Of course, there will also be coffee vendors onsite for when you need a delicious espresso and the Mills Reef tent will be stocked with the vineyard’s own wine selection, Monteith’s beers, RTDs and non-alcoholic beverages.


Tantalise your tastebuds with something from Langos Hungarian Bread Puffs or perhaps try the NZ Wildfoods Gourmet Shuttle – think fresh grilled snapper, grilled beef tenderloin, vegetarian falafel and gourmet venison, lamb, wild pork and salmon burgers.

We’ll also have some delicious café creations on offer - paninis, filo parcels, smoothies and coffee – as well as sushi and pizzas. After something for desert? How about Nice Blocks’ organic, fair trade, vegan ice-blocks and coconut based ice-cream.

And if you’re just after a humble scoop of chips, well we’ll have that too…as well as hot ham/beef rolls with gravy, burgers and whitebait & mussel fritters. So many delicious options!


Martinborough punters can also look forward to Langos Hungarian Bread Puffs and all the NZ Wildfoods Gourmet Shuttle has to offer, as well as paninis, filo parcels, smoothies, sushi and pizzas.

Some vendors will also be serving up a good cause, with the Wairarapa Resource Centre partnering up with Tip Top ice-cream to fundraise. After a vegan treat? Then head to the SAFE (Save Animals From Exploitation) stall for a meat-free BBQ.

And of course, there will also be hot chips, ham and beef rolls with gravy, burgers and whitebait & mussel fritters.


Stop by local vendor Shellz Kitchen for everything from seafood to kebabs, nachos, soup and cakes, while the Coffee Guy is your go-to for delicious espresso and cookies.

Mr Twister will be keeping things spinning with hot potato spirals, curly fries and hot dogs and for something a little different, swing by the Maori Fried Bread stall.

If you’re after a vegan treat then don’t walk past SAFE’s meat-free BBQ and there’s plenty on offer for dessert too, so check out Real Fruit Ice-cream for fresh fruit ice-creams, sundaes and smoothies.


Stop by Maestro for some Mediterranean fanfare, the Hororata Pie Cart will be baking gourmet pies onsite, complete with gravy, and Miss Lilly’s Boutique Café will have everything from mussel fritters to American hotdogs and nachos.

Spud Stop has a variety of baked potatoes on offer – including gluten free options, and if you’re after a vegan treat then don’t walk past SAFE’s meat-free BBQ. Liquid Velvet Coffee will be serving up fair trade, organic coffees and hot chocolates, and if you’re just after a humble scoop of chips, well we’ll have that too – as well as cheese and crackers, fish and chips, sandwiches, muffins and savouries.


Drawing on tastes from home and abroad, tantalise your tastebuds with something from Langos Hungarian Bread Puffs, Fritz Weiners’ smoked bratwurst sausage and Mexi-Kai burritos and tacos, to Gourmet Grills’ selection of barbequed meats, seafood, vegetable kebabs, burgers and ribs, vegan treats and delicious deserts.

For those of you that are feeling a little adventurous, head along to Urban Escargot for some venison ciabatta and escargot. Seafood fan? We’ll also be serving up whitebait & mussel fritters, steamed garlic mussels and good ol’ fashioned fish n’ chips.

If you’re after some vegan-friendly options, then head along to SAFE (Save Animals From Exploitation) who are serving up a meat free BBQ, or the Fresh Springroll stall, who will have fresh raw vegan springrolls served on banana leaves with mint, coriander, lemon, peanuts, chilli, carrrots, lettuce, avocado and mango.

If you’re after more fairground fare such as a scoop of chips or a burger, we’ll have that too. And for the sweet-tooth inclined out there, don’t walk passed Nice Blocks’ organic fair trade ice blocks and ice cream, or Whites & Co’s soft serve yoghurt.

Artist update:

Congratulations go to both Aaradhna for ‘Wake Up’ and OPSHOP for ‘Never Leave Me Again’ for their gold single status. And while Missy Higgins is currently playing some shows at Melbourne Zoo as part of the ‘Music Against Wildlife Extinction’ series, Che Fu and Aaradhna are hard at work in rehearsals together for their highly anticipated soul set.
