Yesterday we went to the big (biggest in Auckland??) Sunday market at the old Avondale racetrack. It’s part flea market and part produce / farmers market.
It was super crowded, and as white, English-speaking people we were definitely in the minority. But in ways that are hard to describe it didn’t feel like you’re gonna get your pocket picked or otherwise molested. Nice friendly New Zealand. There was some jostling… there’s a certain type of mostly elderly person who just wants to get their shopping done RIGHT NOW!
We invested in one of those little rolling carts that you use to go to and from the market and bought some veggies and tasty steamed pork buns.
