Melbourne's iconic Queen Vic Market opens its doors after dark for a bustling bazaar of food, drink, live entertainment and more
There is nothing that says summer quite as much as the Queen Victoria Night Market. Spend your Wednesday nights surrounded by food, drink and live music, and make the most of the night market's season.
Rows and rows of street food stalls, festival bars, as well as more than 130 art, fashion, homewares and general knick-knack merchandise traders feature alongside a rotating line-up of musicians and entertainment.
Over 60 food stalls are cooking up delicious snacks all night long, including anything from charcoal skewers, Japanese sliders, Greek doughnuts and so much more. New vendors for the 2018/19 season include Little Paris serving their French cheese and crêpes, Miso Fresh with vegan soba noodles and Japanese fried chicken, Colomiantojos with traditional Colombian arepas and empanadas, Pierogi Pierogi and their authentic Polish dumplings, and Abruzzo Lab with delicious Italian arrosticini skewers.
If you're thirsty, the Garden Bar is serving Canadian Club and Coldstream cider, Mitchelton Winery is showcasing a range of wines and their fun Prosseco spritzes, plus market faves Brick Lane Brewing Co will be pouring two new craft brews alongside the usual favourites.
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.
