Carriageworks Announces 2019 Summer Night Market

Drink, Eat, Sydney / 12 December 2018

Carriageworks Summer Night Market is back in 2019, with 60+ top chefs there to tantalise your taste buds.

It’s an industrial space that certainly doesn’t shy away from the market scene, with Carriageworks hosting produce-driven events weekly. To celebrate the start of 2019, they have now proudly announced the newest Summer Night Market, with restauranteur and pioneer of distinct Cantonese-Australian cuisine Kylie Kwong at the helm.

Kicking off on Friday 15th February from 5pm, the event is designed to showcase creative responses to themes presented by renowned American artist Nick Cave’s installation UNTIL, Carriageworks’ largest installation to date.

With live music, DJs and cooking demonstrations on the cards, head along for an evening inspired by diverse global communities and story-telling.

Attica’s very own Ben Shewry will demonstrate how to cook native Australian seafood on a fire made by founder and managing director of Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness, Dwayne Banon- Harrison. Together they will conduct a demonstration of traditional fire making and speak of the theme of fire from both perspectives.

Another special feature of the Night market program includes Danish chef Rene Redzepi’s non-profit organisation, MAD, a global cooking community with a social conscience. MAD Mondays Sydney, represented by Bella Napier and Caroline Baum, will also speak about the theme, alongside Jon Owen CEO of the Wayside Chapel and Wayside’s Bondi Heart Cafe.

Not only that, but female chefs and bakers from Four Brave Women will share their personal stories and food samples from Iranian, Ukrainian, Russian, Iraqi and Syrian cuisines.

Adding to the impressive restaurant line up, you can expect the likes of plantbased, vegan restaurants Alibi and Paperbark; new restaurants Bert’s Bar and Brasserie and Don’t Tell Aunty; Fish Butchery, David Thompson’s Long Chim, The Rockpool Group’s Bar Patron, Rockpool Bar and Grill and Rosetta; and Chase Kojima’s restaurant Sokyo.

Gospel-inspired acapella singing group Café of the Gate of Salvation will surround the Night Market with the joyful soulful sounds of African-American music, while Matavai Pacific Cultural Arts will showcase dance and music from Maori and Pacific Islander traditions, and local FBi Radio’s Music Director, Amelia Jenner will play an eclectic mix of international beats.

To keep you refreshed throughout the evening, you’ll also find an array of enticing beverage options. Think vinos from Byron Bay natural wine company Jilly Wines, Potts Point wine bar Dear Sainte Èloise, Brent Savage’s Monopole and more. You can also expect local brewers The Grifter Brewing Co. and Young Henrys, plus distillers Archie Rose.
