This is just a very quick post whilst we’re traveling around to mention the La Cigale market on Saturdays and Sundays in Auckland. Obviously we didn’t visit New Zealand just to eat bread, but it is always good to find a place that sells good quality produce, especially when it isn’t overpriced because of the ‘artisan’ label.
The Pukeko Bakery had a stall up at the market on Sunday and, I assume, Saturday, and had a range of loaves from baguettes to sourdough. We chose a twice baked rye sourdough and a blueberry danish, and both were excellent.
I’m not actually sure where the bakery itself is as we were on the way out of Auckland when we visited the market, but it is definitely worth keeping an eye out for.
