It seems that Westfield have clued onto how much us Brisbane folk enjoy a good market place! We sure are one lucky city, as they have taken our interest and provided ups with the crem de la crem of market stalls for our endless enjoyment!
The Gourmet Markets are held every 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month in the Westfield Chermside car park. The markets runs from 8am – 1pm and is filled with all the stalls to fulfil your breakfast and lunch needs/desires before you head into the shopping centre for some retail therapy!
My top picks? Well, you cannot go past wholemeal and gluten free filled bagels from NYC Bagel Deli Brisbane, ranges of Rosti’s, falafel kebabs, greek deliciousness from Little Sisters stall, freshly ground coffee from Stella Rossa and raw treaties to follow from the Miss Bliss Treats stall!
Speaking of retail therapy, I love none other than that involving more food. Otherwise known as food hordering (or so my family says) you can pick up so many goodies from the Gourmet Market! I enjoyed the range of organic local honey, take home falafel, oil free dips and sauces, organic Australian chocolate, Australian Carob, organic seeds and nuts, Miss Bliss Treats, fresh produce and of course granola from the beautiful The Unrefined ladies!
Hayden Quinn was presenting some delicious recipes at the launch but there is sure to be an impressive line up of food bloggers for future weekends! Besides from last months eye candy, there were attractions for the whole family including a petting zoo!
If you are free, the next Gourmet Markets are on the 10th of May and I strongly encourage a visit if you have even a remote interest in delicious, Gourmet food!
