Food and Drink

The Coromandel produces some great food and drink, the landscape is dotted with small farms and orchards – and there are lots of ways to sample it!

Roadside stalls with 'honesty boxes' are a great way to find seasonal fruit and vegetables and free-range eggs. There are regular local produce markets, with breads, cakes, local cheeses, meat, nuts, olives and juices. The Coromandel produces nearly a quarter of New Zealand's mussels and oysters. And there are vineyards and local breweries nearby as well as some fabulous cafés and restaurants, cheese farms and more.
