The Night Food Markets are growing again post covid lockdowns. So please get in quick if you are thinking of attending.
We will expand the offering to cater for as many people as we can - however we are limited by space and the need to ensure those vendors who do attend have an opportunity to return a healthy profit on the night.
Therefore, we will be limiting the number of offerings in each category to 2-3 depending on the category. So please get in quick.
We will be asking all traders to pay online in our Night Food Markets payment portal prior to the event.
You will receive a receipt of payment via email that you should take on the night in case you wish to verify your payment.
This will avoid the need to pay on the night - and allow you to focus on your success at the markets.
Generally, the spaces are 3m x 3m however you will get eth space that you need within reasonable bounds to move around your struck or stall, and to have a queue out front.
The earlier you book the more chance you will have of securing your preferred space.
We will allocate a space to you well prior to the night and make every effort to give you one that you prefer.
If you have any problems on the night, then please see the staff on-site in the Market Office in Building D.
Please be aware of other traders and understand that all spaces at the Night Food Markets are effective.
Yes. You can book two spaces either together or apart. If you are hoping to have them together, then given potential space restrictions on the night, it is best if you book as soon as possible.
Parking at Flemington is free.
Food trucks will park in situ.
Other vendors will park either behind their stand pending their location,m or move their vehicles up into the car park levels well prior to the event opening to the public.
See our representatives on the night should you have any questions at that time.
We supply power on the night via a generator. However, this has a limited capacity so it is allocated on a first-in-first-served basis.
We are very pleased to confirm that the Automotive Dimensions Feast & The Furious car show will be held on the night.
This show brings a massive hungry crowd that wants to be fed on the night - and often with friends who want to shop as well.
