The last summertime Launceston Night Market on Friday comes with a promise – there’s a winter version ahead.
Tentatively named Fire and Fog, organiser Corey Baker from Red Brick Road Cider said it was hoped the first winter market in May would follow on from the success of the lively food, wine and music night markets, and encourage people out into the streets mid-year.
Mr Baker said the winter version was envisioned as a monthly street party outside Yorktown Square.
Still working out the finer details, Mr Baker said the idea was to celebrate Launceston’s reputation as a foggy place while livening up the streets with fire, food and drink, music, and all that has made the Yorktown Night Markets so successful.
“It’s been amazing, the reception from customers, and existing shop front owners [in Yorktown],” he said.
“[Night markets] are common in Europe, and we’re keen not to see it disappear.”
Summer’s final night market will be held on Friday night in Yorktown Square, from 5pm to 9pm.
