Balmy Summer Evenings filled with food and fun
With Christmas over for another year, it's now time to relax and enjoy everything that summer brings, without the stress. One of those things, is the wonderful South Melbourne Night Market that returns each Thursday from 10 January to 28 February 2019.

The Night Market attracts people from all over, including plenty of interstate and international visitors who come to enjoy the relaxed, balmy summer nights and everything that's on offer.

Head to the market from 5.30pm to 9.30pm each Thursday and watch the market come alive with an impressive array of stalls, live music, entertainment, fun and amazing food.

Great free fun for the whole family

Follow your nose (and grumbling tummy) as you take a stroll around the area, before taking your pick between one of the many top restaurants, lively bars, stalls and food trucks available.

Maybe you fancy a crispy fish salad or some wonton tacos from Bambu, or an ice cold beer and some fabulous food at Claypots Evening Star, Paco y Lola, Köy or Simply Spanish. The Aptus Oyster Bar will leave seafood lovers satisfied, with plenty of freshly shucked oysters, maybe paired with a crisp white wine.

This year, the line up of food stalls and food trucks will be dishing up plenty of favourites. Amongst others, try the tasty chicken from C'est Chick, it's tres bien, and then cool down with a Mexican ice cream from Chilbro Paletas. If American style slow cooked BBQ is your thing, you'll be licking your lips and fingers at Smokin Barry's. The hardest decision you'll need to make all evening is which one to try next.
