Hi winsome,

Are you happy to shop at a convenience store - like there are a couple in/around Downtown shopping centre on corner of Albert and Customs St, or did you want to hop over to New World supermarket at Victoria Park (take Link Bus), or walk along to the Foodtown supermarket located behind Britomart, near eastern end of Customs Street/Quay St in downtown city area?

Hi there

Since you will be going to Victoria Park Market, & Glengarrys for wine already, (as per your previous post) I would recommend going to New World, which is a big supermarket about another 100m further from Vic park market.

New World offers a great range of produce, excellent deli & fresh food counters + also the best supermarket range of wine.

Once you have bought all this food & wine, I think you might be well advised to get a taxi on the way back !!!

Walk will take about 15/20 minutes. Walk up Albert Street until you reach Victoria Street intersection - further up is Skytower. Continue down Victoria St West ( & past Victoria Park which is on opposite side of road, & the interior Victoria markets to your left) until you enter College Hill Road (motorway flyover passes over top of this road). New World supermarket is situated on the left side corner before you start climbing up College Hill to Ponsonby. The Link bus will take you back to city also. Happy retail therapy.
