Description: Matakana Village and Matakana Farmers Market, one hour from Auckland...
Matakana Village and Matakana Farmers Market, one hour from Auckland. Close enough to visit, far enough to stay. On Saturday the vibrant farmers market is a focal point for the community and its growers to meet. Produce fills the stalls - fruit and vegetables, delicious home-baking and Italian-style sausages, divine organic chocolate, fine wines and boutique olive oils, locally-brewed beer, cafes and live music. Matakana is a unique mix. Rainbow Valley Farm is a world-famous model for permaculture. You'll find a riverside gallery next to the new cinemas, the best in contemporary literature just over the road from teahouse or cafe.

Wonderful shops, Piece gallery is beautiful, the theatres are always worth a visit and the Love Shack makes the best coffee with the most fun barista in the area. Well worth a visit.

Thoroughly enjoy the market and the market atmosphere. Also it's great wandering the various nik-nak shops in the village. Lunch - Matakana Village Brasserie; great ambience, great food and pleasant and courteous staff. What more could you want for a a weekend excursion? We've been more than once and will be back again.

A special place! The movie theatres are amazing and Saturday market has very different foods on sale. Being near to Omaha is also a plus.

This is a quaint village. Plenty of places to dine and a movie theatre opened about three years ago. For pots and other ceramic wares, see Morris and James onthe outskirts of town.
