During the cooler months, the temperature can drop quickly so bring a jacket or another layer of clothing.
Most stallholders allow payment by EFTPOS/debit cards.
If you prefer to use cash, an ATM is located at the corner of Pukuata and Tūtānekai streets near the centre of the market.
On-street parking in the city is free from 5pm. There's plenty of parking around the market.
