The Suzuki Night Market is back!

    The Suzuki Night Market returns for its biggest season yet this Wednesday night and with even more reason to celebrate after a second successive win in the annual RACV Victorian Tourism Awards.

    The Melbourne summer tradition took out top honours in the Festival / Events category and will go on to represent the state at the nationals early next year.

    The Suzuki Night Market – located at the heritage-listed Queen Victoria Market site – is the original and largest open air night market in the southern hemisphere and continuously attracts over 25,000 patrons every single week with its unique mix of world foods, music and wares.

    Now in its 14thseason, it has grown to become one of the premier seasonal events in Melbourne with the ultimate carnival-like atmosphere offering a vastly different feel to the traditional day market experience.

    It is held every Wednesday night over the summer months and such is the popularity of the event that this season its borders have expanded with over 200 stall holders showcasing everything from hawker-style world foods, bars, live bands, busker style entertainment, wine tastings and of course local artisans and designers.

    To celebrate its return, Suzuki is offering visitors the chance to win a brand new Suzuki Alto in its ‘What Drives You This Summer?’ campaign.

    To enter simply tell us in 25 words or less ‘What Drives You This Summer?’ to be in the draw to win the funky city car.

    Plus just by entering the draw there’s also the chance to score one of fifteen $50 Suzuki Night Market vouchers in the random weekly draw. Summer social calendar sorted!

    So whether it’s a night out with the work mates or a catch up with friends, the Suzuki Night Market is the perfect excuse to spend your balmy summer evenings in Melbourne.

    10 reasons to visit the Suzuki Night Market

     

    1. It’s a Melbourne summer tradition loved by locals and tourists – just ask the 425,000 people who attended last season

    2. We’ve made it bigger! That’s more dancing space, more eating space and more shopping space

    3. Get your Christmas shopping done in one night – not your lunch break nor on your weekend, in one night…a weeknight

    4. Celebrate hump day every week during summer. It’s like a really cool Groundhog Day

    5. The Suzuki Night Market Season runs for 15 weeks – including Australia Day Eve. That’s 15 chances to get a table before anyone else, 15 chances to pick up something cool and 15 chances to take a culinary trip around the world.

    6. Support local music and see some amazing Melbourne bands.

    7. Hang out with your work friends – just promise not to talk about work

    8. Shop Melbourne. The Suzuki Night Market is a stomping ground for local designers and artisans. Lower your carbon footprint by buying locally. That’s less fashion (and food) miles for you to calculate

    9. Five fully-licenced bars to refuel as you meander your way through the plethora of stalls

    10. Just chill out – It’s summer, it’s Wednesday….why would you do anything else?
