Lyttelton is a port side town at the north-western end of Banks Peninsula. Only 15 minutes (by car) from Christchurch, it’s the perfect spot for a day trip. Every Saturday, the historic town plays host to a farmers market attracting various local vendors, musicians and entertainers. Offering resplendent views of the Lyttelton Harbour, London Street is also dotted with quaint storefronts and gorgeous cafés.
After settling in for a warm beverage at Lyttelton Coffee Co., my friend Lieselot and I leisurely strolled through the market and nearby shops, sampling breads, cheeses, and olives. The non-profit market is run entirely by hardworking volunteers and the market focuses on community and local trading.
