1. Visit the weekly Sunday Market
Start your Sunday morning the right way (and the same way that Motueka locals have been starting it for nearly 30 years), hot coffee in hand, browsing the eclectic array of goodies in the Decks Reserve Car Park. A fusion of a farmers, craft and secondhand market, the Motueka Sunday Market is both surprisingly and refreshingly diverse. It’s a true feast for the senses, with the taste of delicious artisan treats, the feel of soft handcrafted fabrics, the smell of freshly baked bread, the sight of extraordinary artworks and the sweet sound of musical entertainment. Nearby, there is a world of treasures just waiting to be unveiled in the lively Motueka town centre, with award winning florists, jewellers, boutique gift stores, restaurants, galleries and artist collectives all making their home along the High Street.
