Melbourne’s diverse community is truly on show with the versatile dishes served up by the street food vendors. Run by Moreland City Council, over 30 food vendors including Cypriot Kitchen, Bun Cornidios and Perla Tacos, Indigenous Street Feast and Babaji’s Kitchen will be dishing up delicious street food at the weekly night market. There will be vegan, vegetarian and halal-friendly options available too. Much like the food available, music and entertainment have also been sourced from Melbourne's global communities. Each Friday, the night market will present a different style and sound, from 1950s harmonies by local band Bobby and the Pins, Latin beats from Mariachi Los Romanticos, and roaming bands like Uptown Brown and The Whoopee Project, and Cyclo Illuminato. The market has been scheduled before Christmas, giving shoppers a great chance to pick up some artisanal gifts.
Make the most of balmy summer nights and the silly season at The Merrywell with six days of brand new happy hours. Merry Hours will see great value burgers, oysters, beers and sparkling wine, with different specials going down all week.
