Six tonnes of mussels. That’s what is promised at the fifth-annual Port Phillip Mussel & Jazz Festival.

If you’re not familiar with the annual 2-day mussel festival at South Melbourne Market, here’s a rundown. The event is designed to showcase mussels that have been harvested from Port Phillip Bay, along with live jazz performances from some of Australia’s best jazz musicians.

Expect food from the likes of South Melbourne Market’s own Claypots Evening Star, Köy, Paco y Lola, Simply Spanish, and Bambu along with some other great pop-up restaurants.

If you’re not keen on mussels (what’s wrong with you) there are plenty of other seafood options to choose from like oysters, prawns, bugs, and calamari from Aptus Seafood, or for something a bit extra go for the raclette poured over crunchy potatoes.

The event takes places on March 10 and 11, and entry is free.
