There is nothing worth seeing at this market. When I arrived I was expecting to see an historic market with many small shops and restaurants reflecting the past. What I saw were a few up scale shops. Most of the stores are empty, there were a few serving coffee, but that was about it. Was very disappointed. Unless you are interested in seeing the exterior of the building, going back to the early 1900's, don't waste your time visiting this attraction.
In the shadows of the Sky Tower, Auckland’s Victoria Park Market is the city’s rather fittingly lame attempt at a downtown market. I would be hard pressed to recommend a visit for anything other than last-minute trinkets and souvenirs.
The Victoria Park Market didn't have much worth checking out. There are a few booths selling souvenirs such as t-shirts and Maori necklaces. There are also clothing, shoes, crafts booths and a food court.
this is a small market near the Skycity Hotel...it is characterized by the tall chimney you would see even before reaching it. we went there at christmas time so there was this little santa claus attempting to climb the chimney. there are quite a number of shops inside. it is quite a good place to get your souvenirs and the shopkeepers are all friendly and willing to help. :D
Even if you do not like shopping, you might want to visit this Victoria Market. The Market has many little souvenir shops as well as nice cafes/small restaurants. It's nice just to walk around and have a nice stop in one of the cafes.
Located across Victoria Park, it is just an easy walk from downtown Auckland.
Victoria Park Market bustles with about 80 retail-shops with cafes, crafts and clothes. This market is targeted to tourists.
Victoria Park Market is on the site of an old rubbish destructor built in 1905. There are plenty of the shops at the market both of the tourist, craft and artwork type as well as shoe shops, homemade candy etc. There are 3 licensed restaurants, a food court and small 'nibble' cafes. The shopping centre overlooks Victoria Park and is within reasonable walking distance from the city centre. On a ramp leading to an upper level there is a 'small' The Celebrity 'Walk of Fame'. On the weekends there is live entertainment.
Some of the goods here are not sold anywhere else which makes shopping here quite unique.
Open 7 days a week from 9am to 6 pm.
there is an amazing array of products for sale - many not available in other parts of New Zealand. Eat at licensed restaurants, or visit the international food court that offers delicacies from around the world, accompanied by live entertainment. Open 7 days a week, 9am - 6pm.
A good place to go to see many New Zealand handcraft shops under the one roof (amongst other small shops)
