Fifty food vendors await the adventurous diner at Melbourne's newest multi-venue snack showcase.

Japanese soufflé pancakes. Lobster rolls. Loukoumades. Pierogi. Prawn tacos. Nasi bakar. Fish and chips. Katsu sandos. South African barbecue. Thai seafood. Afghan kebabs. There’s a whole lot going on at Grazeland, and you’re going to want to put a whole lot of it in your mouth.

Set on 10,000 square metres of reclaimed industrial land (it used to be a bottling plant), the new development features 50 different food businesses, many of them set up in shipping containers. They’re complemented by not one but three bars, a scattering of boutiques, with decking and some fine river-frontage on the banks of the Yarra when the weather is playing fair, and plenty of space under cover for when it isn’t. 

A mere $2.50 grants entry to adults (kids under 12 are free), dogs are welcome (on a leash), and live music is a feature on two stages on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Our advice: arrive hungry.
