Eating & Drinking in Niue

Naturally, many tropical fruits grow and depending upon the season most can be bought at the local market or ‘makete’ which runs every Tuesday and Friday morning in central Alofi, right next door to the Niue Tourism Visitor Information Centre. Traditional local foods such as coconut crab ‘uga’, taro ‘talo’, breadfruit, cassava, shellfish are also for sale – but be early!

Niueans have high standards of quality and preparation of food is traditionally very high, and they are extremely proud of this; using it as yet another way to distinguish themselves from neighbouring countries.

The very best range of traditional local food is found at the annual village showdays – each of Niue’s fourteen villages hosts a show-day every year to showcase local cooking, craft, sporting, cultural skills and performances. A large earth oven, or ‘umu’, is prepared, and visitors can sample some rarely found and delicious treats. Try to co-ordinate your visit with one of these show-days, for it will expose you to the full fabric of Niuean life. Our events page will keep you up to date with these.
