|It's always fun to watch the French Crepe vendors at work!|
In the pictures below, there's a guy thinning out dough to make a flaky, almost pastry dough roti to eat with peanut sauce or curry, and a man at the Moroccan food stall doling out the tasty honey treats they sell. We try and hit different stalls every time we are there, but we do have our favourites that we inexorably get drawn back to every time.
Particularly because this is the cold season in Wellington, there's a range of hot drinks to be had at the market, from the self-help Milo (ovaltine-ish for those who don't know it) to Moroccan Mint Tea, to Mexican Hot Chocolate. On a cold, windy, rainy night, this does just the trick to keep you warm and happy while you enjoy the food and music.
Vendors at the Night Market also sell books, art, homeopathic remedies, honey-based cosmetics, and advertise shoe repairs. It's an eclectic assembly of people who come, so another big draw is to people-watch. If you are in Wellington on any Friday night of the year (presumably except for Christmas or New Years), then I would definitely recommend going down to the Left Bank just off of Cuba St.
