Went to Britomart's instead of Parnell in view of time. Website has full listing stores for both outlets. Very small section in Britomart but good experience and taste of the weekend market. Would love to visit Parnell's next time.

We take bus there and take about 25 mins to walk back to CBD. It's good to have a walk if weather is fine.
