Much of Launceston's central business district shuts down on a Sunday but World Street Eats is looking to fill the gap in the food market this weekend.
The new lunch food market at Civic Square is promising international food that feeds not just the tummy but also the soul.
Pearl Chinthammit said each stall had special international dishes that may not be available in restaurants.
"I ask myself as a customer sometimes on Sunday what can I eat, nothing's open and...so we thought we would try something in Launceston and see how it goes," she said.
"I've been living in Launceston for 10 years and I've seen an increase in the diversity...and we had a chat with friends and said wouldn't it be nice to have a market to offer different type of foods."
She said it gave communities a chance to come together and they would look to expand their cuisine choice as the market grew.
"We're trying out with once a month on Sunday, we're trying not to be on the same weekend as the night market but the first one it was a bit unavoidable," Ms Chinthammit said.
Fourteen stalls will showcase a range of international dishes including Afghan samosa, Japanese okinomiyaki and Korean pancakes.
There will be children's activities and the Thai Association giving a traditional performance, a henna tattoo station, animal balloons and local buskers performing.
The market's first event is at Civic Square on Sunday from 10am to 2pm.
