Screen Shot 2016-06-08 at 12.18.11 PMPerth’s cooler weather sees the City’s favourite community night market of the season fire up. On the last Friday of June, July and August, the Perth Town Hall undercroft and foyer transforms into the lively international street food market Winter Supper Club.
Lord Mayor Scaffidi said this year’s market will trade from 5pm until the later time of 9pm to welcome late night shoppers and those dining pre and post Winter Arts Festival events.
“A really vibrant village atmosphere comes from the market being intimately nestled in and around the Town Hall – not unlike similar town halls and squares around the world, designed as civic meeting places for just this type of experience,” the Lord Mayor said.
Presenting Perth’s newest and favourite affordable quality street food, the fifth annual Winter Supper Club sees seven new stalls and food trucks join a changing lineup of 18 vendors each month, plus roving accordion, guitar and ukulele players, and a pop-up bar.
New food highlights include Twin Beaks’ brioche burgers of duck confit with a choice of three local toppings: goats cheese and beetroot relish, blue cheese and quince chutney, or pecorino with truffle oil and caramelised onion.
La Bombetta debuts with grass-fed beef and potato galette with smoked onion puree, and slow cooked free range pork belly and pickles on brioche. Suppa Club brings gourmet soups like pumpkin & coconut, and tomato, goats cheese & basil, served in a bread bowl.
New food trucks will extend onto Hay Street: visiting small-batch roasters Gypsy Part of Town making coffee, chai, and arepas (filled corn cakes); The Pasta Truck with slow cooked brisket ragout rigatoni and pesto pumpkin & ricotta ravioli; and Empire’s GF & veg Turkish menu including lamb & okra with pomegranate and herb & seed crusted wedges.
Other plentiful vegetarian and gluten-free options include El Alamen’s GF vegetarian sausages and Ragin Cajun’s vegetarian gumbo, while many other stalls can cater to special dietary requirements on request.
Enjoy your rustic supper with a palate-cleansing Moroccan mint tea, warming mulled wine, a winter cocktail, or several varieties of hot chocolate including peppermint and vanilla.
And save room for delectable desserts including new vendor Chou Chou’s chocolate flambe and caramel apple, almond pear and orange hazelnut tarts, or treats from Supper Club’s stars of the new State Buildings, Sue Lewis Chocolatier and The Honeycake.
​“The completion of the State Buildings really allows the Perth Town Hall to shine and is another reason our stunning historic landmark has a renewed energy,” Ms Scaffidi said. “We’re delighted to see this winter night market return under the Town Halls’ Neo-Gothic archways and see our magnificent icon overflowing with Perth’s latest food trends. It’s your ideal stop for a snack, drink or dinner with friends, family or colleagues, made even better when paired with any one of the 130 other Winter Arts Festival events.”
