Madame Brussels Lane lights up as The European Night Market returns.
Whether its melted raclette, a cup of hot spiced rum, Nutella crepes, or incredible live music performances, you will be spoilt for choice this July when TheEuropean Night Marketreturns every Friday from 5pm until 9pm, running for the entire month long.
Paying homage to the winter markets synonymous with European towns in Germany, France, Spain and Italy, the European Night Market will transform Madame Brussels Lane into a heaving culinary hub complete with cauldrons of mulled wine and piping cups of hot spiced rum.
Expect to be transported to the finest European hotspots a stop in Italy with Nutella stuffed doughnuts, arancini balls and authentic pasta from Caf Babbo, as well as crisp pastries from Eat Cannoli. French classics will be served up by Pop Up Crepe alongside a plethora of sweet macarons from Degani (think Nutella roch, or white chocolate to name a few), while Frencheese will serve bowls of oozing, melted raclette. Expect juicy German sausages from Bavarian Bangers, and salty hand rolled Bavarian pretzels from Bretzel Biz.
If theres one thing predicted to get city workers clocking out at 5pm, its the smell of Elenas Paella wafting down the laneway, along with an array of Turkish dips and gzleme from Gz City and Chooh La Las hot candied (and vegan) nuts. This year also sees the addition of Richmond Hill Caf & Larder whose fromagerie will be selling French onion soup and cheese boards to take home.
In addition to live musical entertainment, the laneways own Cobbler DJ (from The Cobblers Last) will be spinning decks and shining shoes late into the night. Visitors can also enjoy tastings from a soon-to-be to be announced local distillery, discounted cuts from the Mens Barber Shop and update their winter wardrobe with scarves, beanies and gloves from Melbourne retailer Spoilt.
