Summer Heats Up With Queen Victoria Market Night Market, Melbourne

After a two-year hiatus, The Queen Victoria Night Market is back and ready to make this summer the most epic one yet!

Enjoy the well-loved and greatly missed street food, refreshing cocktails, great shopping and live music every Wednesday night from 5 January to 6 April 2022 (except 26 January 2022).

Every year it gets more and more popular so if you're going with kids my big tip is to get there early at 5 pm (or even 4:45 pm!) to take advantage of easier parking, shorter lines and more seating.

The markets span over several sheds with over sixty street food vendors, over 100 art, craft and design stalls plus a weekly calendar of live entertainment.

During this time, night Market-goers will be able to once again satisfy their cravings by indulging the food and drinks prepared by returning food trucks and stalls like The Cypriot Kitchen, Bigger than Texas, Frencheese, Taki’s Balls, Coconut Hub, Antagonist Spirits, and much more!

The Queen Victoria Night Market is a fun way to break up your weekday routine and it's an easy place to take the family out as there's something for everyone in terms of eats.

For the night market this year, check out the designated ‘Spirit Zone' space where some of Melbourne’s leading clairvoyants, fortune tellers and psychics can tell you about what 2022 has in store for you.

On the other hand, if you're a book or music lover, you must visit the ‘Book Nook' where you'll be able to explore new and pre-loved titles, browse second-hand records and mix and mingle with a variety of Victorian-based authors.

The Summer nights are back and after a challenging two years, you truly deserve a relaxing night out at this open-air outdoor summer market.

HOT Tips:

  • get there as close to 5pm (or even 4:45pm) as you can as it gets busier and the lines longer. Peak hour is 7pm;
  • if you go early it’s relatively easy to find street parking close to the market at that time if you’re coming by car;
  • $10 parking from 4:30pm-11pm in market car park;
  • take a tram up Elizabeth St for the easiest access via PT;
  • the main market is not open; and
  • bring cash as not all vendors accept cards. There are a few ATMs by Therry Street/toilet blocks but with long queues.
