A farmers' market in Kaikōura has been flooded by locals trying to buy fresh meat, fruit and vegetables for the first time since the earthquakes.
The produce was driven as far north as Oaro before it had to be moved onto a boat to get the produce into Kaikōura.
Kaikōura Fruit and Vege co-op owner Anna Medway says it has been a massive effort to get fresh goods into Kaikōura.
"It's been massive and everyone has been screaming for nutrition and a bit of freshness in their meals," she says.
"With the minimal fuel to actually get around, it's hard work.
"The customers are desperate, especially mums with kids [but] they're really thankful and grateful [for the fresh supplies]."

One Kaikōura resident said she can't wait to eat fresh food.
"I'm sick of canned food," says Latarla King.
"Quite a few of us have come down [to get supplies]."
Another Kaikōura resident says she is excited about the fresh food.
"I'm so excited, we're going to have steak," she says.
"I'm quite excited about dinner tonight.
"Everyone's been really supportive in the community, if you've got something that somebody else doesn't then they just trade."

More supplies are on the way after the Kaikōura Inland Road was reopened on Wednesday morning.
