Ponsonby Produce Market

PONSONBY CENTRAL launched the next stage of their retail concept with the opening of the Ponsonby Produce Market, a gourmet mix of fresh produce, food, wine and cafes.
The back building is now complete, with Foxtrot Parlour, The Dairy, Little Bread & Butter, Wine Direct, Ceres Fresh Market, Jimmy The Fish, Neat Meat, The Goods Store and Eighthirty Coffee are all onboard. Opening day brought in the punters, some refugees from being turned away from Ponsonby Central's hotspot, The Blue Breeze Inn.

A regular feature will be cooking demonstrations by Sri Lankan chef Kit Perara, who has been hosting his famous Chef For A Night Dinners at the Fisher & Paykel Kitchen at the Ponsonby Produce Market. Today, he enchanted his audience with cooking Monfish Coconut Curry and had four young ones who helped with making the roti with curry leaves. Kit Perera knows his stuff and had the audience in the palm of his hand. As former Cricket Master at Christ College, he knows how to handle the youngsters, especially poor Jackson who dropped his finished roti. "No harm done, the 2-second rule applies" as the roti was swiftly picked off the floor.
