Update (August 31): Melbourne Food & Wine Festival’s Winter Edition – including this event – has been cancelled.
Melbourne Food & Wine Festival is opening a convenience store with a difference.
At The Convenient Store, a 10-day pop-up at Queen Victoria Market, there’ll be no soggy sangas. The shelves will be stocked with grab-and-go items from some of Melbourne’s best venues.
Under one roof you’ll be able to pick up Pie Thief’s lasagne pie and vegan spaghetti bolognaise pie; a katsu sando (or an egg sando tribute to Japanese chain Lawson) by Supernormal; Welsh rarebit Danishes from Monforte Viennoiserie; 7-Eleven chicken nuggets with Lee Ho Fook spiced red vinegar; and a mammoth deli-style “motherlode” sandwich stacked with cold cuts and cheese from every single deli in Queen Victoria Market’s Dairy Hall.
From 8am to 6pm daily.
