Sydney's Night Noodle Markets finally returned this week, opening at a new home in Prince Alfred Park on Tuesday, October 4. Sadly, the beloved markets have received yet another dose of bad luck in the form of a heavy dose of rain that's struck Sydney over the last couple of days, courtesy of La Niña.

After being forced to cancel last night's festivities at the last minute, the organisers' hand has been forced again today (Thursday, October 7) announcing on Instagram this afternoon that they would be called off for the second night in a row.

"Due to the ongoing weather conditions, we unfortunately have been advised to cancel again this evening due to safety concerns," the announcement reads.

This isn't the first time La Niña has had an impact on the markets this year; the event was originally set to return in March, but had to be postponed due to wet weather.

The markets will run until this Sunday, October 9, hosting stalls from the likes of Gelato Messina, Hoy Pinoy, Brendan Pang's Bumplings, Bangkok Street Food, Shallot Thai, Roll Up, Raijin, Calabang and Donut Papi — the best of which you can preview here.

The forecast for the next three days isn't looking particularly sunny, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting anywhere between 73–100mm of rain across the next three days.

Make sure you follow the Night Noodle Markets on Instagram for regular updates or any further cancellation news.

The 2022 Sydney Night Noodle Markets will run until Sunday, October 9 in Prince Alfred Park, Chalmers Street, Surry Hills. To stay up-to-date with any further cancellations, head to the event's Instagram page.
