In 2018, the South Melbourne Night Market turns 10, and we’d love you to be part of this milestone year. Applications are now open for stallholders to take part in our Night Market, which opens for an eight-week season every Thursday evening from 4 January until 22 February 2018.
Just like the regular Market, there’s a lot to love about the Night Market. Fans come from near and far, with the delicious, well-priced food and festival vibe attracting locals alongside tourists from interstate and abroad. After all, where else in Melbourne can you saunter along the street and take your pick of world-class fare from restaurants, bars, food trucks and carts while enjoying a laid-back summer atmosphere with live music and entertainment? Al fresco dinner and drinks plus the latest local talent and crowdpleasers: it’s a much loved combination that we’re looking forward to showcasing again this year.
In between sampling street food or tucking into a hearty sit-down meal, there’s shopping aplenty. The Market’s centre aisle will be open, with several of the regular stallholders opening their doors or setting up a special stall for the evening to sell fashion, homewares, artisan goods and fresh, local produce. These include traders in the Market’s SO:ME Space – The SuperCool, The SuperCool Kid, Lost in Seasons, Spin, #Collaborate Store, Theo the Label and four pop-ups – and restaurants along Cecil Street including Simply Spanish, Paco Y Lola, Köy, Claypots Evening Star and Bambu.
Joining these regular Market traders will be stallholders offering unique wares such as handmade accessories, clothing and homewares; artisan goods; art and collectibles – some of which may even be by emerging talents who are making their public debut. If you’re looking for the next hot local label, you may just find it at the Night Market! Just like the music line-up, the mix of stalls will change every week, so it’s worth visiting several times over summer.
