Twilight & Night Markets in Melbourne
St Kilda Beach Night Market
During the summer months you can find night markets and twilight
markets around Melbourne and Victoria. Possibly the best known are the
Gaslight Markets at the Victoria Market and the St Kilda Beach Market.
However beachside towns often delay their summer markets to the cool of the
evening. Below is a selection of these markets.
South Melbourne Night Market
The South Melbourne Night Market continues to grow each year with even
more road lanes blocked to help the party atmosphere. There is an emphasis
on food, free music (with 2 stages) and a variety of stalls. White
Hat suggests that those interested in checking out young, local
independent clothing designers will find plenty to interest them. Full
details, along with band details, can be found at

European Night Market - Madame Brussels Lane
White Hat suggests you rug up and wander around for a night filled with rich
aromas of European fare and a quirky selection of stalls.
There will be mulled wine with a special feature of warm butter rum
and an atmosphere reminiscent of the classic Christmas night
markets in Manchester (UK) and much loved in countries such as Austria, Germany
and Switzerland. More information at

A popular night market with a range of freshly prepared foods to choose
from, variety stalls to browse and wandering entertainers to enjoy. It also
