As part of Good Food Month, Sweetfest offers a two day celebration of all things sweet and sticky.

Taking place at the Meat Market, 5 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne, on the weekend of 28-29th November 2015, Sweetfest offers both a range of food stalls, and a series of masterclasses.

For a very reasonable $20, you can choose from four masterclass sessions taking place over the weekend: from 9.00am - 1.00pm, or from 2.00pm - 6.00pm each day. The $20 outlay includes a masterclass session, a glass of Redbank Emily Brut Cuvee, and the opportunity to browse and buy from the various stalls making up the sweetest market in town. Stall holders include LuxBite and Butterbing.
