One of my favorite things to do while traveling is finding farmer's markets, flea markets, art shows and other street fair activities. It's a fun way to learn about the local culture, interact with people and generally have a good time people watching.
This is Waiheke Island, which sits twenty or so kilometers miles away from Auckland. The ferries from the main island will often teem with daytrippers getting away from the city life, and enjoying things like Waiheke's shopping, beaches and the very popular Ostend Market, where they say you can find "everything under the sun" -- kind of a fun pun considering a good portion of the show is outdoors.
Which reminds me it's Thursday, which means our OWN local farmer's market runs this evening.
It's what's for dinner....
