The Queen Victoria Summer Night Markets are back

Drink, Eat, Melbourne, Play / 2 December 2019

Melbourne’s Summer Night Market delivers a cultural feast for all the senses.

The Summer Night Market is back and ready to carry you through that mid-week hump with the best street food, drinks and entertainment every Wednesday night from 5pm until 10pm.

Turning Melbourne’s Queen Vic Market into a cultural feast along with mouth-watering stalls for an actual feast, the Summer Night Market could easily become a Wednesday night ritual through the warmer months.

Many of this fine city’s most talented and creative makers and collectors have joined the line-up of Summer Night Market stalls. The result? There’s something for everyone. Earrings of every shape, size and colour for the jewellery lovers, boutique toys for children, vintage clothing galore, zany socks, candles, crystals, sunglasses — you name it. What about Mexican folk art or, say, Japanese ceramics? Yep, there are stalls for those too!

While you’re cutting laps of the market, grab a drink or two to accompany you. It’s impossible to go wrong with an ice-cold Coldstream Brewery rosé cider, or a zesty and refreshing drink from The Traditional Lemonade Stand.

The Summer Night Market is also the perfect place to be peckish. Try halloumi chips over at The Cypriot Kitchen where cheese is at the heart of everything. With a title like World’s Best Pizza, satisfaction is absolutely guaranteed with a pizza from the gang at 400 Gradi.

Hot for a sweet treat? We’ve got four words to say to that: traditional Portuguese custard tarts. Casa Nata will sort you out with the perfect crisp pastry and silky custard filling.

What else is Melbourne renowned for? Live music of course. And there’s plenty of free musical magic happening on the Summer Night Market stage to immerse yourself in. With the balmy summer evening breeze and a few bargains bagged up, having a dance is the perfect way to finish up a fun-filled evening at Queen Vic Market.

The Summer Night Market is on every Wednesday night from 5pm until 10pm, running from 20 November 2019 until 11 March 2020, excluding Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Grab your friends and family and get amongst this Melbourne market marvel.
