Auckland Night Markets are now in seven different locations across Auckland. Starting in Pakuranga in 2010, the Night Markets have steadily expanded and become a regular event in the local entertainment calendar.
The markets are growing in popularity due to their appeal to all age groups. It’s a great night out for the family, and the undercover location means it’s an all-weather event.
The markets are free, but make sure you bring a lot of spending money, as there is plenty of food, fashion, toys and lots of interesting sights and smells to tempt the senses!
The kids can experience food from other cultures, hear live music and watch performances. Buskers, magicians and dance troupes provide additional entertainment at some events.
Food is the big component, where you can sample cuisine from dozens of different cultures. There are of course the ethnic favourites like Thai and Chinese, and for those looking for something different there are some rare delicacies on offer from most regions of the world. But we won’t spoil the surprise!
