There’s something great about summer in Perth and no, it’s not the searing dry heat. Every Friday the city comes alive with a bustling Twilight Hawkers Market.
Dining with a Stud and I spent the day in Fremantle (more on our raw lunch to come) and when we arrived back in Perth by train it was just on 5pm which is when the market starts. Barbeques were smoking, food was sizzling and the market was jam-packed so we were lucky to get there when we did.
This food market is fab and such a great reason for locals to visit the city. There is so much food! Loads of cuisines are available including French crepes, Mexican corn and salsa, Turkish gozleme, Japanese takoyaki and Spanish paella.
We snacked on silverbeet and feta gozleme, fresh lemonade and a grilled corn with salsa and avocado. There were also a few food trucks that caught our eye, like this American diner style truck with amazingly good spicy fries with melty cheese and onion.
This donut van served hot Polish donuts – with or without jam. We couldn’t resist getting a few for a late night snack in the hotel.
Isn’t this little van the cutest! The gals inside were gorgeously frocked up in flowery 50s style dresses. I had a creamy coconut and passionfruit ice pop the following night at the Eat Drink Blog conference dinner at it was light and refreshing.
What a great way to spend a Friday night. Markets are fantastic because you can have a bit of everything. And it’s not just a one-off either – it’s on EVERY Friday night during summer. Not bad Perth, not bad at all!
