Hank Marvin Market

Southside just got a regular market full of top-notch grub.

Over 40 street food vendors are set up shop each week at Hank Marvin Market, a street food market happening every Saturday at Alma Park in St Kilda East. Transforming parks into a hub of fresh produce, food trucks and street food stalls, you've got to wonder: who is Hank? More than just a man, Hank Marvin draws on British Cockney slang for 'starving' — and quite rightly so, as Melburnians always seem to be hankering for their next good bite.

Founder Paul Wesolek spent years working the market food scene in London, and now he's back to highlight the best of Melbourne's street food vendors — those who are committed to responsible farming methods, seasonality and quality — as well as 20 local traders selling design and fine craft goods. The lineup changes each week, but favourites like Hammer & Tong, Happy Camper Pizza and the Little Mushroom Co. are often there, along with artisan doughnuts from Cobb Lane Bakery and traditional wood-fired bagels from Shtetl Bagels.
