YOU EAT, YOU VOTE. AT THE YARD
Food Yard is an edgy Industrial Street Food Market in Mornington. The markets offers a unique opportunity to sample flavors from different cultures and enjoy the lively atmosphere & social dining experience.
The venue has been transformed from derelict land at the end of the disused old Mornington Railway Line, into a vibrant industrial venue filled with recycled pallet and electrical cable drum tables, covered milk crate and stool seats, market umbrellas & marquees, festoon lights, fire pits and heaters for winter plus a kids games area. It is proving a great place to catch up with family and friends.
The Melbourne Street Food Awards aims to celebrate, and then find the best of Melbourne's Multicultural Street Food Trucks & Stands. Five qualifying heats, followed by a Grand Final, featuring each of the heat winners, will be staged at the Food Yard in Mornington. Each night will see Street Food Trucks, representing the continent of their origin, doing battle to win the votes of Melbourne Foodies and our Secret Judge to progress through to the Final and go head to head in front of our esteemed judging panel headed by 2021 Australian Chef of the Year Andrew Ballard, to be crowned 2023 Melbourne Street Food Champion and take home the $5,000 Market Credit from Organisers Unrivalled Events.
