Showcasing the very best of local produce

Scarecrow is one of the jewels in the city's crown for food lovers.

Scarecrow is an ‘urban farmers market’ and gourmet cafe showcasing over 120 of Auckland’s regional artisan producers. We're happy to announce that one of our favourite eateries is back home in its sunny corner next to Albert Park.

Designed by award winning architectural designer, Peter Were, the now spacious, urban oasis combines the feel of a European bistro and a distinct local farmers market. 

Inside is a carefully curated selection of local food, boutique wine and beer, beverages, chocolates, flowers and gifts - a place people can relax in a quietly sophisticated urban space while still being in touch with the natural environment, with Albert Park on the doorstep.

Steered by owners Alison and Paul Dyson together with head chef, Ben Barton, Scarecrow aspires to bring food enthusiasts and artisans together to celebrate our local producers. For Scarecrow, great food isn’t just about the ingredients; it’s about where it comes from, who makes it, how it makes it way to the plate, and finally, how it’s enjoyed. Scarecrow stewards this process every step of the way.
