The Queen Victoria Market is about to become a haven for all things Portuguese when Taste of Portugal rolls into town on Sunday, June 9. Expect the country's food, craftsmanship, art and culture to come together in an all-day festival that features influence from several Portuguese-speaking communities, which includes not only Portugal, but Brazil and East Timor, too.

To start, there will be heaps of Portuguese and Brazilian street food and drinks on offer, including those gooey custard tarts the former is known for. Chorizo making workshops will be on as well, and we're betting you'll be able to find some sardines and feijoada (a Brazilian stew) to top it all off.

Apart from all the eats, visitors can purchase artisan goods, ceramics and homewares from local and international makers. Art exhibitions and maker demonstrations will run throughout the day, and Brazilian samba classes will accompany a full lineup of traditional music and dance.

Entry is absolutely free and the festival will run from 10am–4pm, so there's plenty of time to get in on the action.
