Summer nights at the Queen Vic night marketPosted by: Scott Ko
The original Melbourne Night Market has returned following a well deserved break. The season has extended to March 26, meaning 4 extra weeks to delight in sangria, vintage shopping and street-food. There are over 60 food stalls selling a host of cuisines ranging from Pierogi dumplings, Waffles, Kimchi Fries to Mexican quesadillas. Special mention to Hammer & Tong (http://www.hammerandtong.com.au/) boys for serving their mouth-watering soft shell crab burger and popular Malaysian restaurant Mamak ( http://www.mamak.com.au/ ) for opening a stall.
I won’t refrain from lying, the crowds are big, but it is quite insignificant compared to the Night Noodle Markets held in 2013. The lines move quickly, having never been subjected to more than a 15 minute wait to get my goodies. Plus – bonus incentive, once you finish stuffing yourself, you can freely burn those calories by perusing the vintage clothing stores, accessories, artisan craft, and wine bars, all while listening to live music.
Rain, hail or shine the market is situated under a giant rooftop, so come along with your buddies and add some buzz to your summer evenings. The Queen Victoria Night Market is on every Wednesday night until March 26, 5pm – 10pm.
