The Market Wrap-Up Pt. 2

The markets are the best. You get to give in to your primal need to spend money, but you still feel like you’re fighting consumerism with your bike basket full of your local farmer’s finest fruit & veg and vintage dresses.

This week we crossed the bridge and went to the far north reaches of Sydney to see what was on offer.

Sydney Boutique Market

Suite A23, 24 Lexington Drive, Bella Vista

The Sydney Boutique Market is all about fashion. Each stall is full of products created by unique and emerging designers.

You won’t see any garage sale leftovers; the markets only showcase the most talented and innovative designers they can find, without the huge price tag. It runs the first Sunday of every month along Main Street in Rouse Hill Town Centre.

Castle Hill Farmers & Fine Food Market

Hawkesbury Showground

If you’re after the fresh food kind of markets, Castle Hill is where you need to be. On the second and fourth Saturday of every month, from 8am – 12pm, you can meander through a vast array of gourmet foods.

After you down your bacon and egg roll, go visit Karen and have a chat about her traditional Farmhouse method that produces the best goat’s cheese we’ve ever tried… and have a taste while you’re there.

Kirribilli Markets

Burton St, Milsons Point 

A little closer to the city, the Kirribilli Markets have everything you need. The art, design and fashion market is held on the second Sunday of the month.

It features goods made by market sellers and artisans in the tunnel, with the large green areas displaying the best fashion and food they have to offer. The general market is on the fourth Saturday of the month and exhibits everything from boutique goods to second hand clothes.

But most importantly are the two eating areas, Eat Street and Gourmet Corner. Honestly, before you do anything, grab a gozleme. Nothing helps you prepare to battle huge crowds then the best spinach and feta this side of the bridge​
