More than 25 established and up and coming street food truck vendors will be coming together every Saturday night at the new Paddy’s Night Food Markets, to give devoted foodies an indulgent street food experience, in a unique concrete playground.
Food trucks worth the chase will be parked and open for business in the Sydney Markets Flemington car park. The unusual venue with ceilings seven metres high, transforms into a buzzing urban eatery complete with crates for tables, that delights visitors with its authentic and original street feel.
The colourful lineup of kitchens on wheels will serve up an eclectic mix of delicious food such as gelato brioche, soda served in colourful lightbulbs and chocolate gozleme. Well known and much-loved traders such as ChurBurger and Kayter Co are just two of the regulars that will be serving indulgent food in plus sizes for small prices.
The latest in street food concepts including Maverick Wings and Dirty Bird will also be represented, with new chefs waiting to delight event goers enough to become the next big name in foodie circles. Chefs new and long-standing will all be challenged to deliver regular, creative menu changes to reflect monthly themes.
If indulgent, great value food in a cool urban setting isn’t enough, event goers can buckle down to a Daytona challenge or PAC-MAN battle against friends. Retro arcade games are free, and open to all to enjoy. As is the music provided by resident DJ Mike Hyper and other special guests.
Brad Latham, Sydney Markets Limited, CEO said, “Sydney Markets is pleased to announce the addition of Paddy’s Night Food Markets to our portfolio. The Paddy’s Night Food Markets evolves the Paddy’s brand by harnessing the capability that food trucks have in bringing together local foodies. We anticipate that the weekly event will be supported by the local community, young families and street food aficionados. It not only offers a unique space that compliments experienced vendors but provides a platform for rising street food start-ups to launch and showcase their product offerings.”
William Lovehill, Owner of the legendary food truck Chur Burger, said, “Paddy’s Night Food Markets has created a vibe that no one else can replicate and a space that I’ve never seen before. The size and set up of the carpark has made it surprisingly intimate for such a huge space and is the perfect place for food trucks to trade. The free arcade and music really adds to the ambiance and gives this whole eatery a cool, modern edge. We bring the great street food, but these guys have definitely created an unmissable foodie destination”.
