Batman Market is a regular outdoor market and food truck park in Coburg and it’s got a wonderful community feel that’s at once cool and family-friendly.

We spend about 1 hour at Batman Market as many of the food vendors aren’t really open at 4:30pm when we arrive and the jumping castle is still being blown up. By 5pm it’s action stations! If you have kids it pays to go early to snap up a parking spot and eat quickly before the queues start.

Batman Market is a hit with Lady AB and Baby 2.0. It’s an easy Saturday night out with food, fun and great music in a relaxed atmosphere.
