Food on Atiu

There are three main shops on Atiu, and two bakers make bread weekdays and Sunday. ADC/ANZ Store (closed Sunday), in Areora village, may have some fresh produce (cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, papaya).

Kura Malcolm runs the Center Store (closed Sunday), just beyond the CICC church, which dispenses liquor and cold drinks, as well as basic foodstuffs.

Jumbo Bakery nearly opposite Centre Store sells buns and donuts between 0530 and 0700 Monday to Saturday. Any surplus from the early morning bake is then available in the main stores.

Akai Bakery sells bread at 1030 Monday to Friday and just before midnight on Saturday. Join the social occasion around the stone oven just before midnight as people wait for the hot bread to finish baking.
