Christmas shopping in Auckland?

lacontessa | Mar 27, 201404:07 AM     6

Good morning. My husband and I will be visiting Auckland for the first time with another couple for Christmas. We will be arriving early on December 24 and leaving on December 27, and will be visiting Tiriti Matangi on the 26th (so will need picnic supplies). We will be staying at the Quality Alexander Inn which is near Newmarket, and will have a car.

Do you have any suggestions for where would be good to pick up ingredients for Christmas breakfast/lunch/dinner as well as picnic supplies on December 24? I am gluten-free and my husband has to avoid dairy so that makes it a little more challenging. We would prefer to pick up things that won’t require a whole lot of preparation, but, will have access to a kitchen with an oven.

Suggestions that we have received so far include:

Farro Fresh
34 Westmoreland St W, Grey Lynn, Auckland 1021

Jack Lum and Co Fruit Shop
3 Clonbern Rd, Remuera, Auckland

New World at Victoria Park, in Ponsonby

Nosh at Greenlane or Ponsonby Road

Sabato in Newmarket

Thanks!
