Global flavours at Wellington Night Market
More than just dinner, held every Friday and Saturday on Cuba Street, Wellington Night Market is about community
On any given weekend, you might have your pick of Argentinian, Chilean, Indonesian, Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean or good old New Zealand hāngī.
There are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options galore, and nothing’s too pricy (which means there’s change left over for dessert!). Lots of the stalls sell bite-sized options, so if you’re feeling game, you can build your own tapas-style meal. Think of it as a gastronomical tour of the globe, without the cost of airfares.
Once you’ve made the toughest decision of the night – what to eat – you can relax and enjoy the live entertainment. The Night Market organisers love showcasing local talent, whether it’s big names on the Wellington music scene or talented buskers who they’ve shoulder-tapped and asked to perform.
