Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th July *Rescheduled Dates*
Queen Vic Market will once again host the Truffle Melbourne Festival this winter truffle season. Our free weekend of festivities features live chef demonstrations by Melbourne's finest truffle chefs, affordable truffle tastes, artisanal produce to savour or enjoy at home, fresh truffles from across Australia, an international truffle produce range to tantalise, and mock truffle dog hunts throughout the weekend.
Last year's weekend didn't go ahead due to the COVID-19 restrictions, but the 2019 Truffle Melbourne Festival was a sell-out success! All the exhibitors are queuing up to share new truffle tastes and sensations this year.
MORE DELECTABLE DETAILS TO COME - INCLUDING THE LIVE CHEF DEMO STAGE!
