C&G's Guide to Melbourne's Winter Markets

Melbourne’s market scene is as unique as the city itself, showcasing everything from its diverse food scene to artisanal makers and everything in between. In this C&G blog, we unpack the best market offerings, taking you through from morning coffee to an after-dark cup of mulled wine.

Winter Night Market

Held every Wednesday night in Winter at the Queen Victoria Market, this iconic evening is packed to the brim with amazing street food and warming mulled wine to engage your taste buds and delight your senses. The market takes on a distinctly Christmas theme this July, transforming into a winter wonderland with a real snow machine and a mini forest of Christmas trees resplendent with beautiful decorations. Kids can enjoy the free arts and crafts and sing along to the joyous sounds of the carollers as they perform the best loved Christmas hits.
