A Taste of Asia at the Footscray Night Market
In the Summer months Footscray Market comes alive at night.
In this tour the emphasis is on the Asian influence in our food. Chinese migrants have been arriving in Melbourne since the gold rush of the 1850s, newcomers from Thailand since 1951, the Vietnamese since 1976 and many people from India have migrated since 1980. All of these groups make up a big part of Melbourne's growing population and have contributed to our reputation as Australia's Foodie capital. We will immerse ourselves with sweet and spicy dishes from these cultures. During the tour we will be entertained with Bollywood beats and Chinese Lion dances.
Come along on a hot summer night to Footscray and take in the view of the city skyline while inspecting the Asian foods.
