Vendor applications now open

crowd4

Vendor applications for the 2014/15 summer season of Gourmet Night Market are now open!

We welcome applicants with exciting, healthy food options and who have a focus on local and sustainable.  We encourage applications from local businesses who might wish to come just once or twice in a season, to connect with the community and showcase their eateries.

Expect more of the same laid back goodness in the summer sun at the mount, but also some one off exciting events. Think large live musical ensembles and a special christmas event!

This year we will grow slightly and will include a few food-related craft stalls.
Applications are now open right up until the event starts.
Please contact kim@gourmetnightmarket.co.nz for an application and info pack.

Saturday 29 March 5.00-9.30pm Coronation Park, Mount Maunganui

Also, since next Saturday/Sunday is Neighbours Day Aotearoa, Gourmet Night Market challenges you to bring your neighbours along, maybe even your whole street and get to know your community..
This is the last Gourmet Night Market for the summer… so get on down..

Gourmet Night Market end of season

002

The final Gourmet Night Market of the official 2013/14 season went out with a bang. We had a huge crowd of over 5000 and a 90% sell-out in our hot-food section.

Our official summer market season is now over, but we are collaborating with EARTH HOUR for a special one-off OFF THE GRID Gourmet Night Market on Saturday 29th March at Coronation Park.  All our food vendors will work off-the-grid using gas or other means to make your dinner… and we’ll be using a really cool solar powered generator for the music. Mauao Performing Arts will be running the entertainment program which will consist of music, dance and mixed-media and of course… lanterns!

Gourmet Night Market continues to grow!

Well we’ve been continually overwhelmed with the numbers coming out to play on a Friday night at Coronation Park.

The easiest way for us to figure out how many people are coming along is to look at the quantity of rubbish: which we know because we weigh all our different types of rubbish. And the numbers keep going up! We think over 6000 people visited our market on Friday night! Amazing!

The big news is that we ARE extending to the end of February and then we have one awesome night at the end of March… more on that later.

This week the incredibly cool crew of Mucho Mungo will be playing us some funky sounds…

 

See you guys Friday night 5-9pm Coronation Park, Mt Maunganui. Bring your blankets 🙂
