The popular Lucky Dumpling Market will be returning this year.
While it’s not a market dedicated entirely to the world’s best food (dumplings), it’s a lively hub boasting flavours and vibes that will transport you to the street markets of Asia.
This is your chance for a taste of dumplings, noodles, bao, salads and curry, with premium wine and beer also on offer.
The team behind the Adelaide Fringe venue, Gluttony, is organising the event, just as they did last year.
The first Lucky Dumpling Market was held in 2017, as the new food, bar and entertainment hub for OzAsia Festival.
This year it is keeping that title, and will also be the only physical event for the festival.
“We think that South Australians will be very keen to get out and about in Adelaide, taking in the beautiful surrounds of the riverbank precinct, whilst enjoying some delicious food and drink in the great outdoors, and celebrating the rich multiculturalism of our community,” said Lucky Dumpling Market joint event director, Elena Kirschbaum.
“Lucky Dumpling Market also represents an ideal opportunity for us to establish sensible COVID Safe measures at our events and introduce our patrons to new styles of public event design and processes.”
Lucky Dumpling Market will also host free, live entertainment, including music, dance, and community activations.
This year, the markets will be held at Elder Park on the Adelaide Riverbank, with the bigger space allowing for physical distancing, and a COVID-safe festival experience.
The market will boast 17 food stalls, including:
- Bao+ (Taiwanese)
- Bubble Bus (bubble tea)
- Chef Kim (Korean)
- Disco Donuts (donuts)
- Enfes Delights (Turkish)
- FIRE by Soi 38 (Thai)
- Forage Supply Co (vegan)
- GANG GANG (burgers)
- Jalan Jalan (Malaysian)
- Phat Head (dumplings)
- Ragi’s Spicery (Indian)
- Shibui Dessert Bar(dessert)
- Soza’s (Sri Lankan)

- The Market Black (coffee)
- TMR Dumpling (Vietnamese)

The Lucky Dumpling Market is open Tuesday – Sunday, from 30 October – 15 November 2020. It will be closed on Mondays.
