Tony and Queenie Jung are no strangers to an early start.
Since 2008, the couple have been getting up before the crack of dawn to have their truck packed and ready to go by 3 o’clock every Sunday morning.
They leave their Levin property and travel south to Wellington, where they unload their fresh fruit and vegetables as the sun rises and the city wakes up.
After being stallholders at the Harbourside Market for 12 years, the couple say it’s a great place to be.
“We enjoy it, there’s very nice people here.”
Tony’s family originally came from Guangdong Province in the south of China. He moved to New Zealand in 1989 and stayed with his uncle working as a market gardener.
