La Cicale market_1280_for_WebEvery Saturday and Sunday, La Cicale, a French bakery and cooking supply store, hosts an outdoor market featuring fresh produce and local food producers.  We stopped by to see what was happening at the market that was ranked Aucklands best for the past several years.

Found in Auckland: Daiso!
