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 caf√©s.

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.
