Description:

come and walk through the historically protected buildings and experience...

come and walk through the historically protected buildings and experience part of the Auckland heritage - grab a coffee from one of the cafes and wander the shops in this small urban village.

After years of development the precinct is just starting to come alive with a mix of artisan workshop stores, galleries and shops left from the old market that used to be on this site.

Restaurants and food outlets make this area popular with the locals who work and live in the immediate area.

I walked over to Victoria Park Market, and found only a few places that were open. LOTS of empty storefronts -- total ghost town! Not worth the trip -- hopefully it will be up and running again someday, but it looked well past its prime...

We had read the tourist information on this market and it sounded fantastic. What we found was terrible. Three, maybe four cafes/restuarants were open - but empty - staff wandering around looking lost. Mostly empty shops. The few shops we did see with stock in them were firmly shut, despite the notices on the doors saying "Open 7 days". We... More

This was a lively place on a sunny summer weekend morning with most of the ground floor units open as well as market stalls. Goods on offer included clothes, crafts, linens, accessories, food, coffee etc with plenty of individual shops and stall holders eager to talk about their craft or wares and a good band playing in the open air...

The market seems newly remodeled not long age, but all I saw were empty units, unlively units, and few restaurants... I was expecting something more interesting.

We were very underwhelmed by this market. On our Monday morning visit we found only two shops open, one of which had 50% off of everything which suggests it won't be there for much longer! There were a handful of eateries and some funky offices, but certainly nothing worth hanging around for.

The Victoria Park Market has changed so much. It's still a great place to go when you are in Auckland city but the atmosphere has changed so much. Pity as we walk around there were also offices so that made less retail and food outlets for us visitors. There's also development going on in the car park so hopefully we... More

Well this place has changed, it used to be a bustling tourist attraction with a fair amount of good shops and some terrible ones. We had not visited for a while but when we heard it had been re-vamped off we went! The grounds sure look good, but the shops are a huge let down, this place is no longer... More
