Avoid the rains at Kirkcaldie and Stains
The gourmet food department at Kirkcaldie and Stains in Wellingtons inner city is seriously good. Many of the products are from the Wellington region, or New Zealand, including Lot Eight, Wild Country and Lowry Peaks.
The range covers most pantry items: organic and gluten-free pastas, olive oils, infused oils, vinegars and spices and rubs. The chocolates are created by New Zealand’s leading chocolatiers, and you’ll also find some top international brands. They’ve a huge Pick ‘n’ Mix of traditional English sweets, and the only Jelly Belly Dispenser in the country. In teas, they stock NZ’s Tea Total and Stir Tea, and Lezzo, a lovely Turkish Tea (try the Apple!).
There’s a large selection of coffee, freshly-ground from Wellington or Auckland.
Also at the Harbour City Centre you’ll find a fromagerie, trading in cheeses from home, as well as France, Italy, Australia and Spain. The fromagerie contains all your cheese-y accompaniments like crackers, breads, biscuits, antipasto, cured meats, pickles and pates, chutneys and other condiments.
