New Lynn Night Market

New Lynn Night Market is a global food and culture market nestled in the heart of New Lynn.

We focus on authentic and traditional street foods from around the world, local crafts and family-friendly entertainment.

The market is a social enterprise run by us, with support from our valued partners Whau Local Board, Community Waitakere and EcoMatters.



Opening Hours and Location 

Thursday evenings from 5:30pm at the New Lynn Community Centre, 45 Totara Avenue, New Lynn, Auckland.

Zero Waste

Wash Against Waste, a programme by our partner EcoMatters, provides dishwashing facilities with crockery and cutlery for customers. Recycling, compostable and landfill waste are sorted and disposed of accordingly every week.
