We headed 2 hours north to Matakana, famous for its Saturday Farmers Market which I absolutely adore since my days of living in Auckland.

It’s hands down one of my favourite nostalgic places of New Zealand. A trip to Matakana will not be complete without some blueberry waffles to indulge in, of course.
