Voted Auckland’s Best Food Market by Metro Magazine for the last 8 years, La Cigale French Market is held every Saturday from 8am to 1.30pm and Sunday from 9am to 1.30pm. Our Market is inspired by the wonderful food markets found in France.
You’ll find an amazing selection of top quality products from both New Zealand artisan producers and growers and from overseas. Shop for your weekly needs. You can buy fresh produce in abundance, fresh breads and pastries hot from our oven, French cheeses, export quality meats, smoked Akaroa salmon, healthy salads, flowers and orchids, Italian pasta, salamis and sausages, award winning Italian style cheeses, extra virgin olive oils, manuka honey, pâtés and terrines, jams and chutneys and lots more. And, as in any French Market, the aromas of roasting chickens in the rotisserie and paella cooking will waft through the air.
When you’ve finished your shopping you can sit at one of long communal tables and enjoy a coffee with something delicious from one of counters – your eyes will be much bigger than your stomach!! For something savoury have one of our famous Croque Monsieurs. If it’s sweet you’re after the choice is also endless – enjoy a hot croissant or pain au chocolat, croissant aux amandes – we could go on!!
