Hank Marvin Market
This Bayside market serves up a feast of food and drinks every Sunday.
Last year — much to the delight of Bayside locals — the team behind St Kilda East's perennially popular Hank Marvin Market launched a second market site in Brighton. Now, it's moved to a new permanent home just a suburb over in Sandringham.
Running weekly from April 7, Hank Marvin 2.0 is destined to be one of Sandringham's new go-to Sunday sessions, dishing up a smorgasbord of eats, drinks, shopping and entertainment every week from 9am till 3pm. Here, punters young, old and canine can expect the same sort of winning weekend formula that's earned the original such a cult following.
Living up to its name — Hank Marvin is a play on British Cockney slang for 'starving' — there'll be a globe-trotting lineup of culinary delights, with everything from bao, waffles, momos, yakiroti, American barbecue and vegan Indian snacks on the menu.
Artisanal food stalls, slinging everything from gluten-free cakes to hot sauce, will sit alongside those selling homewares and plants. There'll be coffee from the likes of Hallelujah Coffee to fuel your day, plus fresh-pressed juices and a pop-up bar stocked with craft beers and ciders.
And while the littlies get stuck into some face-painting, grown-ups can kick back with a burger, a brew and some tunes served up by the day's selection of local DJs.
