There’s something about Matakana Village… Perhaps it’s the fresh country air, the artisanal food and award-winning wine, or the stylish boutiques and galleries you simply won’t find in the city. Whether you’re catching up with friends in one of our...more

We spent a morning here on our way back from the Bay of Islands. It was too short, its a charming village and we have committed to coming back on a weekend when it has farmers markets based on our discussions with the locals.
Excellent selection of locally grown & produced produce & products e.g fruit & veges, cheeses, breads, plants. Great community atmosphere. Selection of cafes. Suggest parking down a side street as traffic & parking on main thoroughfare can be congested.
This is a quaint little village with boutique style shops and a lovely boutique cinema. Food places are excellent for lunch, dinner or refreshement. Exceedingly busy on Saturdays because of markets so expect delays. Well worth a meander around this heavenly place.
Excellent Saturday market with food stalls. The dumpling and rice paper roll stalls are worth trying. Plenty of fresh produce to buy direct from farmers. Take some cooler bags to store your produce. Make sure you check out the chocolate shop in the village square...More

A good permanent set up for the Saturday farmers...More

No you wont be able to. I was in Matakana and Goat Island Christmas 2017. Even the larger grocer stores in Auckland are not open on Xmas Day so make sure you are well and truly stocked for both the 25th and 26th Dec.
If you are staying in NZ longer also keep this in mind for both the 1st and 2nd Jan.
Some petrol stations are open and MacDonalds was open in Warkworth.
Have a great time. Its truly a beautiful place. And Goat Island is packed on Christmas day in case your thinking of visiting. Get there early.
