Farmers Market @ Mount Maunganui

Happy Easter day! It was Easter Day when we went to Mount Maunganui this time. We heard that there will have a Farmers Market on that day, so we visited Mount Maunganui again. It was so crowded early in the morning and most of the booths were selling fresh vegetable, fruits, plants, meats, honey, cheese and food. Besides Farmers Market, there were some free performances and children games can be found at there. “Photos speaks louder than words”, let’s enjoy the photos we captured on that day as it's quite fun:P

A trip to Mount Maunganui

While working in Te Puke, normally there will have 1 or 2 off days for us to rest; this is always the best time for us to have a one-day-trip to some nearby towns.  As told by our friends we known from kiwi fruit packhouse, Mount Maunganui is a town in Bay of Plenty that worth to pay a visit.

We went to Mount Maunganui for more than once as there are plenty of places we can visit at there, such as the beaches, the mount, and the shops around the town.

Besides the beaches and mount, there is a Chinese restaurant nearby Countdown and Warehouse named China Town Restaurant & Take Aways.  Many of our friends recommended us to try on the lunch or dinner buffet as the food is delicious and worth for the price. Yeah, the food is yummy and we enjoyed our lunch pretty much at there.

Dessert time

Variety of food choices and eat as much as you can!



We were looking for a vinery where we can take some photos with the grapes, but we could not find one of it and finally found this Mills Reef winey and restaurant.  You can enjoy your meal at the restaurant or buy your favourite wine at the wine shop.
