It's been six months since we last visited Northside Product Market, but everything was just as we remembered it. The casual stroll of Northside shoppers means it's a little easier to chat to the market stall owners. We found out, for instance, that apparently geese only lay eggs once a year, and the goose eggs above would reveal an egg yolk about the size of half a cricket ball.
But first, we had to have breakfast. This time we all opted for wagyu steak sandwiches. These were a little chewier than most wagyu I've had the pleasure of eating, but for $5, it makes a reasonable steak sandwich, and provides the requisite levels of iron for a day of fooding ahead.
Wagyu steak sandwich $5.00
The village-like atmosphere at Northside is always welcoming: there's always a more casual, less harried air to these markets than the ones at Pyrmont, and plenty of soft grass and shady trees allow families and friends to stretch out and soak up the sunshine, after a morning of shopping on a summery Saturday morning.
