It was relatively quiet on a Friday night, and understandably so. Small market with a limited and expensive selection of street food. There were also a few stalls selling some generic notebooks/phone cases but that's about it. I wouldn't recommend a visit.

I love a good market, and even better a night market, but I was underwhelmed by Wellington's Friday & Saturday night markets. Most of the food stalls seemed overpriced and not very inventive. Good for a 5 minute walk through, but that's about it.

The market itself is very small for a good market, the food quality we had was good and very reasonable price also. There is a variety so you have some choice, was nice but doesn’t take long to pop in and out.

Wellington night market was refreshing. It's not massive but big enough to have atmosphere and also a ton of different eating options. Really felt spoilt for choice and wish I could return regularly to try other things. Wish my city had night markets like this......More

Excellent selection of ethnic food - everything from Moroccan, Indian, Thai, Mexican, Indonesian....lots to choose from. It was a little cramped - not a lot of space in the area it is set up in so when it’s busy it can be a little uncomfortable...More

Lovely visit to night market, heaps of variety in food options (not much in terms of crafts or produce). Fun with great ambience.
