Top Twilight Highlights

The Night Market is back every Thursday night from 10 Jan – 28 Feb with a smorgasbord of street food, restaurants, bars, market stalls and live music across two stages.

Set amongst the beautiful Victorian streetscape on Cecil and Coventry streets, the Night Market is a must-do Melbourne event.

People come from near and far to experience the Market at twilight, with the delicious food and festival vibe attracting locals and tourists from interstate and abroad. We invite you stroll along the street and take your pick of world-class fare from restaurants, bars and food trucks while enjoying a laid-back summer atmosphere.

With so much on offer, we’ve selected a few highlights to help you plan out your night. Bring your friends and family and enjoy the market at twighlight.

Treat yourself to freshly shucked oysters, marinated salmon with firecracker sauce or hiramasa kingfish with orange ponzu at Aptus Oyster Bar and Grill

Savour the flavours of Japanese fusion with traditional takoyaki, or a tasty soba noodle bowl from Miso Fresh.

Chow down on a Happy Camper Pizza served out of an 1960s Airstream campervan and wash it down with a cold, crisp beer.

No summer evening is complete without a sweet treat like single origin chocolate soft serve from Atypic Chocolate, indulgent tiramisu from Tiramisu Lift Me Up in a Cup, or a cool Mexican ice cream on a stick from ChillBro Paletas.
