Riccarton House and Farmers Market
Riccarton House and home of the Christchurch Farmers Market that is open each Saturday.
It’s great to see how Christchurch is regaining its status as a desirable place to live and with dining out going from strength to strength. Canterbury‘s wine region is building its own distinct reputation with Pet Nat and Natural wines finding a loyal following. Here is some photos of recent meals, and food things to do in Canterbury.
It you are in Christchurch on a Saturday morning, its well worth the time to visit the Christchurch Farmers Market at the historic Riccarton House located in Riccarton Bush which holds important native trees from the pre-colonial era.
