Night Noodle Markets 2019

Great news for Wellington noodle lovers — hawker-style food gathering Night Noodle Markets is set to make another appearance in the capital. This year's outdoor noodle season will once again be held across ten nights (17–26 April) at Basin Reserve.

While the Night Noodle Markets started in Australia 20 years ago, the format only made its way across the Tasman in 2016. Courtesy of media company, Stuff, the event is now hosted in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington.

The event is a pop-up market celebrating the thin squiggly cuisine of Asia, though attendees can also expect to pick up reliable favourites like dumplings, curry and barbecued meats. Last year's event also saw an appearance from cult Australian ice creamery Gelato Messina who served a range of Filipino-inspired desserts. Applications for 2019 stallholders are currently open.

Sustainability is a key focus for organisers. In previous years the Auckland event has diverted 95 percent of waste from the landfill by using Innocent Packaging and Globelet resuable cups.

Entry is totally free and dishes range from $5–15. The event is also cashless so you'll only be able to pay with credit card or Eftpos.
