The Winter Night Market is back!

The Winter Night Market is back!
Jack Hayes

Grab your scarf, beanie, gloves and get ready to warm yourselves as the Queen Victoria Market’s famous Winter Night Market returns after a three-year hiatus.

Running every Wednesday for 14 weeks, from June 1 to August 31, locals will reacquaint themselves with Melbourne’s best street food traders, brewers, distillers and artisans for the perfect midweek winter experience.

Night Market-goers will be able to wander the Queen Victoria Market’s iconic open-air sheds and laneways to enjoy a smorgasbord of street food specialties like spicy dumplings, cheesy pasta, smoked meats and decadent desserts while sipping on hot gin toddies, warming spiced cider and mulled wine.

Adding to the culinary wonderment will be a rotating lineup of homegrown talent playing live on the market’s main stage while roving performers keep visitors entertained.

Explore the Night Market’s unique stalls selling locally-sourced and handmade products including jewellery, art, skincare, books and homewares before settling in beside one of the many roaring open fires.

For those looking for some festive cheer in the heart of winter, the Night Market will embrace the festive spirit to celebrate Christmas in July with (presumably) fake snow, Christmas trees, decorations and more.

The full list of traders will be released during May. The Winter Night Market will run from 5pm to 10pm •
