The Queen Victoria Night Market
Time Out says
Melbourne's iconic Queen Vic Market opens its doors after dark for a bustling bazaar of food, drink, live entertainment and more
NOTE: The Queen Vic Night Market has been postponed due to Melbourne's latest lockdown. We will update you as soon as possible with new dates.
Spend your Wednesday nights surrounded by food at the Queen Victoria Market's legendary Night Market.
The Queen Victoria Winter Night Market returns this June with six weeks of after dark food stalls, festival bars, as well as dozens of fashion, homewares and general knick-knack merchandise traders to browse alongside a rotating line-up of musicians and entertainment.
The full list of food traders is yet to be announced, but the market has hinted that guests will be able to feast on everything from smoky barbecue and cheesy pastas, to warming curries, dumplings and of course plenty of desserts. You'll also be able to grab a tipple, with craft beers, mulled wine and cocktails available, which you can enjoy by a nice and toasty fire pit.
During the deepest days of winter, the night market will also be celebrating Christmas in July. Expect a wintery wonderland complete with illuminated Christmas trees, snow, eggnog and carollers.
Right in the heart of the city, the markets make a great dinner stop for anyone coming from work, or tourists looking to experience the famous markets after dark. The markets have a reputation for multiculturalism so no matter what cuisine you fancy, you're likely to find something that sets your mouth watering.
The Queen Victoria Winter Night Market is on every Wednesday from June 2 to August 25. Entry is free.
