Re-opening for four weeks in conjunction with the market, the historical Oddfellows Hotel will be fashioning custom-designed Mulled Wine and Hot Toddies. Being one of the oldest surviving buildings in the City of Melbourne, this is a pretty special homecoming.

Italy will be brought to life through Nutella stuffed doughnuts from Café Babbo’s, classic pastries from Eat Cannoli, crisp panzerotti from Il Panzerotto Taste of Pugila, and modern twists on the traditional desert from Tiramisu Lift Me Up.

If you’d rather opt for something light to snack on, Chooh La La’s will be on site dishing out a range of hot candied nuts. Stopping over in Poland, fan favourites Pierogi Pierogi are back with their humble Polish dumpling. Fillings include creamy potato and cheese, slow cooked organic beef, chicken and vegetable, or the vegan mushroom and sauerkraut. The Swiss are also making an appearance; first timers Swiss Made will be debuting Malakoff’s, the adored ball of fried cheese, along with sauerkraut and smoked meats.

Hella Good have the coeliacs covered with gluten free gyros and souvlaki, and an assortment of Greek sweets. Goz City will be bringing you Turkish Gözleme and dips, whilst Elena’s Paella will transport you to Spain with huge portions of the classic Spanish rice. Lastly we’re taken to Germany and Austria, with sausages covered in sauerkraut, caramelised onions and cheese from Bavarian bangers, paired perfectly with a fresh hand-rolled bretzel from Bretzel Biz.
