A Journey of Resilience and Growth

Nau mai, Haere mai: Welcome

The Riverside Pantry is a collaborative space that brings together a diverse range of independent businesses under one roof. The emphasis is on supporting small-scale, locally-owned enterprises and providing a platform for us to showcase our products and talents.

One of the key features of the Riverside Pantry is our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. Many of the businesses housed within the Pantry prioritise eco-friendly practices, such as using ethically sourced materials, reducing waste and supporting fair trade principles. This eco-conscious ethos has helped foster a sense of responsibility and shared values among the pantry's members and customers.

The Pantry has also played a significant role in the post-earthquake revitalisation of Christchurch. In the years following the devastating earthquakes in 2010 and 2011, which caused widespread destruction in the city, the Riverside Pantry emerged as a symbol of resilience and community spirit. Since its opening in September 2019 it has provided a platform for local businesses to rebuild and thrive, contributing to the overall rejuvenation of the city's economy and cultural landscape.

The Pantry has become a vibrant destination for those seeking authentic experiences and a sense of connection in the heart of Christchurch.

From the team at Riverside Pantry ~ we look forward to welcoming you to our shared space.
