E & I love a weekend sleep in, but when our neighbours woke us up early on a chilly Sunday morning it gave us the perfect excuse to brace the cold and head down to the weekly Victoria Park Farmers Market. The market is a fairly new addition to Vic Park, but has quickly become a favourite with locals.
Fresh produce, cakes and slices, plenty of breakfast options and a pooch or five, E and I took a wander around the bustling John Macmillan Park before deciding on freshly made bacon, egg, onion and cheese rolls to fill our bellies. The roll was the perfect Sunday breakfast – fresh, tasty and damn delicious. We also grabbed a coffee and fresh pressed juice from the Jacqui Mac Coffee Cart. A great brew, and definitely worth the wait. And they use Bon Soy soy milk, big ticks from this coffee fanatic.
What is a market visit without picking up some tasty sweet treats? The Vintage Style Cakes & Cookies stall had a fabulous range of small bites, and I went home with a GF Brownie ($3.50). It was absolutely decadent and moist, and featured shavings of tasty chocolate on top. Moreish. E went with a bright blue cupcake courtesy of a cake stall run by the local swimming club. If you’re not a sweet fan the Holy Bagel Co. or That Little Mexican Place can help you out with savoury options.
If you’re looking for some fresh veg, flowers or even just a bite to eat, this is your place. The market runs from 8- 11am every Sunday, rain or shine. Look out for upcoming vendors and details via Facebook.
