The Merchant of Taupo

Great taste sensations

The Merchant of Taupo Off the main route through Taupo in Spa Road you’ll find The Merchant of Taupo, a store that offer s a fantastic selection of gourmet foods, both local and imported, and wines.

This store is a veritable “who’s who” of delicious artisan food producers, probably some you know and other that you can take great delight in discovering. There’s simply everything from olives, oils, syrups, sauces, fresh fish, salmon, New Zealand and European cheese, preserves, relishes, pasta, rice, flour, desserts dressings, kitchenware and the gift boxes are legendary. The fresh fish truck rolls in regularly with fresh goodies such as West Coast whitebait. Tastings abound, keep your eyes and ears open for these.

There’s plenty of parking and the atmosphere in the store is warm and inviting. The Merchant has a “Kitchen” where you can bring your friends and enjoy demonstrations of food and cookware, lots of good fun and hands on activity. There’s always a fresh range of recipes, cooking tips, tricks, ideas and suggestions.

You can buy The Merchant’s products online (excepting the fresh produce), but the store is just so much fun.
