Footscray Night Market
Footscray Station is firing up for this Friday night market series, featuring a globe-trotting array of food stalls and stacks of entertainment.
By day, Footscray Markets is famous as a buzzing, multicultural food shopping destination. But for the next two Fridays, the fun will be kicking on after dark, too, as the precinct's forecourt plays host to the return of its weekly night market series, running until May 7.
From 5pm each Friday, head on in to the Footscray Night Market to take your tastebuds on a border-hopping adventure, as you make your way through a tasty array of hawker-style food stalls. The theme for the May 7 event is simply 'closing night', though you can expect to find plenty of other culinary delights also on offer. If previous years are anything to go by, we're anticipating oodles of noodles, stacks of smoky charred skewers, mountains of paella and dumplings in abundance. There'll also be liquid offerings from local favourites like Footscray's own Hop Nation brewery.
In between all the noshing, you'll be kept well entertained with a program of live music, traditional dances and DJ's spinning tunes until 10pm.
