Married @ Market ST

27 January 2021

Napier City Business Inc together with The Hits Hawke’s Bay and Market Street Bar and Eatery along with many Local Napier CBD businesses are partnering up and getting ready to give away a wedding this upcoming Valentines weekend.

We all know 2020 was rough and many potential weddings were called off due to the restrictions Covid 19 brought so we thought it was time to show the love in Napier CBD.

In the spirit of supporting local we approached many local businesses to be part of a couple’s big day! Napier City Business Inc General Manager Pip Thompson is super stoked so many local businesses have agreed to participate and generously donate their products to make this wedding day happen.  

To be in to ‘win a wedding’ and get “Married @ Market Street” in the heart of the Napier CBD by ‘The Hits’ very own celebrant, Megan Banks on Friday 12th of February, applicants need to head to the win section at and apply, answer a few questions and be willing and  available for promotional purposes. 


It was an easy yes for Market St Bar and Eatery owners Sarah and Steve Kelly to co-sponsor Married @ Market Street. When we first heard the initial concept about Married @ Market St we jumped on board immediately. It’s such a fun offering and we love working within such a collaborative CBD where everyone pulls together. It conjures up exactly what Market St is about, fun, vibrancy and togetherness. Last year was tough on many businesses so we are looking forward to starting the year off with a bang with events like this.


The winners of “Married @ Market Street” will be announced LIVE on air on Friday 5th of February, allowing us one week to bring everything together for the wedding!  The winning couple will be able to invite 30  friends and family to celebrate the day with them. 


On the day of the wedding, The Hits Hawke’s Bay Breakfast Show will be broadcast LIVE on air on Friday the 12th of February from Market Street Green and Market Street Bar for the wedding breakfast!  The ceremony will air from 8 am with Megan Banks as the  celebrant. Throughout the show Adam & Megan will inform our listeners what is happening.


There will be an opportunity for Hawke’s Bay locals and visitors to get selfies or maybe even  ‘pop the question’ at the The Love LIghts during the weekend. The love lights will be at home in the Market Street/Emmerson Street Green from Friday 12 February to Sunday 14 February 9.30pm.
