Grocery shops


If you’re wanting to skip the supermarket, there are plenty of alternative grocery shops dotted around the city centre. For beautiful artisan products, fresh produce, and much more, HomelandJones the Grocer and Scarecrow will be your go to’s. If you like to shop at Japan-style convenience stories, Lawson Station, Wah Lee Co. or Japan Mart will be worth a visit. 


Convenience stores


If you're looking for something convenient and quick, there are plenty of convenience stores to grab some pantry staples or tasty snacks. Also, be sure to check out Victoria St Lotto & Newsagents' fantastic range of magazines, arguably the best in the city centre!


Food packages


For a carefully curated selection of delicious food items, be sure to try one of Amano’s The Best of Amano Grocer boxes, a Scarecrow picnic box or one of Homeland’s hamper selections.


Ready-made and cook at home meals


After a long day, preparing dinner can sometimes feel like an arduous task.. everyone’s been there! So, whether you’re looking to fill your freezer or pick up a quick dinner on your way home, you’ve got plenty of options in the city. You can dine on Savor Group's DIY, cook at home kits, which include a range of options such as Beef Ragu, Scampi Chitarra or, Lobster Roll Kits. We also think Homeland's three-course menu sounds amazing! If you'd like a ready to eat meal, try something from Roti Bros pies, Amano or Scarecrow.  




If your shopping list includes bread, you won’t regret stopping in at one of the city centre’s bakeries for a fresh loaf. How does a kumara sourdough or Brioche loaf sound? Top it off and treat yourself to a pastry while you’re there!


Wine, beer and spirits


If you're looking to pick up some wine or spirits, be sure to visit the expert store, Cahn's Wine & Spirits. They have an unrivalled range of local and international wines and spirits. If you're a beer lover, Brothers Beer & Juke Joint is a great place to pick up some beer to take home and enjoy later. 


Also, be sure to stop by...


Sanford and Sons and Billy Pot at the Auckland Fish Market have a great selection to choose from if you'd like to add fresh seafood to your grocery haul. Not far from the Fish Market is Whitestone Cheese Bar, where you can purchase hand-cut cheese to take home and enjoy!

You can also tick off your grocery at the Britomart Saturday Markets, where you'll find a great lineup of fresh produce, honey, cheese and more!
