Taupō markets & specialty food

With boutique merchants and charming markets found throughout the Taupō region, you won’t need to look far to find unique culinary treats to delight your inner foodie.

Take the opportunity to interact with local artisans and craftspeople at the Market Central Taupō on Sundays, rain or shine. Meander through the diverse offerings at the markets of food trucks, artesian stalls and local produce stands while listening to live local music and enjoying the lake views.

Decadent Argentinian empanadas, second-to-none Korean fried chicken, fresh vegan bowls, rich pastries and locally roasted coffee will fill your senses. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Snack on your favourite foods as you wander through the beautiful local crafts and handmade products from body butter and candles to mosaic art pieces to handwoven clothing.

This is the best way to spend your weekend mornings. You’ll be sure to find something to take a piece of Taupō home with you.

Taupō town has a selection of gourmet food merchants and speciality liquor boutiques where you can select from an extensive range of delicious local and imported products. One of Taupō’s largest wine and gourmet food stores is The Merchant. From olives, handmade pasta & sauces, and gourmet cheeses to a range of boutique spirits and local beers and wines, their in-house experts will help you find your new favourite!
