The Night Market is set to open again on Thurs 10 Jan, with an impressive smorgasbord of street food and market stalls, as well as live music on Cecil and Coventry Streets.
People come from all over to experience the Market at twilight, with delicious food and festival vibes attracting locals as well as interstate and international tourists. Wander along the street, take your pick of tasty world-class fare from restaurants, bars and food trucks, while appreciating live music on two different stages.
Enjoy the balmy summer city nights with a crispy fish salad or some wonton tacos from Bambu, or settle in for a cold beer and some seriously good food at Claypots Evening Star, Paco y Lola, Köy or Simply Spanish. Seafood lovers will be able to indulge in freshly shucked oysters and a variety of wines from the Aptus Oyster Bar.
A delectable and diverse array of food stalls will be joining us this year, dishing up food that Melburnians have come to know and love. Munch on some tasty chicken from C’est Chick, cool down with a Mexican ice cream from Chilbro Paletas, or line up for Smokin Barry’s slow cooked American style BBQ.
Both lanes of Cecil Street will be closed in 2019 to accommodate the growing popularity of the event. The Market-side lane of Coventry street will be closed as per previous years, and there will be a number of stalls and restaurants open inside the market also.
