You know that Summer has arrived in Melbourne when the Night Market becomes your priority destination on Wednesday evenings. Now in its 16th year, the festivities will be kicking off on November 6 with all the usual goodies.
The Night Market is all about the food and the sangria. This year there will be over 60 food stalls you can sink your teeth into, including crab burgers, peking duck, Jamaican, and Spanish cuisine. For those who can fit in some dessert, check out the macarons and gelati stalls. For those that are just into the sangria, see how many cups you can enjoy before the sun goes down. We promise it won't disappoint.
If shopping is more your thing, the markets are bringing back all of your favourite stalls, and adding plenty of new ones to the lot. Whether you’re after locally designed jewellery and housewares, or treasure hunting for a vintage bargain, you're bound to find something to your tastes. This year the Night Market is also teaming up with Multicultural Arts Victoria to provide live music across three stages. This is a great way to check out Melbourne’s up and coming musical talent, and have a bit of relaxation in the summer sun while you're at it.
The Night Market will be running every Wednesday from 5-10pm until February 26.
