Brisbane's Night Noodle Markets Will Now Take Over the City Botanic Gardens This Spring
The Good Food Month favourite has rescheduled its postponed dates, and will now serve up its hawker-style dishes in September and October.
If you've ever been to Brisbane's Night Noodle Markets, you'll know that waiting can be an inescapable part of the experience. You usually need to wait in line to pick up your food, and to find somewhere to sit and eat. All that hawker-style food attracts plenty of Brisbanites, after all — and yes, the wait is always worth it.
In 2021, you'll be waiting in another manner, too, because this year's event is taking place later in the year. Initially, it was due to kick off on Wednesday, July 21 — and move to the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens — but, after announcing its full vendor and food lineup, the event had to scrap its winter plans. The reason: Greater Sydney's ongoing lockdown and the border and quarantine restrictions stemming from it, because many of the Night Noodle Markets' vendors are based in New South Wales.
Thankfully, the event's organisers are now hopeful about spring — so you can mark Wednesday, September 22–Sunday, October 3 in your diary. It'll be warmer, you'll want to spend more time outdoors, and the Botanic Gardens' many blooms will be blossoming, if you need a few more reasons to embrace the new time slot.
Accordingly, get ready to eat a heap of foods on sticks and tuck into mango sorbet crepes, just at a later date. All of the already-announced vendors and dishes will remain on the menu, too, so you can look forward to the same culinary lineup.
In total, 17 stallholders were headed our way, including returning favourites such as Hoy Pinoy, Bao Brothers, Bangkok Street Food, Donburi Station and Gelato Messina.
All other Good Food Month events have been going ahead as planned in July, so your stomach won't completely miss out this month.
