After the extremely high numbers for the inaugural Berwick Night Market in January, last Friday saw great numbers without the long food queues.

Stallholders and vendors enjoyed the opportunity to chat with the patrons and the music topped off the relaxed atmosphere.

“These Friday night markets are certainly resonating with the community and why wouldn’t they?” Berwick Night Market event organiser Julie Benson said.

“It’s wonderful to see the locals strolling with the pram, hand in hand with the children as they come on down for a few hours at the end of the working week.”

The March night market takes place on 15 March where the City Of Casey will be having a caravan for residents of the biggest growth corridor in Melbourne to see what plans are afoot for their neighbourhood.

“We can’t thank the community enough for embracing us,” Ms Benson said.

“We hope everyone comes on down to the last night market before we take a hiatus over Winter when we will be presenting the indoor component and two to three takeaway food options from the boardwalk. Back to full swing in September!”
