Queen Victoria Winter Night Market Melbourne
Laura Pohlenz | On 23, Jun 2015
A Melbourne winter can be confusing. Rain, hail or shine, the Queen Victoria Winter Night Market has got it down pat. All about celebrating some of Melbourneâ€™s most talented artists and performers as well as Melbourneâ€™s diverse and delicious tastes, the winter market is the place to be Wednesday evenings.
2015 sees the Winter Night Market return for its fourth year and itâ€™s bigger and better than ever. Set in the midst of Melbourneâ€™s busy city, the market is the perfect place for a mid-week break or a catch up with friends.
The winter market has a wide selection of small bites, main meals and sweet treats from all around the world â€“ from the ever-popular German bretzel to spicy fresh mussels to hot pizzas by world-famous 400 Gradi. Lines arenâ€™t an issue â€“ venders prepare and serve food efficiently, minimizing the long lines often associated with night markets. Prices are reasonable and range from around $7-$16 for a main meal.
But thereâ€™s more than just food. The night market is a unique shopping experience filled with hand crafted, eclectic jewelry, knitwear, homewares, candles, artworks and gifts. If youâ€™re wanting some time off your feet, grab a piping hot apple cider and chill out at the Night Market cinema which screens short films all evening.
And if all of this is still not enough to keep you entertained, why not join in the silent disco conga line?
With plenty of space to relax, eat and drink, the market is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day at the office or to finish off a shopping day in the city.
