After a two-year, pandemic-fuelled hiatus, the Queen Victoria Market's ever-popular Summer Night Market is back to fire up your Wednesday nights from January 5–April 6. And yes, it's going to be a big one.

Each week, the market will feature a mouthwatering lineup of food vendors slinging street eats from every corner of the globe. We're talking melty raclette from Frencheese, meaty US-style barbecue fare courtesy of Bigger Than Texas, The Cypriot Kitchen's famed haloumi chips and spherical sweet treats from the doughnut masters at Taki's Balls.

To wash it all down, you'll find no less than five dedicated festival bars, along with drinks stalls from the likes of Antagonist Spirits. As always, there'll be a program of live, local tunes to soundtrack your wanderings, with one stage dedicated to DJs and another serving up a rotation of acoustic acts.

Shoppers can expect a diverse range of artisan maker stalls, brimming with handmade gifts, homewares, fashion and more. The Book Nook features a selection of new and pre-loved books, along with local author chats and stalls filled with secondhand records. There's even a pop-up space dedicated to serving up future insights from a lineup of leading clairvoyants, fortune tellers and psychics, dubbed The Spirit Zone.
