Continual sporadic showers and a dramatic temperature plunge last Saturday did little to deter our market browsing intentions.
We headed to the Farmers Markets at the Entertainment Quarter, the enormous white canopies offering welcome shelter from the unobliging weather.
The cupcakes and muffins loked cute, but with our bellies grumbling at 11am we were more interested in the prospect of a nourishing tasty breakfast.
Garlic prawns from Mojo Picon
A had the garlic prawns, cooked fresh on the grill with Mojo Picon's garlic tomato sauce. Veruca Salt and I, however, only had eyes for the thick fingers of juicy chorizo, seared on the grill to produce patches of caramel brown along its skin, and jammed into a crusty roll and smothered in Mojo Picon sauces.

Macarons and tarts from Beb Patisserie
Almond crossiant from Beb Patisserie
Now that we'd had our savouries, we could then move onto dessert. I waxed lyrical about the almond crossiant from Beb Patisserie so much that not only did I convince Veruca to buy one, but somehow I really needed one as well.
It's a crisp flaky crossiant with a rich pastry that tastes of almond meal. And to wash it down we couldn't resist a steaming hot chocolate from Toby's Estate.

One stall was selling fresh jackfruit much to the intrigue of passing shoppers. The jackfruit was a little unripe and firm for my liking, but then perhaps they thought its lighter flavour would be more appealing to the uninitiated.
