It's the main reason most of Melbourne has made their way to Good Food Month over the last couple of years, and in 2017, the ever-popular Night Noodle Markets are back — and they're bigger than ever.

But this year it will be sans Good Food Month — the four-week food showcase will scoot over to June 2018. As a standalone event, the market will see 30 different stalls converge on Birrarung Marr for a whopping 18 nights this October. Among the spoils will be all manner of noodles, dumplings and other delights from Hochi Mama, Mr Miyagi, Hoy Pinoy and Wonderbao. For dessert, Gelato Messina returns (predictably) with a menu of pure wonder (including a deep-fried gelato katsu sandwich) and a green tea and pistachio gelato version of the popular Japenese snack, onigiri.

There will be live music and entertainment, a pop-up cellar door, a garden bar and many interactive displays to check out on a bellyful of bao.

The Night Noodle Markets are once again at Birrarung Marr and will run from Thursday, November 9 until Sunday, November 26. They'll be open Monday and Tuesday 5-9pm, Wednesday and Thursday 5–10pm, Friday 5–11pm, Saturday 4–10pm, and Sunday 4–9pm. Entry is free but the place — if other years are anything to go by — will be packed.
