Warwick Farm Markets

Q: How many markets can you fit into one Saturday morning?

Answer: Three.

We started off with the Sydney Flower Market, headed to the Hawkesbury Harvest Farmers & Gourmet Food Market, and then just for good measure, finished up at the Warwick Farm Trackside Market.

But first things first: breakfast. Our first bite of sustenance came in the form of a very tasty bacon and egg roll from the cheerful volunteers at the Rotary stand. A motley of sauce (tomato, barbecue and mustard) is splurted in artistic squiggles and a series of happly smiles soon follows.

Then it was a quick explore around the markets which are housed under an open shed. Lots of fruits and vegetables and some cheeses, jams and chutneys. There's nothing too gourmet here, just plenty of fresh honest produce and a host of friendly faces.
