The 'place' to shop is the High Street precinct in the central city. A visitor's itinerary
should include Karen Walker, Zambesi, Adrian Winkelmann and World - for clothing items
that fall into the 'very original' category. The city fringe suburbs of Newmarket and Parnell
are other places to hunt for fashion, footwear and designer homewares.
A more casual approach to retail therapy can be found at Victoria Park Market, which is
bustling with indoor shops and outdoor barrows crammed full of New Zealand arts and crafts.
It's a great place to discover hidden treasure. On Saturday morning the Otara market offers
a taste of Pacific Island lifestyle, while a visit to Avondale Market is the thing to do
on a Sunday.
Dressmart in Onehunga offers all the advantages of a big city mall but with prices inspired
by an open air market.
