PACHAMAMA Latin Market

In 2020, we launched "Mercadito Solidario" (solidarity market) to help our fellow Latinos in need. The events were very sucessful and a lot of fun. As a result, we decided to run a regular Pachamama Latin market in our carpark to bring latino flavours and vibes to the Northshore.


Every third sunday of the month our Latino Market at Pachamama will bring  a variety of Latino foods, music, performances, arts & crafts.

Where? Carpark Tienda Pachamama 179A Archers Rd, Auckland, from 11am to 4pm.  All welcome!

Next Markets are on:

Sunday 21 August 2022 from 11am until 4pm

Sunday 18 September 2022 from 11am until 4pm


It's not a secret that we love yerba mate! We want to share our passion for all things yerba mate. We're so excited to bring our new venture to fruition: Experience Yerba Mate Cafe, New Zealand's first yerba mate cafe.


Yerba mate (pronounced sher- ba ma-te) is a caffeinated herbal tea popular in South America and quickly increasing in populatiry around the globe. Yerba mate was considered a "gift of the Gods" by South American natives. Scientific studies have shown it to have many health benefits, including being rich in antioxidants, vitamins and increasing energy and physical pefrormance.
