Double Bay - Every Thursday
This market has been running for a while but escaped my scrutiny as it runs every Thursday. Luckily,
I have a couple of clients in the area and I recently got a chance to time my visits to them to coincide with the market...
It is quite a small market, but with a well heeled clientele - Double Bay is often referred to as Double Pay... - and the market is consequently quite "upmarket". A few familiar faces and a few new ones as well made the trip interesting and worthwhile. Here are a few photos to tell their stories.
Danks St - Waterloo - Open for three weeks Now - Saturday & Sunday
With about 5000 apartments having been built or in construction over the last ten years, and mostly occupied by young people, Waterloo and the food heaven of nearby Danks Street, made famous by Jared Ingersoll at Danks Street Depot and Fratelli Fresh who paved the way for many more, it was inevitable that another avatar of the "Organic Food Markets" empire would pop up here... Technically, it is not in the fancy bit of Danks Street but across the road towards the Eastern Distributor but conveniently located on a pedestrian strip lined up with Cafés and other food outlets. It is definitely an up and coming place and it will eventually attract more people than this second edition on a rainy day!
There is a good mix of stalls and one we know: Jean-Marc, aka Mr Saucisson, aka La Bastide was there "en force"!
