Farmers Market @ The Entertainment Quarter

With the Grower Markets becoming so crowded I find that I’m starting to love the Farmers Market at the Entertainment Quarter more and more. I come here to buy flowers for the house every fortnight, whilst it's a relatively small market a lot of what I buy at the Grower Markets is available here (such as fresh bread, butter, jams and olives).

The flowers here are such a bargain! From my observations you easily pay double the price at any City flower shop. The pink roses were just stunning today.

There's also this bread shop that specialises in all different types of cakes and tarts. There seems to be something different on offer each time that I come. There is a large variety of breads to choose from but they don't do tarts every week. When they do, most of the popular ones sell out just after lunch time.

It sure beats shopping at Coles

Farmers Markets
Entertainment Quarter
Wednesday & Saturday 10am to 4pm

Merchandise Markets
Saturday 10am to 4pm

The best thing is that parking is free for the first 2 hours in the car park next door, you never have to worry about wasting time looking for a park!

where is the entertainment quarter?

Noodles: The old fox studios.

Em, check out the Paddington markets for painting and art works etc. Went yesterday and it's relatively big and has heaps and heaps of arty stuff. Don't go after four though, because they won't sell to you cos if they do they'll lose their licence.
