Dandenong Market general manager Jennifer Hibbs said the World Fare was the perfect place for the whole family to tuck into a global feast.
“Dandenong Market is a melting pot of so many cultures and the fare gives people the opportunity to experience food from every corner of the globe,” she said.
“Visitors can start their global journey with a taste of Turkish kebabs from Fat Kebabs, then Jamaican food from Boss Man Food and finish up with an Uruguayan steak sandwich from El Chivi.
“To satisfy their sweet tooth, they can then indulge in some fairy floss from the Sweet Factory and of course, a donut from Dandee Donuts.”
Dandenong Market is at Clow and Cleeland streets in Dandenong.
World Fare entry and parking are free.
