Eat Street Yamba

On October 6th, it’s time to fill those bellies with some of the yummiest international foods in the region. Northern River residents are invited to Eat Street Yamba in Coldstream Street Yamba hosted by the Rotary Club of Yamba

This is the 3rd year Rotary have bought the International food markets to Yamba.  Entry is by gold coin donation and 100% of funds raised from this event will be donated to provide “Water to the West”. This funding will help provide bulk and bottled water to our drought affected towns in the West on Northern NSW.   

And with Rotary’s food market popping up in Yamba the casual diners stand to benefit from wonderful flavours and simple menus alongside some reasonably prices dishes.  There is a huge variety of countries represented including Indian, Thai, Indonesian, New Zealand, African, Italian, Japanese, Turkey, and of course Australian.

Director of Community Projects for the Rotary Club of Yamba Gayle Doe said that some of the Valleys best food connoisseurs are involved. “ Within a 3 hour drive of Yamba, we have some  incredible food vendors that make some wonderful gourmet food.  We have over 40 vendors creating and selling delicious dishes from around the world”. As well as tasting plates, Eat Street Yamba  will also feature food producers from around the region selling local products from chilli jam to olives, home grown tomatoes and garlic and local honey. We are also showcasing Townsends newest Beer producing venue, Sanctus brewery.  And don’t forget the sweet tooths with some of the most amazing desserts to be found.  With food choices for all ages and all food preferences you can’t go wrong here. We have several vegan and organic food vendors this year and each year we get bigger and better.

And the kids have not been forgotten with several jumping castles,   fairy floss,  soft serves, candy and liquorice and sno cones to keep them busy.

Yamba Rotary will also be joining in the festivities by selling beer, wine and soft drinks during the markets for people to enjoy.

It is fabulous to dine outside in the street and enjoy the wonderful weather.  We will have tables and chairs down the street so customers can sit back and soak up the ambiance, listen to some great music and enjoy their meals.

Eat Street Yamba will be held on the 6st October starting officially at 4pm.  The evening twilight on the first day of daylight savings makes these markets a special on of kind experience that we hope you will enjoy.
