This dedicated porridge food stall is set to warm your cockles this winter

Spoons at the ready people! Porridge season is in full swing and this might just be the best place to scoop up a bite of the soul-warming breakfast staple this winter. Introducing The Porridger — the new Parnell Market food stall that’s making it its mission to warm Aucklanders from the inside out, one delicious bowl of oats at a time.

Combining organic steel oats — chosen because of their added nutrients and protein — with delectable flavourings, toppings and garnishes, The Porridger is serving up something far more than your average brekkie. The food stall will be offering a rotating menu, switching up the recipes and introducing new flavours each week to keep the porridge enthusiasts coming back for more. If their past concoctions are anything to go by — think steaming oats topped with chia seeds, runny honey, sweet blueberry compote and toasted coconut or Whittaker’s peanut butter chocolate with sliced banana and a hearty drizzling of Larry’s toffee sauce — then we’re sure to be in for a treat. With options in mind for a summer take on porridge and a following that’s growing by the second, we’re expecting these porridge connoisseurs to hang around long after winter has thawed.

The Porridger operates out of the Parnell Markets every Saturday, 8am-12pm. For more information of their whereabouts, click here
