To market....To market....
We've never seen so many markets popping up. From your organic farm fresh produce market (think Gasworks or the St. Kilda Farmers market), your local School Fete and your once a month Book Fair to the delightful Children's markets selling handmade gorgeous-ness (Magnolia Square, Mathilda's, Sugar & Spice Market, Fairy Floss etc).
They're a great way to spend a leisurely weekend, browsing, buying, eating some yummy food, drinking coffee and hanging out with family and friends.
Bonjour Agathé Pâtisserie! The popular french stall has opened up at the South Melbourne Market and is serving it up to locals and french pastrie lovers.
The Paris-inspired bakery had a cult following at the Prahran Market and it's any wonder as you bite into a fresh flaky croissant or pastrie.
Agathe, a Paris-born-and-raised mum of three is the passionate owner and bakes everything fresh behind the counter of the South Melbourne stall.
Drawing it's name from British Cockney for 'starving', Hank Marvin market launched at Alma Park East on Saturday August 1.
To say the area needed something like this was a huge understatement and come Spring, Hank will be pumping! The weekly market is just what the South has been craving for, a 100% family friendly, weekly event where the focus is on delicious food and a festive, community atmosphere.
The market will draw over forty of Melbourne's best food trucks, including Happy Camper Pizza and the Brûlée Cart as well as top fresh food producers in the section of the park off Dandenong Road.
Just off Chapel St in the heart of Sth. Yarra, is the Prahran Market. Purchase some fresh fruit and veg, have a coffee + lunch, purchase some cheese and bread and on certain days, the kids will revel in some activities.
Our favourite day to visit the market is on a Tuesday when the Peninsula Mobile Farm animals come out to play. For only $5.00 entry into the pen you can spend as little or long a time as you like cuddling and frolicking with the animals. Apart from the farm animals there's free face painting (tues/thurs & sunday), coin operated rides and a little library - bring a book and swap it for another in the 'little library'.
