For the past two years, Melburnians have missed out on the globe-trotting fare of the Queen Victoria Market's legendary winter night market series, with the long-running event cancelled twice due to COVID-19. But the precinct is promising to help fill some of that void this December, with the return of another food-filled pop-up: Food Truck Stop.

On Wednesday, December 1, 8 and 15, this summer edition of Food Truck Stop will serve up a weekly showcase of street eats from around the globe, courtesy of a hefty rotation of food vendors. It'll be the market's first nighttime activation since Melbourne emerged from its most recent lockdown.

Two Fat Indians

From 5pm each week, you'll be able to explore the global food truck lineup, feasting on goat curry and smashed samosas from Two Fat Indians, Vietnamese noodle bowls from Nem 'N Nem, Pasta Face's Tuscan-style beef ragu gnocchi, and traditional chicken and lamb yiros from The Greek Trojan Yiros. Elsewhere, there'll be lobster rolls, Texas barbecue, Jamaican jerk chicken, Tex-Mex street tacos, house-made gelato and more.

If you find all that eating to be thirsty work, you can swing past the Beer Garden for a bev — the summer-themed pop-up is slinging an all-Victorian lineup featuring Mitchelton Wines, Brick Lane Brewing beers, Coldstream Brewery ciders and cocktails crafted on Antagonist Spirits.

Entry to the pop-up is free, with food and drinks available to purchase. It all kicks on until 10pm each week.

Catch Food Truck Stop at Queen Victoria Market, corner of Queen and Therry Streets, Melbourne, on December 1, 8 and 15.
