Eat, Melbourne, Play / 18 September 2023

Head Downtown For The Dumpling Market

It’s official. This spring, Melbourne is getting a hot new food event. Get ready for Downtown Dumpling Market to turn Birrarung Marr into a vibrant hawker centre. The open-air market kicks off in November and runs for 18 flavour-packed nights.

What’s Cooking?

It’s all about dumplings here, but there’s more. Expect skewers, salads, and bao that won’t disappoint. Craving noodles? They’ve got you covered. With a variety of tastes and dietary options, this market aims to please everyone.

Sip and Mingle

As you wander and munch, why not enjoy a drink? The market features bars mixing cool cocktails and even boasts a dedicated sake bar. It’s the perfect spot for after-work catch-ups, late-night snacks or easy-going weekend fun.

Your Four-Legged Friends are Invited

Good news for dog owners. Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome to join the food fest. So, bring your pooch along and make it a day out for the entire family.

The Makers Behind The Market

This exciting event comes from the same team that brought us Adelaide’s iconic Gluttony and Lucky Dumpling Market. Program director Elena Kirschbaum and her team are eager to offer Melbourne a fresh food experience.

Get Ready for Local Favourites

Local and interstate vendors are set to impress. Melbourne’s own much-loved brands will join the fun, but keep an eye out for the full list of vendors, coming soon.

When and Where

The market opens its gates on November 9 and runs until the 26th. Weekdays, it’s open from 4.30pm, and weekends from noon. Best part? No entry fee and no need to book.

So, mark the dates. Downtown Dumpling Market is poised to become a springtime staple for foodies across the city.
