We’re back in the groove here at JUK and hope you were all able to enjoy a summer break — one full of good food and a tasty drop! Whether you stayed local, or explored a few regions, you might (hopefully) have come across some of our favourite foodie stores.
After what was quite a year in 2020, we thought our wonderful stockists needed a proper 'cheers-to-you' for their steadfast support they gave us. Aside from supporting JUK, they’ve all got a multitude of other beautiful products to offer, too — from local produce to gelato, fresh blooms to organic wine. They’re all worth a visit! Read on to find out more.
Matakana — Charlie's Gelato (the best in town)
Charlie’s Gelato in Matakana is a great stop-in. It’s an institution and all their gelato, sorbetto and seasonal fresh produce is made and grown locally. Their woodfired pizzas, (available in summer), are worth making the trip in their own right. A delivery of their fresh berries to our team in Morningside in the summer goes down an absolute treat!
Auckland — Speciality Grocery Stores
Looking for a lovely neighbourhood food market? Simply Fresh is one of our favourites and worth a visit to Northcote. They stock locally sourced, speciality food delights (think pickles, deli items and more) plus the hottest seasonal produce. Farro is a wonderful, long-term stockist of ours and they’ve got a tonne of delicious international and local products available (JUK included!). The General in Epsom is another one of our stockists — find coffee and freshly baked goods.
Taupo — The Merchant
The Merchant in Taupo is a great spot for Taupo locals and those passing through to get your hands on speciality food goodies and a delicious drop.
Wellington Delights — Moore Wilsons
For locals and out-of-towners alike, Moore Wilsons is a must visit! Their in-store tastings will have you filling your basket in less than a few minutes.
Nelson — Connings Market
Nelson hosts a great neighbourhood, family owned and operated, boutique grocery store called Connings. They specialise in fresh paddock to plate produce, mainly grown on their home farm. Seasonal salads, baking and sandwiches are also there to be devoured. Exceptional products come out of sunny Nelson and this is the perfect store to find them. Proper Crisps and Little Beauties (think freeze dried boysenberries dipped in white chocolate) are just the start.
So, make sure you make a visit to our wonderful stockists — shopping local is more important than ever now, too! We can’t wait to work with you all again in 2021.
From all the team at JUK.
