Feast on Victorian produce, craft beers, and wines at Malvern's food festival
East Malvern’s leafy Central Park will be packed with stalls selling Victorian gourmet produce, food trucks, craft beers and local wines at the second annual East Malvern Food and Wine Festival.
Melbourne restaurants will open pop-up stalls for the one-day festival on Sunday, November 18, and you'll be able to sample wines from wineries scattered across Victoria’s northwestern region including Turners Crossing, Red Edge, Linnaea Vineyards and more. You can also get amongst tastings from Four Pillars gin and Mr Black cold brew coffee liqueur.
Peckish? Dive into food from Richmond Oysters and Seafood Tapas, Rivera Wine Store, Nepal Dining, Assaggi Italani, 48h Pizza Gnocchi and more. You can even stock the Christmas pantry early with locally produced cheeses, gourmet condiments and Christmas puds. Entertainment comes by way of Alex Hughes Dou, Tanya George Trio and Nicky Kurta Trio.
The festival is a family-friendly event – kids can check out roving entertainers and pick up a few tricks from a visiting master magician's classes. Bring the fur kids, too – the Canine Wellness Truck will be offering healthy treats for your #cleaneating pooch.
Entry to the event is free, but wine tasting packages are available from $20.
