What Awaits Patrons at Mt Gravatt Marketta for January 2018

Evening market get-togethers, sumptuous food, live music, cocktail and wine bar, and boutique beer are all business as usual at the Mt Gravatt Marketta as it kicks off 2018 with a full January schedule. Happening as usual every Saturday, from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., the street food market takes after its sister, the Miami Marketta of the Gold Coast, and serves up lots of good vibes and weekend partying for the first month of the new year.

Launched in August of 2016, Mt Gravatt Marketta prides itself with an excellent collection of food stalls that it invites to participate. Over time, as the market built its credibility, it has become sort of expected for people to be served unique cuisine offerings. These days, what they wait for is the interesting line-up of bands and the set lists that would keep them company as they eat and drink the night away.

Here is the list of performers that are all set to entertain guests this January at the Mt Gravatt Marketta.
