Ignite your taste buds at Light Market

14 May 2018


Give your senses a full workout at Vivid Sydney at Chatswood by experiencing Light Market, a pop up international food market created from recycled materials and lit by lasers. See the dazzling installations, hear the funky beats and most of all taste and smell the tantalising food from around 20 stalls in Chatswood Mall, each one created from everything from glomesh bags to lava lamps and industrial waste, from 25 May – 16 June.

Foodies will be in heaven as they try to eat their way around the world: 

  • Zahara Grill - take an exotic trip to the Middle East
  • Sofrito Paella - escape to sunny Spain         
  • That Arancini Guy - experience Italian food that any Nona would be proud of         
  • Fritz’s Wieners - discover the taste of Germany 

Home grown favourites are also well represented as some of Sydney’s most iconic names in food roll into town: 

  • Mary’s Burgers - the original Newtown burger joint that started Sydney’s burger revolution
  • Black Star Pastry - making Sydney salivate for a decade          
  • Agape Organic - Organic Chef Simon Lawson brings his famous organic fare to the streets of Sydney.

And of course you’ll still have room for some of the tempting desserts:
