Brisbane’s new Summer Night Markets

Taking over The Old Museum’s beautiful heritage gardens, the Summer Night Markets are here to change the way you shop, taking everything that is fun and delicious about those Saturday morning market visits and putting it into Friday nights. Starting on November 13 (with a spooky Friday the 13th movie screening) and running until December 18, the Friday night markets will combine food, wine, beer and music for a cool feast-ive affair. Whether you’re into supporting local music acts with a pint of craft beer or sipping wine while you tuck into eats from your favourite food truck, the Summer Night Markets will be the perfect destination for those seeking something to eat or something to do. summer night markets 2Welcome the warmer weather with a Stone & Wood brew or a glass of boutique white wine from the bar and choose from one of the many food trucks and stalls who’ll be dishing up their goods.
