Trucking great news for Melbourne

23rd November 2020 | Eativity editors

Wednesday nights in Melbourne can come to life once again, with Queen Victoria Market announcing its first outdoor night-time activation since March. The Festive Food Truck Stop at Queen Vic Market will bring together a collection of Melbourne’s favourite food trucks with delicious street food from across the globe.

Over four weeks, visitors will be able to satisfy street food cravings and rediscover their palates; indulging in everything from bao buns, burgers and tacos to mac and cheese croquettes, smoked barbecued meats, mango lassis and much more.

For those looking to feed their wanderlust, the Truck Stop will provide visitors with an opportunity to travel the world, one truck at a time. The line-up of food trucks taking over the market’s Queen Street includes some of the city’s best vendors, from authentic Jamaican cuisine by a Caribbean boss man to handmade gnocchi by an Italian chef.

East meets West with Gorilla Grill’s droolworthy street eats.
