The Hunt & Gather Markets are back.
And whilst everything you know and love about the Hunt & Gather markets is packing up from Pacific Park, you can rest assured that it's
only good times ahead with their new Hamilton location.
We chatted to Gemma from Hunt & Gather to get the low down and what you can expect from the new location.
Hh: So H&G is on the move, where can we find you and when?
Yes, it's a very exciting year ahead for us, and we now have
the opportunity to mix it up a bit with a brand new location! The new home of Hunt&Gather Markets for 2017 is Gregson Park, Hamilton, with the first
market taking place on Saturday 18th March.
Hh: Pacific Park has been the home of H&G since it began in 2013, what made you change locations?
We absolutely love Pacific
Park and Newcastle East, and there is a lot of exciting change happening in this area. So this change can take place, we have relocated for the rest of
the year. We are embracing this change and some great opportunities that it presents us with.
Hh: Can we expect the same H&G format or have you got some new things planned?
The format for Hunt&Gather will remain
the same, however now that we have a new space and a new community to work with, we have the opportunity to add to our formula. Expect to find what you
love about Hunt&Gather and more! The focus on Hunt&Gather is about enjoying the experience, feeling connected, catching up with loved ones, unwinding,
exploring. unearthing the amazing talent and embracing this great community we have. This new space gives us the opportunity to develop these core values
in a new community space.
Hh: Do you think moving to a new location will change H&G in anyway?
We held our annual Sunset Gather in Gregson Park
in December last year and it was such a success. If anything, the move will make the market more accessible to more people and we are excited to watch
people enjoy what we can do with this space.
Hh: What’s got you most excited about setting up in Gregson Park?
We are very excited to be working with the Hamilton community,
the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and working in such a beautiful space that is Gregson Park.
Hh: For anyone who’s yet to experience the H&G markets, what’s your top 3 tips?
1. Make a date with your loved ones -
Picnic together and enjoy the array of delicious food and drinks
2. Go slow and unwind - Pull up a rug and relax to sweet live tunes under the big old shady trees
3. Get there early and make a day of it. There are so many quality stalls to explore, great food and entertainment. There is something for everyone.
And if we could add a 4th tip….

Hh: Any exciting plans for the remainder of 2017 that you’re willing to share?
Ooooh we have some exciting events coming up this year, which we can’t wait to announce very soon...BUT...what we can tell you is that we are already
busy planning this year's Sunset Gather in Summer, AND we have an exciting new market launching this April! THE FRIDAY FLEA is a monthly flea market
held on the 1st Friday of each month from 5pm till 9pm. We are teaming up with the gang at The Greenroof Hotel, where we will convert their carpark into a ridiculously fun pre-loved clothing and accessories market, complete
with island bar, cocktails and a helluva line up of 80s and 90s music!!
