A Food Truck Fiesta Is Coming To Melbourne’s Queen Vic Markets After 8 Long Months

Food always tastes better when it’s coming to you from a small food truck. I couldn’t tell you why, it’s just ~science~. I’m just guessing, but I’d say it probably tastes twice as good when you’re having it for the first time since a very long lockdown.

Melbourne, you’ll have to get back to me on that one after you hit up Queen Victoria Market‘s four week-long food truck soiree, Festive Food Truck Stop.

It’s been eight long months since the city’s most famous markets held one of their beloved parties, with Covid putting a pause on their usual line up of night markets and food festivals. Well, she’s back baby.

Every Wednesday night — between 5 and 10pm — from November 25 until December 16, you can check out a rotation of Melbourne’s Favourite food trucks. Included in that line up is the likes of  Two Fat Indians with their goat curry and smashed samosas, Jamaican jerk chicken from The Real Jerk, Nem N’ Nem Viet and Bigger Than Texas BBQ wings and short ribs.

Sure, you still can’t travel internationally, but at least your tastebuds can.

You’ll be able to wash it all down in The Beer Garden, with an all-Victorian booze menu. Think Melbourne Gin Company cocktails, beers from Brick Lane Brewing, Coldstream ciders and wine from Mitchelton Wines.

You can check out the full line-up and other details on the Queen Victoria Market website. Entry is free, but obviously save your moolah so you can stuff your face. You’ve earned it.

Feels a little like normality, to me.
