Open every Sunday, 9am – 3pm Marrickville Markets was much more than the sweet organic produce. 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!
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!
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. It was so tasty. Our favourite were the grilled eggplant with toasted silvered almonds and falafel with tahini sauce. Cooked to perfection. Nothing worse than a dry falafel so i was very impressed.
Then we wandered back over the visit the Bower Co-Op. Which is non for profit environmental charity with the intention to reduce landfill. 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 molds 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!
