The euphoric screams of rollercoastering teens sink into the background, as an overpowering chorus of tribal drums pulses into the twilight. The grassy knoll opposite the drummers is dotted with people soaking in the warm night, eating, drinking, talking, listening. The smells from various stalls – French, Argentinian, Italian, Turkish – waft along the pavement, and beckon passers-by into O’Donnell Gardens. The St Kilda Twilight Market is in full swing.
Running every Thursday until the end of February (excluding the week of Christmas and the first week of February), the St Kilda Twilight Market is nestled between Luna Park and Acland Street.
The market draws in many current favourites on the ‘market loop’, including Hoy Pinoy with their Filipino street food, Senor BBQ’s Argentinian grill, clothes from Winkie and Fashion Eye Boutique, tarot card readings and a host of other stalls selling jewellery, plants, lights and everything in between.
On these balmy summer Thursdays, the market will be pumping from 5pm. Whether it’s after a day on the beach or a day in the office, there’s bound to be some space under the palm trees.
