The Riverside Market is a bustling hub of local artisans, tucked away in a cavernous building near the Avon River.
The entrance is a little laneway off Cashel Street, lined with local gems like the “The Butcher’s Pie Shop”. Walk through the sliding doors to the market, and it’s like you’ve arrived in the city’s hidden temple of food. And worship takes place seven days a week.
There are dozens of enticing stalls – from the Bohemian Bakery, Donut Dispensary, Kombucha Girls, Empire Chicken, Cluck Cluck Slurp, The Kathmandu Momo House and the social media sensation that is Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar.
The brilliant thing about the market is that local artisans can rent a single shelf – so even those just starting out can show off their goods.
