subiaco farmers’ market

The ‘food court’.

For a Saturday market, the Subi Farmers’ Market is the pick of the bunch. It’s family friendly, dog friendly and evidently, a popular stop for Saturday morning brekkie. The ‘food court’ under the big tree, is the spot to chow down on a piping hot calzone, brekkie burger or if you like, even a shakshuka (eggs poached in Moroccan tomato sauce), mopped up with some crusty baguette. Not a bad way to start a weekend!

Greek sweets and pastries.

 

Bread lovers take note, there’s quite a range here… (mmm carbs.) French style miche loaves and plump buttery brioche are good buys from the aptly named Brioche. For rustic, hand formed sourdough bread, join the queue at Organic Loafers. What started out as a small operation in naturally leavened bread has become a full time business for Organic Loafers. These guys do great bread. There was also another stall selling wheat free, gluten free breads and pastries that looked okay too.

Tarts at Brioche. (The rhubarb and raspberry tart was sublime!)

The produce stalls are key to any good farmers’ market. One of the produce stalls is particularly huge! It occupies almost a third of the main market space – and its queue is to be seen to be believed. However, there are quite a few organic produce stalls which would appeal to locavores as most of the produce is grown in Perth’s surrounds.

After getting the fruit and veg, don’t forget to buy milk from Sunnydale Dairy. They sell the old fashioned milk with that silky layer of cream that floats to the top. Over the Moon’s cheeses are also wonderful – they do a luscious creme fraiche that always seems to run out! Early bird gets the worm, so to speak – which will never be me, since my weekends are fraught with sleep ins versus farmers markets!

So giving up that morning sleep in (which in winter is no small feat brrrrr), which market do you go to?

And which stall is your favourite? (Mine is the coffee cart!)

    I must get back there. I haven’t been in quite a while.
    We tend to head to Poynter as it is so much closer (bike ridable). I also really love the Mt Claremont markets.
    As our Saturdays are getting a bit crazy, I have been waiting until Sunday and heading to the Stirling markets as the fruit from the Roleystone growers is AMAZING. They sell the most delicious kieffer pears. I had never heard of these before, and I don’t think there is really anywhere else you can buy them. Yum.

    bruisemouse – Heya! I went to the Stirling Farmers Markets and LOVED it. I wish I lived closer. So much to love there – the popcorn stall, the crepes! And those gigantic kieffer pears lol. Plus the flowers there are super fresh too. Why does NOR get all the good stuff? ;)

    Jessica – Lol yeah the early mornings suck. But now you have Coventry Markets around the corner (literally)!! Lucky duck.

    Spark – Thanks for dropping in Spark! Yep definitely check out the Subi Markets, they are one of the best around. If you can, check out the Stirling Farmers Market, I reckon that one is going to be hugely successful, just like Subi.

    Madame Chesson – Who needs to shop when you can eat on Chapel Street?! :P

    Food Cravings – Hi! Aww I got with my mum too! Gotta catch up with you guys soon. :)

    I haven’t been to the Subiaco Farmers’ Market in ages! I miss going to them but I don’t really miss the early mornings. Perhaps I should revisit them soon. :)

    PS: Love the photos!

    I’ve really got to get my bottom into gear and check the Subi markets out. LOVE your beautiful photos!

  5. Madame Chesson

    I love all farmers markets! cannot imagine doing my weekly shopping at a sterile and boring supermarket anymore. Nothing can compare to the amazing Bio markets on Rue Raspail but Queen Vic markets, South Melbourne or Prahran markets will suffice! For now anyway…

    I haven’t been to the Subi Farmer Markets for ages too – use to go almost every week with my mum but she’s just got back overseas :) The shakshuka eggs look great – burger boy will love it!

  7. Chuck

    I have never tried Shakshuka before, yet I find it very interesting. I hope that I get to taste it in the soonest possible time.
