The black winter truffle season is officially here, and customers can celebrate all things truffle at Queen Vic Market (K-L Sheds, Peel Street end) on Saturday 19 (9am-5pm) and Sunday 20 (9am-4pm) June 2021. The Truffle Melbourne pop-up stall has just launched in the Market's I Shed in time for the much anticipated Truffle Melbourne Festival. The Pop-Up (Shed I, Stall 86) will be open till the end of August 2021 during market operating hours. Whether you're a truffle tragic or simply curious, there's something for everyone.
A short walk from the City centre, Queen Victoria Market is bounded by Peel, Franklin, Victoria & Elizabeth Streets. It's where you'll be heading to taste the best (and most affordable) truffle dishes and more, or pick up some fresh truffle from one of the five growers from across the country.
Live truffle demonstrations also abound across the weekend, featuring some of Melbourne's best chefs sharing their truffle secrets. Expect to find Guy Grossi (Grossi Florentino); Rob Kabboord (Chancery Lane Bistro); Elbert Chang (Pinchy's) and Angus Cadden (Park Street Pasta & Wine). Australia's favourite truffle dogs will also be back, showing off their truffle hunting skills across both days, and the Truffle Melbourne Bar will offer exotic truffle cocktails, beers and ciders to wash down while listening to some great DJ tunes.
For your shopping pleasure, there's a great range of fresh truffle products including sauces, honey, oils, salts and so much more, from across Australia and Europe. Customers can also take part in a Queen Vic Market Ultimate Truffle Tour on 19 June. Bookings can be made online.
