Co-owner of the Kāpiti Food Fair, Helene Judge says, “We are thrilled our vendor launch triggered many bookings from repeat and new vendors meaning we only have less than 50 sites left.  We know the Fair is a fantastic platform for vendors to showcase their unique offerings and contribute to the vibrant food culture in Kāpiti.  We encourage all interested vendors to secure their spot if they wish to be at the 2024 Fair, as spaces are limited and in high demand.” 

Interested vendors can register online through the Kāpiti Food Fair website.  All bookings are curated to maximise variety for visitors with the aim of 60% of vendors offering packaged goods and 40% being ready to eat deliciousness for consumption on the day of the Fair.
