One of South Melbourne's iconic food celebrations is back for a lip-smacking weekend of music and molluscs. Port Phillip Mussel & Jazz Festival returns to the South Melbourne Market from Saturday, March 9–Sunday, March 10. Once again, the precinct will come alive for a food-focused, tune-filled street party from 11am each day, with the humble mussel as the star of the show.

Seafood lovers will find themselves in heaven, feasting through a host of special dishes from resident vendors, plus all the usual market favourites slinging everything from pastries and porchetta rolls to fine cheese and cannoli.

The market has once again teamed up with The Nature Conservancy to deliver the Shuck Don't Chuck recycling program — leftover mussel, oyster and scallop shells from the weekend's feasting will be collected, cured and reused to help rebuild marine ecosystems in the bay.

As always, there'll also be plenty of fresh catches for entertainment — enjoy soul and jazz tunes on the main stage alongside cooking demonstrations, kid's activities and roving entertainers.
