Traveling between Taupo and Wellington on a Friday? Visit Feilding

If you're planning on traveling between Taupo and Wellington on a Friday, ensure you pop by Feilding for some gourmet treats and a dose of Kiwi culture.

Friday is the day to visit because it's the day that farmers from the surrounding hinterland come to town and do their weekly shop, including buying and selling of stock at the Saleyards.

From this, the wider Region's only Farmers' Market has developed, which sells seasonal produce, organic meats and bread, barista-made coffee and many gourmet treats.

The atmosphere is lively, making it the best day of the week to visit. As a visitor to the town, the best way to experience 'Feilding on a Friday' is to book ahead and go on a guided tour of Feilding Saleyards, followed by a bite to eat at one of the cafes or boutique cinema, a visit to Feilding Farmers' Market and a stroll around the CBD to see Eric Brew's Public Art.
