    Just love this market, whether is a delicious fresh dish to try, gorgeous fresh produce, or relax and listen to music - never fails to please when visiting Wellington

    We stopped here during a food tour. One of the owners provided a tutorial on the making of chocolate starting with the cacao bean and its slimy interior all the way through the process until the finish product comes out.

    This shop, hidden away in the alleys off Eva Street, not too far from the popular Cuba street, makes only organic chocolate. While the offer some concentrated chocolate (think 70% and more) their most popular items incorporate other flavors into the bars. You can stand at their production floor window and watch the product being made. It doesn't get any fresher than that.

    Remember this building when it was the BNZ and I worked at the opposition just down the road. Very much changed from a banking chamber but looks quite up-market and has plenty of food outlets as well as clothing outlets. Had a cup of tea before going upstairs to watch the clock on the hour - opens out and gives a run down on local history instead of chiming - interesting and worth a watch if your first time there. Weren't able to see the wreck downstairs as area was blocked off for some reason - but I'd seen it many years before.

    It was the first time entering since last year. I managed to see the current bi-exhibitions this month. It was amazing with integrating Maori customs and Photography together. Thus, there is psychology involved with tactile art. Moreover, the energy was intense and touch me emotionally. There is an old saying 'picture tells a thousand words.'

    We popped in on our way to another gallery, this wasn’t the main reason for being in the city.

    We love and collect art so we did enjoy the visit, wasn’t too much to look at but if you read everything word for word maybe you would spend 30 minutes here.

    I see the exhibitions do change every few months so you may see different artists depending on when you go.

    If you are there and love art, pop in. The building that houses the gallery is art in itself.

    When we were there the gallery was devoted to works competing for an up and coming prize. As always with modern art, there will be some you like and some you don't. The best ones for me were actually amongst the kids exhibition. Eva and Rosa's Peace Pizza was as good as any of the competition works.
    Free entry - why not take a look?

    Only a handful of shops so we went through in about 30 mins, depends what you are looking for but an overly good selection and some prices aren’t really discounted. Definitely don’t make a special trip to visit

    Once went to a Hallensteins shop at Johnsonville Mall. After a couple minutes browsing around, I noticed this guy had been following me and watching my every move since I entered the shop. That's when I realised he was the security guard but I wondered why he chose to follow/watch me of all the people in the shop. Was it because of the colour of my skin?

    What a beautiful gallery. The glass work was fantastic and if I could would have walked out being broke. The ladies working were really friendly and helpful too.

    It is a small market just opens on Saturday morning. you should go there early or most things would be sold out already. You can find some local food products such as honey, veggies, fruits and so on.
    As other market, bring your own bags or containers for the items.

    Reserve 15-20 minutes for the market would be pretty enough. Easy to walk from the Wellington train station or bus stop. you could visit the Beehive, parliament and church nearby together.

    Great indoor market with lots of stalls selling local products, arts, crafts, food, clothing... coffee! Free entry and some really great stuff for sale. Only open Sundays at the moment.

    At the Southern end of Cuba Street, Wellington's most famous street, this art gallery specialises in New Zealand art. Most works are original oil paintings and water colours; there are also limited edition prints, drawings and also some inexpensive smaller prints and postcards.
    There are changing featured artist exhibitions, but always lots of different artists' works to view.
    Some artists are world famous and others are of the emerging artist category. A lot of the art is of Wellington but not strictly so. The gallery is tiny and the walls are fully utilised; this is not one of those two artworks per wall type galleries.

    I had an excellent meeting with Zamm. She identified the challenges I'm currently going through and provided great guidance moving forward which made a lot of sense to me.
