Hey foodie friends! A new month means all new events and October is set to be a good one for street food here in Auckland. A couple of brand new events are kicking off and we’re so excited for you to experience them. Here’s what’s happening at Auckland Food Truck Collective this month:
Food Truck Fridays at Britomart
Takutai Square, weekly on Friday 11.30am - 2.30pm
Food Truck Fridays will continue rolling out the goods in Auckland’s CBD every Friday this month, so pop down to Britomart and enjoy some sunshine and street food. With vendors like Captain Crepes, Amaranto Pasta & Cucina (unbelievable gluten-free Italian delicacies), Double Dutch Fries and more, you’re sure to find something you love. We’re particularly excited for an epic event on the 4th of October - it’s national cinnamon bun day in Sweden and Scandibunz are celebrating with a massive giveaway! They’ll be handing out hundreds of freshly baked buns to any and all passers by to commemorate this special day and spread the Swedish love here in Auckland. If this sounds like a bit of you, make sure you swing by Takutai Square on your lunch break.
As always, check our events page for more info!
Street Food at Point Chevalier
Point Chevalier Community Centre, Friday 4th October, 4.30 - 8.30pm
This month a brand new AFTC event is starting up and we couldn’t be more thrilled. On the first Friday of the month, some of Auckland’s finest food trucks will be parked up at Point Chevalier Community Centre to deliver your street food fix. We’re starting things off with a bang and a pretty amazing lineup— think The Rolling Pin, Temaki Truck, Miam Miam, GRUB and gourmet Grownup Donuts for dessert (or dinner, we won’t judge!). As well as incredible kai, there will be live music and great community vibes. With a kids play area and face painting available, this event is perfect for families.
Take a look at the event page and let us know you’re coming!
Street Food at Deep Creek
Deep Creek Brewery, Silverdale, Friday 11th October, 5.30 - 9.30pm
No longer do foodies of the North Shore and Hibiscus Coast need to travel to the big smoke to curb their street food cravings! AFTC is teaming up with the legends behind Deep Creek Brewing Co to host a night of fantastic food and great beer at Deep Creek’s own brewery. This month’s vendors include Wise Boys Burgers, Taco Loco, Napoli Central and Double Parked. For the sweet toothed among us, Lalele will be slinging scoops of their organic gelato all night long. Food and beer are always a pretty good combo, but we’ll be working with Deep Creek to bring you a special Food Truck/Beer recommendation to make sure you get the best match possible!
We’re super excited about this new event, see our Facebook event page for all the info you’ll need.
Te Atatu Night Market
Te Atatu Peninsula Community Centre, Friday 18th October, 5 - 9pm
A firm favourite amongst street foodies in Auckland, Te Atatu Night Market continues on the third Friday of October. Last month was the first session of the season and it was so good to be back—we can’t wait for the October market! Te Atatu’s amazing selection of crafts, artisans, makers and street food means there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy. And with one of the biggest line ups of food trucks in Auckland, there’s sure to be a tasty treat to tickle anyone’s tastebuds too!
