Europa Night Market: A Taste of Europe in Melbourne

Europa Night Market: A Taste of Europe in Melbourne
Can’t get to Europe this year? Visit the Europa Night Market at Queen Vic Market instead!

Thanks to the Europa Night Market, the iconic sheds at Melbourne’s Queen Vic Market have been transforming into a European escape every Wednesday since September 21. Experience Europe right here in Melbourne – no $2,000 airfare required! 

But don’t fret if you haven’t had a chance to make it to Queen Vic yet – it’s running until October 26, so there’s still plenty of time to get your fix. 

The Europa Night Market promises to deliver classic street eats from the Iberian Peninsula, the Mediterranean, Western Europe, and beyond. Think scrumptious arancini, hearty cheese-based dishes, fried seafood, and sweet treats like soufflé and crannoli (a croissant/cannoli hybrid). Delicious!

Here are just a few of the stalls making our mouths water:
