There’s nothing quite like wandering around a big outdoor market surrounded by street performances, stalls and delicious, tempting aromas. Every Friday night until the 26th of April, Perth hosts its Twilight Hawker Markets. The Twilight Hawker Markets will give you the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the gorgeous, warm Perth evenings and stroll through rows of market stalls offering cuisine from all around the world. You can also have a taste of Perth city living (excuse the pun) as you join both locals and visitors alike in this exciting weekly event.
The Twilight Hawker Markets offer a vibrant, lively atmosphere and a chance to sample foods from places like Spain, Turkey, Morocco, Indonesia, the United States, France and Japan. The stalls, all set up in street vendor style, all cook their food right before your eyes ensuring you’ll be eating fresh and delicious meals and snacks hot off the pan.
Some of these great stalls include:
- Delicious Bites – a stall selling Asian desserts such as kuehs
- Fumi’s Japanese Pancakes and Noodles – a stall selling, you guessed it, Japanese pancakes and noodles
- Butty’s American Style – for delicious burgers, ribs and fries
- Maison St Honore – for exquisite macarons
Other food includes crepes, empanadas and burritos, gozlemes, boreks, koftas, bratwurst and hot donuts. Make sure you come hungry! In addition to the multitude of street vendor style stalls, there’s also a range of entertainment adding to the ambience. There’s live music and other forms of entertainment to entertain while you eat and explore. There are tables and chairs set up so you can take back your stash to a table and sit down and people watch and enjoy the entertainment while you devour your food.
The Twilight Hawker Markets are held in Forrest Place, Perth City. This is right in the middle of Perth so if you’re arriving in Perth on a Friday evening you can drive straight to the markets from the Hertz Car Rental Perth Airport. Or, if you’re already in the city you can walk from your accommodation, or take public transport, and leave your hire car behind. The Twilight Hawker Markets run from 5pm until 8pm and are the perfect place to start an evening or finish the day.
