This spring, Sydney's Night Noodle Markets will finally make its glorious return for six nights of tasty things on sticks, bowls of noodles, all the bao you can handle and oh-so-many extravagant desserts. After a couple of disrupted years, the beloved food event will hit up Sydney from Tuesday, October 4–Sunday, October 9 at Prince Alfred Park.

With just under two months until the festival returns, the markets' lineup of food stalls and activations has been announced with some beloved names popping up on the roster. Leading the program is Filipino barbecue group and frequent Gelato Messina collaborator Hoy Pinoy, alongside Bangkok Street Food, Shallot Thai, Roll Up, Raijin, Calabang.

Messina will also be on-site serving its highly sought-after scoops, as well as Redfern favourite Donut Papi. Plus, Brendan Pang's Bumplings, May's Malaysian Hawker, Teppanyaki Noodle, Flying Noodles and Wonderbao will all be setting up stalls to deliver their signature eats to Sydneysiders.

There will also be a range of pop-up bars stationed around the markets. Dan Murphy's is bringing its short-term zero-alcohol bar concept from Melbourne to Sydney for the event; Rekorderlig will be pouring its fruity strawberry-lime, wild berry and low-sugar ciders; an Aperol Kombi bar will be making spritzes and Gage Roads Brew Co will be in attendance with a range of beers.

The Night Noodle Markets were originally set to return in March this year, but had to be postponed due to Sydney's wet weather. Autumn's loss is spring's gain, with the markets now making a comeback when the weather gets warmer — to give Sydneysiders the opportunity to get out and fill their night with Asian street food, drinks and entertainment.

Like most major events, the last two years haven't been smooth sailing for the Night Noodle Markets. In 2020, it was forced online, offering special meals from local restaurants and selections from its usual vendors via home delivery. Last year, the markets were unable to run at all, but now it's finally time to get excited again.

The 2022 Sydney Night Noodle Markets will run from Tuesday, October 4—Sunday, October 9 in Prince Alfred Park, Chalmers Street, Surry Hills. For more information, head to the event website.
