Go where the chefs and foodies shop: Moore Wilson is part wholesaler, part specialty grocery and part variety store selling home goods and toys. The fresh market carries an astonishing variety of New Zealand and imported produce, meat and fish, and there are also baked goods, cheese and artisanal goodies. Try to snag a bottle of cult-favorite Lewis Road Creamery chocolate milk—so popular that supermarkets can't keep it on the shelves—and grab a snack from one of the food trucks outside. Bring cash, as only NZ credit cards are accepted.
