EQ Farmers Market – Fox Studios

If there was one place I could visit and never leave it would be a food market. Preferably a daily one piled high with produce, people and filled with excited chatter. Those who would rather shop in sterile, cold bunkers under garish fluorescent lights just haven’t given farmers markets a chance. Nowadays even big cities are well-serviced by several weekly markets. My regular markets (while I’m waiting for my edible balcony to get going!) are the Entertainment Quarter Farmers Markets at Fox Studios (Wednesdays, Saturdays), the Kings Cross Markets every Saturday and the Good Living Pyrmont Markets the first Saturday of every month.Go on! Get out into the fresh air and go to your nearest farmers market. Go to a stall, grab a mango, squeeze it and deeply inhale its exotic scent. Don’t worry no-one will think you’re strange – they’re all doing it too!

    Great coverage of the markets (which are really closeby to me thankfully). The wild garlic and the acid free pineapples are just begging to be tried. Such a shame we couldn't meet at the interview this past weekend. I saw you at the Becasse Producer's Lunch with Carlos Petrini. Next time I shall definitely say hello! 🙂
