Container Mall – Not Long Left

There’s only a few week’s left to enjoy the container mall (previously the ReStart Mall) in the city – it will be disassembled to make way for the construction of the Riverside Farmers Market.

Visiting the containers and grabbing a bite to eat from one of the food caravans has been a fairly regular occurrence for me.  And I will miss it. But all good things come to an end – and I’m looking forward to seeing Riverside Farmers Market take shape here (it’s expected to be completed late this year). According to this Press article:

Riverside Market, expected to be completed by November, will house an indoor daily farmers market, an international food hall, eating and drinking places, fashion shops and offices.

  1. Great pity – the Restart Container Mall was a great asset to Christchurch and I’d like it to have stayed as a permanent feature. It was a great place to people watch, have a coffee or snack, and the little shops were fun and interesting.
