Truffle Melbourne Pop-Up

Thu 28th May, 2020 – Mon 31st August, 2020
Shed X at Queen Victoria Market
Queen Street, Melbourne
With a huge festival off the cards because of coronavirus, Truffle Melbourne is selling fresh truffles and truffle-spiked products at a Queen Victoria Market stall.

Truffle Melbourne is usually the biggest weekend truffle festival outside of Europe. But because of Covid-19, this year’s instalment – the festival’s seventh – has been scaled down.

It centres around a fancy fungus pop-up at Queen Victoria Market (near the American Doughnut Kitchen van), which is still trading throughout lockdown 2.0.

Here, find fresh truffles grown locally in Gippsland or flown in from Western Australia. Single truffles – perfect for a few friends to share, shaved over pasta or risotto (with some leftovers) – start at $30. The pop-up is also stocked with plenty of truffle-spiked products such as truffle aioli, truffle honey and truffle oil.

Those who can’t get to the market can shop Truffle Melbourne’s full range at its online store.

Hours:
Tue 8am–3pm
Thu & Fri 8am–3pm
Sat & Sun 8am–4pm
