We loved the atmosphere at the Farmers Market held on Saturdays in the Village.
Foodies will love it there's something for everyone and lots of unique and handmade/homemade wares and foods.
Parking is a nightmare however...I recommend you go early and wear comfortable shoes as...More
Visited on a Weekend when the Market was in full swing. Strolled around the small but modern shopping area adjacent to the Market area and had coffee in the Cafe right alongside.Altogether a most pleasant day and would thoroughly recommend.
This is a quaint set of shops surrounding a car park. At one end is a lovely vista of a stream and garden. There are park benches where you can sit and take a rest from shopping or eat something from the local cafe/bakery.

No you wont be able to. I was in Matakana and Goat Island Christmas 2017. Even the larger grocer stores in Auckland are not open on Xmas Day so make sure you are well and truly stocked for both the 25th and 26th Dec.
If you are staying in NZ longer also keep this in mind for both the 1st and 2nd Jan.
Some petrol stations are open and MacDonalds was open in Warkworth.
Have a great time. Its truly a beautiful place. And Goat Island is packed on Christmas day in case your thinking of visiting. Get there early.
