it adds up to a splendid Sunday morning

Posted on Updated on

Sunday morning was sunny

I spent Saturday food shopping & cooking while the G.O. was at work

We had breakfast food but the kitchen was clean…

We had to get in the car to go out later

The idea of a café breakfast didn’t appeal

Marrickville Organic Food & Farmers Markets

Marrickville Organic Food & Farmers Markets is one of a kind happening near us on a Sunday, a long walk or a short drive from our apartment. We park a little distance away at Enmore Park and stroll the few blocks to the entrance of Addison Rd Community Centre where the market shares its location with Reverse Garbage, The Bower Reuse & Repair Centre and eclectic community groups.

Marrickville Organic Food & Farmers Markets is a diverse, vibrant, busy event where you can browse, shop and eat. We do all three, in that order. As I usually do food shopping on a Saturday at Eveleigh Farmers’ Market, our forays to Marrickville Markets are pleasantly recreational, we pick up extras & impulse buys, and delicious breakfasts we eat casually perched watching the heterogeneous throng. The G.O. inevitably opts for a Country Fresh lamb roll, while I amuse myself perusing the multicultural, vegetarian, vegan, traditional offerings before, this time, deciding on an Egyptian breakfast from Fritter House.

 

Marrickville Organic Food & Farmers Markets are on Sunday 8:00 am – 3:00 pm, located at Addison Rd Community Centre, 142 Addison Rd Marrickville, NSW Australia.

      For now I enjoy those near home and cannot resist a market when we make trips but it would be great to compile a list of markets while travelling the country 🙂

    We love markets too, EllaDee. This one sounds especially interesting. And who would have guessed that corn fritters are part of a traditional Egyptian breakfast? My Mum used to make them when we were growing up in Ohio about 50 years ago. I wonder if they came from an Egyptian tradition or a necessity to use all the corn that was grown in that part of the world? Or both?? Thank you for the tour.

      I also pondered the Egyptian — fritter connection but as fritters are the common denominator of all dishes offered I decided it is the toppings that differentiate that option as “Egyptian”. Regardless it was delicious. I think markets are a great way to experiences the flavour of an area 🙂

    I love my farmers market on Sunday. It’s close enough to walk there from where I live. I usually meet friends , we have lunch, buy our produce and listen to different local bands that play every week. It is fun.

      A market close enough to walk to and haul the bags/trolley home is the best kind of shop local. Sometimes driving, sometimes walking depending on what else the day holds I mostly do my weekly food shopping at nearby markets because they are closer and I’m familiar with the stalls, so I can zip through if I’m busy. I find I am more relaxed at the Sunday market and I enjoy looking for second hand treasures amongst the books and bric-a-brac.

    There’s nothing nicer than a good breakfast , out and about on a Sunday Morning browsing the stalls of a market or in my case a car boot sale.

      It pleases me to think that people the world over congregate outside on weekends enjoying similar activities… the hunter gather instinct still alive and well 🙂

      The day was getting on by the time we left, as we browsed, shopped, ate and browsed some more. I seem to have a favourite book stall at every market we visit and rarely come away empty handed 🙂

    This reminds me of the St Andrews farmer’s market. Well, how it used to be. Haven’t been up since Black Saturday. Maybe it’s time to go back. Thanks for the indirect reminder. 🙂
