After delighting us with their Winter Night Market, and their European bazaar, Queen Vic Market is getting us ready for summertime. And what better way to do that, than with their iconic Summer Night Market? Expect long evenings of market browsing, cocktail sipping, street eats and more. This season, there’s over 125 stalls, shops and bars to check out. It starts on Wednesday November 23, and will continue on until March 15, 2023. We’ll see you there.
Summer Night Market
This month, the market will transform into a vibrant and buzzing space on Wednesday nights. Expect a weekly line-up of live music from local performers, DJs to keep the party vibes going, as well as roving entertainment. Get your Christmas shopping done, and discover some unique gifts from local artisans. Find everything from custom artwork to bespoke homewares. Most importantly, there will also be a wide range of delicious street food for you to sink your teeth into.
Mr. Miyagi will make their Summer Night Market debut, serving up street tacos with flavours like Peking duck, soft shell crab and salmon nori. Ripe Cheese will also make their debut at the market, offering up a delicious flambéed Milawa camembert, topped with biscotti crumble, spiced baby figs and drizzled with brandy. In another first for the market, Mr. Yes and Mr. No will serve up hummus bowls, with tasty options like Moroccan carrot, yoghurt chicken and Bukharan eggplant.
Other tasty bites include loukoumades, lobster rolls, Portuguese tarts and traditional jerk chicken.
Stay cool on those balmy summer nights with a refreshing drink. Grab a fruity cocktail from Antagonist Spirits, or try a selection of amber nectars from resident brewers Brick Lane. There will also be bars serving up mojitos, sangria and the season’s signature drink, a refreshing watermelon daiquiri slushie. Meanwhile, Brick Lane Caravan will have four beers on tap, Coldstream Brewery will serve up apple cider and non-alcoholic mocktails, and ReWine will have a selection of wines for you to sip on.
The market will run every Wednesday, except for December 21 and 28. It will start at 5pm and end at 10pm.
There’s no entry fee involved, so just rock up hungry and ready for a good time.
