The Batman Markets are ready to launch their new program, Winter Nights. Think freshly cooked street food as well as the hottest performers, artisans and artists.
Here, you will find a food lover’s paradise, licensed bar, live music venue and eclectic arts and crafts. It’s a place to catch up with friends, spend time with the family and discover another suburb of our beloved city. Winter Nights is set to bring some of Melbourne’s best characteristics together in one venue.
Winter Nights at the Batman Market – Gaffney Street, Coburg
The weekly market will run on every Saturday throughout June and July. Each Winter Nights Market hosts around 30 stall holders and street vendors, ticking off every foodie’s wish list.
How about some Turkish gozleme, with lamb or spinach and fetta? Eastern Bloc Catering’s traditional Polish pierogi with sour cream and speck are not to be missed. Poutine anyone? Le Petit Montreal has you covered, with extra gravy of course. Two Men and a Lemon serve up some lightly crumbed salt & pepper calamari and there may be “The Musselini”, Italian Mussels in a rich tomato sauce with Oakdene Pinot Noir, Istra chorizo and fresh oregano from The Love Mussel.
Carnivores feel very much at home with Street Feast’s pulled pork sliders, T Rex Bar-B-Que’s beef spare ribs or Marinade’ slow-cooked lamb. For dessert lovers, Lukumades will add their take on the traditional Greek doughnuts with delicious flavour combinations like classic honey, Nutella or vanilla ice cream with sour cherries.
Find your favourite dish and grab a seat next to the gas heaters in the Public Bar to enjoy a local Coburg Lager or wine. Or, if iconic ’60s cocktails are more your style, just order a White Russian.
It’s not all about the food though, Winter Nights will host some of Melbourne’s best local talent and there will be plenty of Latin, funk, soul and jazz tunes to keep away the winter chill.
Stalls featuring Melbourne-made candles, gifts, jewellery, crafts and fashion will be scattered throughout the venue as well. Winter Nights will be a unique event, an actual snapshot of Coburg in full swing.
