Meet the Owner

This is one of our amazing owners Laura . She grew up on this side of town and moved out to North Canterbury 10 years ago to start up a fruit and vege shop out there which she ran with her husband for ten years. Her nick name is Pocket Rocket . Mother of two and volunteer fire fighter in North Canterbury . Everyone loves working with her due to her ideas and speed she works at . You can see the smoke coming off her own feet !! She is the fun in Funky and loves being on the floor stocking and serving customers on the tills .

Thanks for being such a inspiration as an owner and a caring boss to us all .


The Funky Pumpkin is locally owned and operated. We are independent of any large retailers which gives us the ability to

a) shop around and source local product


b) jump on opportunities when they come up.

This is why our specials may change on a regular basis sometimes daily.

We buy fresh product every day and it basically comes in and goes straight out into the shop that day and into your baskets. This is how we maintain such fresh product.

When you shop at the Funky Pumpkin you are not putting money in the pockets of corporate companies but supporting a local Canterbury family.
