Kings Cross Organic Market, Potts Point


Lemon sour cake from Birgitta's Bites

En-route to brunch at Yellow Bistro & Food Store, I was pleased to happen upon the Kings Cross Organic Markets, a small but friendly cluster of stalls just past the dandelion-shaped El Alamein Memorial fountain.

Foods mix with craft at this laid-back local market, but there's still plenty of bakeries, exotic mushrooms, smoked goods and gourmet teas to tempt the palate. Bunches of flowers burst with colour, bacon and eggs sizzle happily on the grill, and the locals seem content to wander through and chat: a perfect lazy start to a Sydney weekend.

    Didn't even realise Kings Cross had an organic market. Those apple pies look mighty good!

    I've been meaning to visit this market for ages! How does it compare in size to the Northside produce market?

    Hi Y - The Kings Cross market has been around for at least a year, I'm sure :) It used to be every fortnight, but is now every Saturday.

    Hi Rontarre - Thanks. Freshly baked bread always looks yummy!

    Hi ffichiban - I'm always on high alert :)

    Hi roentarre (again!) - Farmers markets are a great way of getting back to "real food".

    Hi sormuijai - It's quite small compared to Northside; the foodstalls are probably about 1/4 the size? It does open later though, and now there's Fratelli Fresh and lots of other yummy pastry shops to explore in the area too.

    Hi. Been at this market today. Down the road there is also a supermarket with a good organic section.

    Thanks. Ton.
