This winter, Carseldine's markets aren't celebrating Christmas in July — but they are still celebrating. And, they're popping up later in the day, too. There mightn't be an overt emphasis on festive cheer at this stint of browsing, buying and eating, but winter is well and truly in the spotlight instead. So, expect to feel merry while revelling in all things frosty when the weekly northside market makes a one-off move to twilight from 4–10pm on Saturday, July 27.

Dubbed Carseldine Wintertide Wonderland Twilight Markets, this event is putting food firmly in the spotlight, with culinary stalls and trucks serving up everything from barbecue fare to churros. Taking cues from Europe, there'll be a Swiss Alps-inspired pop-up bar serving glühwein and schnapps, plus twilight bonfires to keep everyone warm.

Shopping is still on the agenda, of course — and, if you want to go home with all your present-buying taken care of well in advance of Christmas, that's an option. Attendees can look forward to a sizeable array of handmade wares to peruse, including Carseldine's usual array of vendors. In total, there'll be more than 250 stalls to check out.

Entry costs $3, and you'll also score a soundtrack to your eating, drinking and shopping thanks to two stages filled with live music.
