Marrickville Organic Market: THE EXPERIENCE
It all started with an IG poll on our story… We let our followers vote to see us either doing a hike or going to a market. And market it was! We Googled “markets on today in Sydney” and straight away Marrickville Markets caught our attention! It had been aaages since our last market day and we hadn’t been to the Marrickville one yet so we were super excited. Any inner west market is usually a good market!
When we left the house, the sun was shining and the skies were clear. About 4 minutes before we arrived, the clouds turned moody and it started raining. No rain no flowers right?
We scored a park on Addison road right out front of the market entrance. First thing’s first… CAWFEE. We smelt the magical aromas of Alex’s coffee which is right in front of the Reserve Garbage warehouse. Although we think buying $4 coffee’s is the biggest trap money taker – we will occasionally like to get one as a treat!
Walking by some beautiful fresh produce stalls and a yummy smelling Gozleme stall around the corner, my eyes met with the Natas Portuguese Tarts stall which I’m assuming they got the name from as in Portuguese is called Pastel De Nata. Id only ever tasted a Portuguese tart once years ago so I was keen to try it again. A little bit too sweet for me if I’m being honest!
And of course a Sydney market wouldn’t be a market without a record stand.
The next thing that caught our eyes was the Egyptian Street Food sign. We had to check it out.
A few seconds of looking at the menu we decided we wanted the mixed platter hahah. It didn’t take much to decide! It was so tasty. Our favourite were the grilled eggplant with toasted silvered almonds and falafel with tahini sauce. I’ve only ever had a few falafel in my time that weren’t dry and overcooked so this was a great.
Then we headed back over the visit the Bower Co-Op. Which is non for profit environmental charity with the intention to reduce landfill. Inside we found anything from second hand goods, antiques and books to all sorts of screws, tools and cables. It was an interesting place.
Then we headed to our last stop which went by the name of Reverse Garbage. Jackie remembered her mum taking her here when she was a kid to get some crafty things. It was again verrrrry interesting. The first things that caught my eye were the ex mouth moulds from the local dentist, then the more inviting old school Kodak mini films. I could’ve looked through these for hours.
We looked at the time and we had literally been in there for an hour. We decided it was time to part ways! We headed to Glebe in a rainy yet pleasant commute to visit Sappho Books Cafe and Bar. Half bookshop half cafe and wine bar. A must visit when in the inner west!
So shout out to all of those who voted for the markets! It was a lovely day. Even if it was pouring with rain towards the end, we found great shelter in the bookshop!
