Like a Hump Day bright spot nestled in between the Queen Vic's Winter and Summer Night Markets, the precinct's springtime Europa Night Market is back to brighten up Wednesday nights from September 21–October 26.

For six weeks, the market will play host to a vibrant Euro-style bazaar, with entertainment and wafting food aromas promising to transport you to a different European destination each week. You can feast your way through over 25 food and drink vendors, shop an array of market stalls, and catch roving entertainers and live tunes, all designed to whisk you away to some far-flung locale.

Kicking things off on September 21, the market will be saying 'ciao' to the flavours and sounds of Italy, with bites like Sicilian-style fried arancini and woodfired 400 Gradi pizza, plus entertainment by Siesta Cartel and Elvira.

The following week will take you on a trip to Central and Eastern Europe, by way of pierogi and traditional dance performances; while October 5 is your ticket to Oktoberfest, with a German-inspired beer hall serving up sausages, Oompah bands and European brews.

The Iberian Peninsula gets a look-in on October 12, with paella and Casa Nata's ​​Portuguese tarts, before the following week serves up a Mediterranean affair. A French celebration wraps up the series on October 26 with an evening of oozy raclette, croissants and entertainment from French mime artists.

The Europa Night Market returns 5–10pm Wednesdays, from September 21–October 26.
