Time Out Melbourne

Warm weeknights in Melbourne are best spent shopping, eating and drinking

Queen Victoria Night Markets

It’s baa-aack! The grand old dame of night markets has returned, this time with the new BBQ Pit and Little Creatures Beer Garden. Eat your way through the food trucks and stalls, sip sangria and discover local designers. While you're at it, the market is also a prime opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done early. Melbourne.

Blender Lane Artists Market

Every Wednesday night from November to February, Blender Studios – a fertile inner-city art collective next to the Dark Horse Experiment gallery – brings together creatives and designers so shoppers can buy direct from local artists. Get to know them in advance with our top four picks of Blender LaneMelbourne.

Supper Twilight Market at the Abbotsford Convent

The Supper Market kicks off early next year. Grab a craft beer (lychee beer anyone?), peruse the arts, crafts and fashion stalls, then take your pick from the handful of food trucks and local vendors of deliciousness serving cuisines from around the world. Abbotsford.

South Melbourne Night Market

Every Thursday night for ten weeks, the South Melbourne market will be transformed into a twilight outdoor bazaar featuring the market’s favourite vendors, who will be joined by the city's most mouth-watering food carts and trucks as well as live entertainment by Melbourne’s best local acts. South Melbourne.

St Kilda Twilight Market

The annual St Kilda Twilight Market every Thursday this summer is so close to the beach and Luna Park you’ll hear screaming roller coaster patrons over the music and you’ll be at risk of getting your delicious street food dinner swiped by a seagull, but it’s all part of the experience at this summer bazaar. St Kilda.
