See & Do

Night Noodle Markets, Melbourne

The Night Noodle Markets are part of Good Food Month, Australia’s largest food festival.

Over 17 summer nights, Birrarung Marr is transformed into a hawker market featuring delicious Asian food. You’ll find fare from Korea, Vietnam, China, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, India, Malaysia and Burma among the 30+ food stalls.

If you love Asian food, you can’t miss it. If you want to learn more about Asian food, there’s no better opportunity to try a variety of dishes. Go with family and friends. You can all buy different foods and share. I tasted some spicy chicken skewers and naan bread from one Indian stall, popcorn chicken from a Korean stall, a delicious spicy salad from Red Spice Road, and some sweet mini pancakes.

FareShare rescues surplus quality food from supermarkets, farmers and other businesses to create free nutritious meals for Victorian charities such as soup vans, homeless shelters, and food banks.

The Night Noodle Markets are fun and easy-going. It gets busy so if you want to beat the crowd, get there early.

The Night Noodle Markets are open every night until 30 November at Birrarung Marr near Fed Square. Entry is free and dishes are $5-$15. Find out more about Good Food Month here.
