Hold onto your paper plates, Sydney — there's another Night Market coming to Carriageworks. This time it's curated by Porteño's Elvis Abrahanowicz and Ben Milgate and will feature lots of smoke, spice and fire, reflecting this year's theme of 'Burning Love'.
A slew of 55 stallholders will take over the carriageway from 5pm on Friday, July 27. You can expect to once again sample goods from New South Wales' top tier of restaurants, winemakers, breweries and providores, alongside cooking demos — including Aboriginal fire making and cooking techniques, and a woodfired whole lamb — and live music.
Menu highlights, curated by the aforementioned Porteño boys, will include shellfish cooked over coals from Rising Sun Workshop, smoked fish from seafood genius John Susman, whole charred pumpkin from No. 1 Bent Street and smoked mushroom toasties from food rescue charity OzHarvest. Joining the night markets for the first time will be Belles Hot Chicken, Spice Temple, Mamak and Buffalo Dining Club.
Plus, beer will be supplied by Newtown's Young Henrys and Grifter Brewing Co; cocktails will be mixed by Archie Rose, Earl's Juke Joint, and Jacoby's; and there'll be wine from the likes of P&V Wine and Giorgio de Maria Fun Wines.
Tickets are $10 — head to the Carriageworks website to book ahead.
