Vegan Night Maakete

Last Saturday of every month

Christchurch’s regular Vegan Night Mākete (market) showcases the best local plant-based foods and goods, raises awareness of the environmental/animal welfare and health benefits of veganism, and brings the community together.

Held the last Saturday of the month at the Phillipstown Community Hub (39 Nursery Rd) from 3.30pm to 7pm in winter (June, July, August and September) and from 5pm to 8pm the rest of the year, rain or shine.

Exhibitor information

To be eligible to hold a stall at the Vegan Night Mākete, you must fit one of the following criteria:

a) You operate a food business and will offer only vegan food.

b) You operate a business that is of interest to vegans (e.g.: food stuffs, drinks, retail products or health care products, excluding supplements).

b i) Supplements: We do not accept registrations from businesses whose primary business is to sell supplements. Stalls selling supplements may be considered IF it is not the principle activity of the business and the supplement is of interest to the vegan community. e.g. B12.

b ii) Animal testing: We do not accept registrations from businesses who wish to sell products at the Expo that are tested on animals.

c) You own and operate an entirely vegan business.

d) You are part of a not-for-profit group with vegan principles. Please note we only accept registrations from NFPs and political parties IF they have veganism clearly stated in their aims/policies.

e) You are part of a vegan venture, community group or special project.



We expect that no meat or animal products will be brought on site on the day and that you bring no materials promoting a non-vegan diet such as leaflets with non-vegan recipes. We also ask that your stall is staffed at all times as we will not be able to safeguard your goods or respond to enquiries about your stall if you leave the site.

Preference will first be given to vegan, then to vegetarian-operated businesses, but others will be able to exhibit if they fit the other criteria and there is no vegan or vegetarian-operated businesses filling the niche.

Stalls are considered by the Committee of the Christchurch Vegan Society on the basis of these criteria. Latecomers may be considered if there is still space available.

We hope to see you at Christchurch’s first ever Vegan Night Mākete! Stallholders can register below.
