Dumplings a hit at Franklin Market

Regular visitors of the Franklin Markets at Pukekohe may recognise stall holder Vickie.
Vickie arrived in New Zealand from Taiwan 24 years ago.

She studied a Bachelor’s degree in Food Technology and had worked in the food laboratory for 16 years. Then she realised her passion is to interact with people directly via food.

“Taiwan is a food heaven and I am very proud to be Taiwanese. My goal is to introduce the best Taiwanese foods to you all. The menu of my food trailer is just the tip of the iceberg. My grand mum and mum are both very good cooks, especially my mum who also taught me how to make dumplings,” Vickie said.

She said she was very lucky to be accepted and made part of the market five years ago. She loves the nice people and fresh produce that’s available.
“The vegetables from Pukekohe are definitely the icing on the cake for my dumplings,” she said.

Vickie is grateful to her loyal customers for their ongoing support and hopes that sometime in the future she will be able to have her own little shop somewhere in Franklin.
