Wednesday nights in summer are a buzz of food, fun and festivity at the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne. From now until March 20, the historic sheds are the place to be if you want to unwind mid-week, get a bite of street fare or just chill out on a bench.
Fancy sizzling skewers, Japanese sliders, Greek doughnuts or French crêpes? You will find these and lots more at Queen Vic. Melbourne’s original night market, back for its biggest summer yet. It lines up 60 global street food stalls and festival bars and another 100 selling speciality fashion, homeware and general merchandise.
New names for the season include Miso Fresh (modern Japanese cuisine); Colombiantojos (traditional Colombian dishes); Abruzzo Lab (Italian arrosticini skewers); Little Paris (French cheese and sweet crêpes); Pierogi Pierogi (Polish dumplings with vegetarian and vegan options) and Th e Garden Bar (featuring Canadian Club and Coldstream Cider).
Each week, bands, singers and other performers will entertain visitors as they sit down for a meal or scout for a unique item to take home. For more energetic activities, try backyard-style games such as totem tennis, Jenga and chess at the night market, a summer playground of endless fun.
