Food & Traders
Mouthwatering! | Image © Mim Saxl Photography 2012
I’ve been coming for 10 years because it’s a safe peaceful place where I’m accepted and loved just as I am.
Whether you’d like to dine out three times per day or prepare you’re own meals, we offer a range of quality foods to delight your pallet.
All our cafés sell either vegetarian or vegan food. (We have no meat or fish.) Expect to sample the delights of:
- The Buddhafield Café —organic, vegan food. Start the day with a cooked breakfast and pick from our afternoon-evening menu.
- Chai Chapel — with percussion instruments for sale, drumming circles and workshops.
- The Chai Shop — organic falafels, teas, chai and cakes.
- The Common Loaf Bakery — Freshly baked pizza and artisan bread products. More on the Common Loaf Bakery website.
- Lost Horizons sauna and café, chillout space and late night cabaret.
- Nomad — Organic and fairtrade food including chips and curries.
- Outer Regions — organic, fair trade food by their multi-cultural team, offering specialties from Tibet, North India, the Mediterranean, West Africa and the Middle East, as well as organic homemade cakes and snacks. See the Outer Regions Facebook page.
- Padma Pancakes — organic crêperie and music/performance space.
- Pachamamas — Chai and cakes in their remarkable double-tipi.
Lost Horizons and Small World also have cafés accompanying their stage. More about them on the music & performance page.

We hope to have an on-site Nurtured by Nature store (based in Wellington town centre), selling cereals, soya milk, teas, eco-toiletries including nappies. Sunseed provided a daily shopping service, taking orders and providing the goods the same evening or following morning.
We expect there to be at least one stall selling fresh fruit and veg.
Shops, Fly Pitches and Campaign Stalls
We will have the Buddhafield Shop, courtesy of Dhiramati’s Buddhist Images, which offers a wealth of beautiful range of Buddhist hangings, statues, jewellery, gongs, postcards etc.
There will also be a host of traders, fly pitches and not-for-profit campaign stalls.
We make a distinction between a trader and a campaign stall. You’re a Trader if you are primarily selling goods of any sort. You’re a Campaign Stall if you’re principally raising awareness of a social, ethical, political or charitable issue.
Please note that we currently have sufficient caterers.
