Pop Up Eats at more Horowhenua locations

Horowhenua Pop-Up Eats are popular

Popular food-truck market Pop Up Eats Horowhenua will be popping up in more locations around Horowhenua this summer.

Pop Up Eats is a lively food truck market popular with families, foodies and people wanting a night off cooking. A range of cuisine is on offer at each event depending on the availability of the food trucks.

The weekly Pop Up Eats events held in Levin are extremely popular, with many people making Pop Up Eats part of their weekly routine. These markets are a great way to bring people together and support local businesses and there has been interest in having similar events across the district. Horowhenua District Council is excited to bring Pop Up Eats to more towns within Horowhenua, and to spread Christmas cheer we are also hosting special Christmas-themed Pop Up Eats to celebrate the festive season.
