Have you ever had mango salsa bao, footlong hotdogs with mango sauce or mango glazed popcorn? Here’s your chance to try these mango-flavoured and mango-filled treats at the inaugural Brisbane Night Market Mango Festival in Rocklea!
September through February in Australia brings a veritable feast for the senses — the warm feeling of sunshine, the smell of charring meat on the barbie, the sound of kookaburras, and the taste of sweet and sticky mango juice around your mouth. For the first time ever, Rocklea is setting up the Brisbane Night Market Mango Festival to welcome this most fun time of the year.
Famous for its fresh produce, this market will be presenting all things mangoes for four Friday nights beginning the 20th of Sept until the 11th of Oct 2019. Held from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at 385 Sherwood Road, expect every possible mango dish you can think of at this event.
Mango pies, mango gelatos and mango drinks are a given but this festival will take things up a notch. Where else can you get these divine mango delights?
