The Winter Night Market Starts Next Week

Wednesdays are about to warm up at Queen Victoria Market as the Winter Night Market brings the best of winter food, design and entertainment to Melbourne every Wednesday night from 3 June – 26 August 2015.

Embrace Melbourne’s winter and warm up with crackling fires, mulled wine and a revolving line-up of roving entertainers. Melbourne’s hottest foodies, artisans and performers will once again cosy up under the historic sheds of the Vic Market for one of our favourite winter events!

Over 30 Street Food Vendors to Keep Your Bellies Warm

A sizzling menu of new vendors are on the winter bill, including Melbourne’s mushroom burger connoisseurs, Little Mushroom Co, the Texan flavours of Bluebonnet Barbecue, and the equally Southern and smoky styles of Burn City Smokers. The speed and spice of AutoRickshaw will be serving Indian street food out of an actual rickshaw and the world-famous 400 Gradi will be back with a dedicated Market pizza! And if you’re after something a little more intriguing, try the new Everybody Loves Ramen burger – a “bun” made from fried ramen noodles.

The Latest Fashions, Accessories, Gifts & More

Discover some of Melbourne’s finest makers, designers, hunters and collectors across homewares, fashion, lifestyle and kidswear. New kids on the block include imported vintage Japanese textiles from Itai Kimono, custom sterling silver and beaded jewellery from Anastasia Collection, geometrically inspired art and homewares from Drunk on Water and neckties and scarfs from Through Bambi Eyes. We’ll also see the return of Mecino‘s vintage & contemporary jewellery, custom handmade puppets from puppet-master Sonshine Puppets and wood-burner extraordinaire, Flamin’ Signs.

Introducing the Night Market Cinema

The Night Market Cinema is one of our newest and most exciting additions to the Winter Night Market, an invitation to market-goers to relax and take in a fresh selection of snack-sized short films. Each week will be programmed by a guest presenter with June featuring Blow Up Cinema, VCA Graduates, Greek Film Festivaland the Setting Sun Short Film Festival. Tune in to the weekly program updates online.

Join us for the opening night as Blow Up Cinema presents our first Night Market Cinema with Red Hot Shorts, an upbeat and very amusing collection of award-winning short films and highly creative music videos.

Where to Whet That Whistle

Those looking for a hot drink should seek out a tipple with Those Girls who will have virgin hot apple cider to go, or settle in for the night over a spiced mulled wine. Don’t forget to check in to the Little Creatures Beer Garden to survey their host of brews and chat with one of their beer experts who want to share their beer wisdom with you.

Stop by the new Cheese & Wine bar featuring some of Robert Oatley Vineyards‘ finest and top cheeses from the Market’s own Bill Tzimas, a qualified cheese grader and owner of Bill’s Farm. Wines & Cheeses will be available as pairings and on select evenings the man himself will be on hand to provide specialist cheese advice.

See You In A Week!

Along with whimsical interruptions from stilt walkers, short films and beer education, there will be plenty to make the Winter Night Market a mid-week highlight. Take a look at what else to expect this season and stay tuned for weekly updates on Facebook.
