Milton by Moonlight

Milton's weekly market is hosting a moonlit Saturday-night session in mid-June to embrace winter.

The middle of the year means shorter days and longer nights — and, rather than yearning for Brisbane's summer sun, you might as well embrace the two. Here's one way: Milton by Moonlight, Milton Markets' returning midyear shindig. On the agenda: everything that makes this inner-west market a firm favourite, but during an early winter evening.

Taking place from 4–10pm on Saturday, June 15, the event will start serving up bites to eat — and setting up 140-plus stalls to shop — in the late afternoon, so you can jump into the fun as twilight approaches. Then, when the moon comes out, you can browse, buy, sip, munch and dance the night away.

With gourmet street food, artisanal wares and live entertainment on offer — the former usually including dumplings, tacos, noodles and wings; the latter normally across multiple stages — you'll have plenty to see, taste, purchase and listen to. And to drink as well, thanks to the pop-up Stone & Wood bar, and also glühwein.

Entry costs $3 at the gate — and if you're driving there, parking costs $2 as well.
