Food Events Perth is about the new Perth. Food Trucks and Street Food are rife these days. There are new Food Markets and Food Vendors appearing almost daily in Western Australia. People can’t seem to get enough of these events. But these reviews are to allow you to gain perspective of which are The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Or, worse, the nondescript.
Just a hint, we haven’t come across many bad or ugly Markets. There seems to be good food wherever you choose to go.
Mt Hawthorn Streets & Lanes Festival 2017, 7th May, Scarborough Beach Road and Oxford Street, Mount Hawthorn
Life Is A Cabaret … There was definitely a different vibe to this year’s event. Mt Hawthorn Streets & Lanes Festival has also grown since last year with Stalls extending into Oxford Street. And, a mini fun fair with rides at the edge of Axford Park.
Bayswater Streats, Crimea Street Reserve, Morley – Thursday Nights 5.00pm to 8.30pm.
Night Food Market on Crimea Reserve … The City of Bayswater Streats is working towards bringing multi cultural cuisine to local residents. They have achieved a lot in the short time they’ve been running. Thursday Nights at the Crimea Reserve see five or so Food Trucks assemble and attract large crowds of locals.
Maylands Street Festival 2016, Sunday 1st May 2016, Whatley Crescent and Eighth Avenue, Maylands, Noon to 7.00pm.
A Flying Visit … Decided to put up a brief review of the Maylands Street Festival 2016. We had arrived late to the party but it was still in full swing at 5.00pm. There was food, entertainment and activities on offer on both sides of the Railway Tracks.
Mount Hawthorn Streets Laneways Festival 2016, Scarborough Beach Road (From Hobart to Matlock Street), Mount Hawthorn WA 6016.
La Dolce Vita … The Italian Community of Mount Hawthorn embraced this Festival big time. Bringing a sense of their presence and long history in the suburb. And, of course, celebrating their food, wine and coffee.
Taste of Perth 2016, Langley Park, Perth WA 6000, Phone 9332 9000.
Don’t Rain on My Parade … Taste of Perth is one of those foodie events that remains calm and opens Rain, Hail or Shine. It worked for me, as staff seemed to be two steps ahead of the weather at all times. Umbrellas went up over tables in the blink of an eye and the rains came, oh, ten minutes later.
Maylands Markets, The Rise, 28 Eighth Avenue, Maylands WA 6051.
The Original Family Food Market … Maylands Markets was amongst the first dedicated food markets to spring up. The Market is family and pet friendly. There are free activities for children, like face painting and mega bubbles. A lot of thought has gone into this event. Rest assured the adults aren’t forgotten.
Twilight Hawkers Market, Forrest Place, Perth WA 6000 – Friday Nights 4.30pm to 9.30pm – October 2015 through April 2016 Season.
Foodie Nirvana … The Twilight Hawkers Market in the City was the first market to catch my attention. I remember thinking that this was a huge thing. A collection of Food Trucks, Vans and Market Stalls all selling Street Food. Had I died and reached Nirvana? Well, not quite but almost.
