Wildfoods Stallholders

A celebration of all things wild from the West Coast, the Hokitika Wildfoods Festival has something for everyone.  This year’s festival-goers can enjoy all the usual wild treats with some exciting gourmet options.  For the foodies there will be marinated tuna, whitebait patties, gourmet sausages, smoked high country salmon and an assortment of game meat.  Some of the newer additions include chicken’s feet, clams and hangi. 

For a challenge, experience some of the wilder foods. The iconic Festival huhu grubs are on the menu along with mountain oysters, crocodile bites, grasshoppers and snails.   The Festival is all about exposing your palate to something new.
