Cambridge is at the centre of one of New Zealand's most productive food growing regions.
As a result, you'll find it easy to buy fresh quality produce either at shops in the town or directly from the growers, many of whom have roadside outlets.
Main crops in the Waikato include kiwifruit, blueberries, strawberries, apples, melons, nectarines, peaches, pears, asparagus and onions.
Visitors to Cambridge will see fields of asparagus, blueberries and strawberries, in particular, with a number of well-established producers based close to town.
Cambridge asparagus includes white and purple varieties, as well as organically-grown. In summer, you can buy freshly-picked berries straight from the farms or from mobile vendors who are quick to sell excess produce.
You can also buy fresh produce at Cambridge's three supermarkets and at the local Farmers' Market.
