Dandenong Night Market
Spend four evenings listening to free live music and downing sangria at Dandenong's new night market.
Melbourne's second oldest (and second largest) municipal market is doing something new this summer — it's launching its first-ever night market. Running over four Thursdays from January 9–30, the nights will be filled with live music, pop-up wine bars, roving performers and, of course, lots of food.
Pop over for street food snacks from Flamin' Skewers, Greek doughnuts filled with hazelnut chocolate from St Gerry's, icy from desserts from Sweet Factory, African barbecue, Caribbean dishes, deep-fried ice cream and more. You'll be able to pair all this with sangria from Running Bull, too.
Once you've had your dinner, you'll find live music from the likes of Triple J Unearthed's Yazmini, Aussie singer Ben Mitchell and guitarist Zac Godwin, as well as a silent disco, a flower wall, bubble artists and giant seagull puppets. Before you leave, don't forget to peruse the local artisan stalls selling food, homewares, jewellery and more, too.
Dandenong Night Market runs from 4.30–9.30pm.
