The iconic foodie event to take place next month, debuting at a new location
Sydneysiders, mark the diaries because one of the city’s most iconic foodie events is back! Announced today, the 2022 Sydney Night Noodle Markets presented by Citi will return next month for 6 nights from Tuesday 22 March to Sunday 27 March.
After a two-year hiatus, this year’s Night Noodle Markets promise to be even bigger and better as they take place at their new home: Prince Alfred Park, conveniently located next to Central Station.
Each evening, the popular park will be transformed into a vibrant, open-air Asian street food festival, with live entertainment and hawker-style stalls and pop-ups serving up their most drool-worthy dishes, drinks and bites.
From steaming hot dumplings to melt-in-your-mouth bao and Insta-worthy desserts, Sydneysiders and visitors will have the chance to feast on an array of sizzling, sweet and spicy meals and morsels from an exciting mix of popular local, national and interstate eateries. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options will also be plentiful.
Expect tasty treats from crowd-favourites Flying Noodles, Wonderbao, Gelato Messina, and Twistto to name just a few of the stallholders onboard, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
Along with live entertainment, lion dancers and a pets-welcome policy, this year’s Markets will also feature pop-ups from popular partner brands. These include Citi Central, this year open to all attendees and offering a laid-back lounge to enjoy drinks delivered directly to their table, a Gage Roads Beer Garden, an Aperol Spritz Kombi Bar, Rekorderlig Cider’s Rekorder-land, and Dan Murphy’s Zero% Bar which will be shaking fresh non-alcoholic cocktails. The Night Noodle Markets will also be serving Australia’s popular non-alcoholic beer Heaps Normal, a range of beverages from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, and Celebrity Cruises will be giving people the chance to win a luxurious Japan cruise for two.
Samantha Elliott, Head of Digital Sales and Marketing at Citi, said: “Citi customers love to eat out and it’s great to be back partnering with the Sydney Night Noodle Markets. This year ‘Citi Central’ is open to all; a seated family friendly area, where guests can order drinks and have them delivered to their table, sit back and watch the sunset. We are excited to be offering a space where family, friends, and loved ones can catch-up and reconnect.”
Thanks to an exciting new partnership with Mr Yum, the experience will be transformed this year so visitors can spend less time queuing and more time eating. Diners now have the option to simply scan a QR code to view, order and pay for items on their phone through Mr Yum, with an SMS sent when orders are ready for pick up.
Mr Yum CEO and Co-founder Kim Teo said: “The Sydney Night Noodle Markets are one of Australia’s most popular food events and Mr Yum will make the experience in 2022 even better by offering mobile ordering for drinks and food. Ordering through Mr Yum will help people spend less time in a queue and more time feasting and we can’t wait to also welcome Sydneysiders into the Mr Yum Garden on site, where they can come to hang out and enjoy their meal.”
Venessa Cowell, Head of Nine Food Events said: “We can’t wait to bring Sydney the Night Noodle Markets this March. We are back with an amazing new home at Prince Alfred Park, a fantastic line up of stallholders, and we’re helping make the experience easier through ordering with Mr Yum. It’s guaranteed to be a great night out of feasting for friends and families. Visiting just once won’t be enough!”
