Supermarket in Takaka?

If yes, is it Fresh Choice, Countdown etc. If not where would be the closest. We're staying in Tata beach next month.

Thanks.

Takaka Fresh choice is a very good superrmarket with wide range of everything. As good as our local supermarket in Nelson.

Its an excellent supermarket and Takaka boasts many cafes as well. Plus two liqour shops (in addition to wine/beer at supermarket). I will be arriving this weekend for a week.

Hi Dev, welcome to the neighbourhood :)

You will find our temps a bit cooler than at home!

Thanks everyone. Looking forward our little holiday by the beach. Have stayed at Little Kaiteriteri the last few years but have decided to mix things up a little and try Tata this time :-)

Not sure about the Takaka hill though - what's it like these days?? I suffer from motion sickness so guess I will be getting out the medication!! Is it about an hour from Motueka to Takaka?

I am sure the Takaka Hill (anywhere else it would called a mountain) won't have changed.

Slowly does it. Stop for a break at the view spots, walk on the top. Appreciating how beautiful it is might (or might not) calm the motion sickness.

Hi WLnz, nice to be back. Missed not coming last year (first time in nine summers). In Wton tonight. After mid-high 30's temps its cold (and wet to boot). Thank goodness for the new hoody. I am hoping its a bit warmer in Takaka next week. Clothing isn't high on the priority list where I am headed.

A cold dairy product sooths car sickness - so cold yoghurt or an icecream will help an unsettled tummy - they really need an icecream parlour at the top!

Dev - best watch for sunburn ;)
