Nothing beats the vibes and lively atmosphere of a night market, especially during balmy summer days. To make silly season extra fun, a couple of night food markets will be popping up around Sydney throughout the months of November and December. The alfresco markets promise a variety of diverse and affordable cuisines from Thai and Middle Eastern to Chinese and Turkish food. This is what you’ll want to make some space for.
