“We are so spoilt in Marlborough when it comes to great food. We’ve got crayfish from the east coast and salmon, oysters and mussels grown in the Marlborough Sounds."

My insider guide to Marlborough

Local markets

Marlborough’s high sunshine hours and unspoiled environment nurture produce with the finest flavour.

To cook up your own delights or to sample a taste, visit one of the many Marlborough markets to try locally-grown foods such as saffron, pinenuts, hazel nuts, honey, olives, wild game, chocolates, preserves, shallots, garlic and sea salt.

Buying direct from local growers and producers in a lovely market setting at New Zealand’s original Farmers’ Market. Cheese, bread, plants, fruit, vegies and more… it’s a foodie’s delight.
