Aotearoa New Zealand’s northernmost region boasts a mild subtropical climate where the land is rich and fertile and is wrapped in the most stunning and contrasting coastlines.
Thanks to a thriving market scene, the ‘gate to plate’ philosophy is not just for the restaurants and chefs either. You will find an abundance of fresh produce including tropical fruit, olives, citrus, honey, and nuts. Beautifully fresh kaimoana (seafood) is often on offer, and at the hand of our many passionate artisans, you can indulge in award-winning cheese, chilli sauce, gourmet preserves, and much more.
With produce markets and roadside stalls in almost every corner of the region, you won’t have to go far to find these delicious treasures!
