Gourmet Best On Sundays

Two of the country’s most well known weekend farmers’ markets, Central Otago Farmers’ Market and Auckland’s La Cigale, are represented in a Jaunted article. “On Sundays from 9:00 a.m. — 1:00 p.m. from October-February, you’ll find the restored historic precinct of the 19th-century gold rush town of Cromwell, its streets bustling with local farmers and artisan producers peddling gourmet products all sourced and made in the South Island.” Writer Eric Rosen sampled Earlise cherries, jams and syrups at Wild Thyme Gourmet and Gibbston Valley Cheese. When at La Cigale, Rosen tried “freshly butchered cuts of meat, smoked salmon and fresh fish and seafood, macadamia nuts and hand-rolled pasta.” “Exuberant” La Cigale is open from 8:00 a.m. — 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays and 9:00 a.m. — 1:30 p.m. Sundays.
