James St Food & Wine Trail returns next week

After a two-year hiatus, James St Food + Wine Trail returns across four days – culminating with the community’s much-loved street-takeover Market Day on Sunday 31 July, closing down James Street from McLachlan to Arthur Street to transform the precinct into a huge urban picnic. This year’s event is slated to be the biggest since its inception nine-years ago.

In the three days leading up to Market Day, some of James St’s residents will offer one-off menu pairings, multi-course feasts and tastings, with Mosconi, Gerard’s Bar, The Green, ESSA, Harvey’s Bar + Bistro and Tippler’s Tap each offering a variety of Trail Day experiences leading into the Market Day finale.

Market Day will see nineteen of James Street’s insanely tasty venues like Gemelli, sAme sAme, ESSA, Biánca and SK Steak & Oyster popping up between 10am and 6pm, joined by 13 pop-up bars providing the spritzy goodness.

Expect treats like limited-edition desserts from Messina, fried chicken and truffle rolls from Essa and porchetta rolls from Mosconi, while Hellenika will come through with chargrilled octopus, lamb ribs and Greek salad. There’ll be five stages for live music scattered throughout the precinct and, as always, entry will be totally free.
