a Parisian paradise with more than twenty stalls offering local and artisanal goodies galore. We’re talking cheese, cured meats, crusty bread and other made-with-love treats to take home and enjoy. If you can’t wait, there will also be plenty of crepes, fresh juices and piping hot coffee to get amongst.
The market is set to operate all year, with both La Cigale favourites and new stallholders, hand picked and taste-tested by La Cigale’s founders. You’ll find nut butters, organic teas, chocolatiers, a season fruit jelly maker and an Acai berry grower—and that’s just scratching the surface. Whether you’re a La Cigale loyalist or keen to get amongst the market buzz this summer, then La Cigale’s new Britomart location is the ticket!
