MATAKANA VILLAGE IS JUST AN EASY 45 MINUTE DRIVE NORTH FROM AUCKLAND CITY. The majority of the trip is on the northern motorway, then a short journey on state highway 1 through picturesque countryside until you turn off at Warkworth and enter the Matakana Wine Region
THE SATURDAY MATAKANA FARMERS’ MARKET is a 'must visit' destination. A showcase of artisans, growers and farmers in the Matakana region who have a passion for what they do and produce. Choose from luscious fresh produce like fruit, vegetables, delicious artisan baking, Italian sausages, organic chocolate, flowers, fine wines, olive oil and the all important freshly brewed morning coffee with locally roasted beans; all with a live musical accompaniment. Nestled on the banks of the picturesque Matakana River, the Farmers’ Market is a unique experience everyone loves.
