Kalamunda has welcomed the hugely popular monthly Night Markets back for the summer season!
We checked out the first night market in October, which closes down the main Haynes Street to pedestrians. Both sides of the road are lined with a mix of food trucks, hawker food stalls, as well as vintage cars and live entertainment.
Down Central walk, where the weekly farmers markets are held, you’ll find loads of arts, giftware and craft stalls too.
There’s a huge choice of cuisines from all around the world… This huge pan of sesame lamb shanks bubbling away looked and smelled absolutely mouth watering.
Here’s our pick of what we’ve tried:
Little Chef loved the Porta Pizza Meatlovers ($16), topped with ham, Italian sausage and bacon. Look out for their dessert pizza too.
I can never resist a satay and the whiff of charred meats lured me in, as well as the promise of a gluten free dinner with no hidden nasties.
There were satay sticks galore from Satay Satay. Love their meat on a stick with sticky rice and lashings of nutty satay sauce!
Little Chef was “accidentally healthy” choosing Coco Whip for his dessert. The soft serve is made from coconut milk and contains no gluten or dairy.
My parents ordered a “fat Indian” each ($10), from the friendly guys at the Bombay Knights truck. This was two veggie samosas, a chickpea mesala and chutney.
Then my Dad and I shared some lip smacking ribs n bens from the US of A at the Smokin BBQ Bus.
The big line up of trucks and vendors changes each month, some of them may include:
- Huge dishes of paella from Paitu Maca
- Freshly cooked stir fry from Pete’s Broome Noodles
- European, Middle Eastern and Asian cuisine by Empire
- Vietnamese street food from Banh Mi
- Delicious Columbian empanadas from Marcelita’s
- Italian food by The Pasta Truck
- Swirling potatoes on a stick by Stick House
- Brightly coloured Snowcones and Slushies
There’s loads of buskers around playing live music, face painting, a petting zoo and a fun Silent Disco.
We’re always really impressed with the Kalamunda Night Markets. It can get very busy and I’d recommend getting there early. Fur babies are welcome too!
