HOW TO MAKE A MARKET BUFFET EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR GUESTS

Bringing the ultimate experience to your guests comes down to authenticity. Being able to transport your guests to other countries, fairs, farms, and markets with a creative set up that goes beyond food serves to create a memorable experience.

Mogogo offers a large variety of “market feel” configurations – knowing that the ability to bring a true market atmosphere to the guests can really set the tone for any event.  The Mogogo Market Stations have many benefits of thoughtful design,  but provide enhanced functionality, for example it aids crowd control, line formation and maximizes space.

The Market Stations offered by Mogogo make for special buffet tables because they can stand alone but also provide great focal points within a set up that can include other shaped catering stations.

What makes these stations special buffet tables compared to the rest is that it provides a unique marketplace vibe, while keeping its 360° view. This allows for effective people-flow and line cuts.

A venue can adapt the number of tiers by using raised shelves and play with the design and placement of ingredients or cutlery without giving up the three existing tiers.

While having the unit standing alone is an option, service is taken to the next level by having a staff member or chef serving from the buffet who can discuss the food options, fresh ingredients and the food source with customers, adding that marketplace encounter. This option boosts guest interaction and adds a seller-buyer vibe that is so unique to any market.

There are many creative angles you can take when setting up mobile buffet from using them as an ingredient stand where you set up multiple baskets, sacks or boxes filled with different vegetables, fruits, fully utilising the bottom shelves of the stations. This kind of idea works perfectly for a salad bar, antipasti station or fresh orange juice stand where boxes of the raw vegetables or fruits can be used in the lower tiers as decor while the main tiers offer the fresh juice selections.

Other Mogogo add-ons that go perfectly with this marketplace concept is the signpost with the blackboards which is ideal to write the “fresh from the farm” or even an ingredient list of what is being served. Additionally, there is a canopy option which certainly sets the tone and  an arch where you can hang ham, vegetables, and nets to add more of a real feel to the setup.

Also, the market vibe can be useful for other food-themed stations such as fresh-squeezed juices with a wide variety of mixes and fruits to choose from. In the afternoon you can set up a sashimi and sushi station; the fresh fish assortment will really bring to life the fish market vibe.

Whether you incorporate the round or square market stations you will really bring the marketplace to life in your indoor venue. More than just a bench for self-service food, these well-designed mobile units create remarkable food colour mixes and features in your function spaces, that bring your guests and your staff together for the ultimate customer experience.

Truly capture an authentic market vibe and bring it to life with these unique looking stations.
