Delicacies abound in Christchurch, surrounded as it is by market gardens and vineyards which flourish on its endless, flat and fertile plains. Christchurch’s inner-city lanes are jam-packed with bars, restaurants, and eateries, whose chefs are spoiled for choice, taking their pick from freshest locally-grown fruit and vegetables, succulent locally raised spring lamb, Canterbury salmon and venison, and a range of bounty from the sea.

But to truly get a taste of all that is on offer jump in your Christchurch campervan hire and head to the Canterbury Farmers’ Market, held every Wednesday evening and Saturday morning on the grounds at Riccarton House, where locally-produced handmade cheeses, organic eggs, artisan breads, olive oils, dips, spreads, preserves, wine and a range of sweet treats are all up for grabs.

Foodies also make tracks for the weekend market held in the courtyard of the centrally located Christchurch Arts Centre, another hub for niche gourmet fare boasting, among other things, its very own fudge factory and cupcake bake house. You'll load up your Christrchurch Rental Campervan with enough great for a serious road trip!

Others head for the historic Curator’s House Restaurant set in the Botanic Gardens of Hagley Park, where the chef gathers fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits daily from a garden onsite and runs the kitchen using the principles of environmental sustainability.
