South Melbourne Night Market 2018

Food & Wine

What a Fabulous Season

What a summer it’s been! Were you one of the many visitors who enjoyed our Night Market this season? It was our busiest year yet – in fact, you might have noticed that after the incredible crowd numbers in the first week of January, we moved things around to make more room for some of Melbourne’s best food trucks and vendors.

Thanks to fine weather every single Thursday evening during January and February visitors were able to order and enjoy their snacks, drinks, meals and desserts al fresco, and many posted pictures of the deliciousness on Instagram (check #southmelbournenightmarket for instant food envy!).

Our summer soundtrack was courtesy of a great line-up of musicians and buskers playing everything from jazz and blues to country, while the kids’ zone gave littlies a chance to capture their evening experience via paint on paper.

And then there was the shopping! Along with some of the Market’s regular traders opening for the Night Market, we had the most casual stalls ever in January, with talented local makers selling a diverse range of creations including jewellery, dog biscuits, organic beauty products, handmade confectionery, fashion and art.

We at the Market have loved seeing all our visitors eating, drinking, browsing, chatting with friends, taking a spin on the impromptu dance floor or just enjoying the atmosphere. We hope to see you again in 2019 for more Night Market magic!
