Brewery Yard Markets at Central Park, Chippendale

Nutella donuts from Glazed Doughnuts at Brewery Yard Markets

Markets are never a good match for night owls. Weekend sleep-ins usually win in my household. But a 10am market start is doable in my books, especially if the promise of donuts is involved. That's how I ended up at the new Brewery Yard Markets for their first two sessions of the year.

The Brewery Yard Markets are held at Central Park, across the road from the UTS tower building on Broadway. The markets are held on the first and third Sunday of every month. They first kicked off in October last year.

There's a chilled and laid back feel to the market. The stalls are mostly homewares, beauty and fashion with several food and drink stalls to keep you fed and watered. This market's not really about doing the weekly shop for organic produce. It's all about poking around stalls selling pretty, eclectic and creative products - perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Glazed Doughnuts is my first port of call. These donuts are handmade by two Californians, Candy Berger and Eden Elan.

There are about thirty different donut flavours in their total range. They churn out a small subset of those varieties, rotated every couple of weeks. They do morning drop-offs at various cafes throughout Sydney - these tend to include Paramount Coffee Project, Reuben Hills, Kingswood Coffee, Baker Bros, Tap Espresso, Sample Coffee, John Mantagu, John Smith, The Wedge Espresso and Sensory Lab Bondi.

Their donuts are light and fluffy with a slight chewiness in each bite. There's a great sense of fun in their flavour combinations, jazzing up Nutella with waffle smithereens and banana chips or adding splashes of pistachio green to their candy pink watermelon donut.

Unfortunately they don't seem to be regulars at Brewery Yard Markets anymore. They weren't there on my second visit. You should be able to catch them at Bondi Public School Markets - check their Instagram for the latest.

Free ping pong tables, deck chairs and live music are a nice touch too.

Brooklyn Boy Bagels has a regular stall here. Word is their Matraville store isn't too far from opening either.

I could not pass up a loaf of challah bread. It's been delicious with butter - and I'm looking forward to a couple of decadent French toast breakfasts in my future.

And there was no need to recreate the Seinfeld scene when Elaine misses out on chocolate babka. I managed to score a slice of this sweet yeast treat before they ran out. They also do Nutella and salted caramel with sesame seed versions.

And I had to grab a bagel too. If you want to eat one on the spot, you can get them schmeared with cream cheese for $2.50. If I wasn't on my way to lunch I definitely would have gotten the bacon, bourbon and maple schmear.

    Looks great - a friend has her first stall there this weekend selling her beautiful cakes!

    Looks like a nice little market, so must check it out sometime. And those soaps! They look edible!

    My, the donuts!! I still need to get my hands on those glazed donuts! :D
    However, these markets look pretty good to check out! :)

    I shouldn't have seen this post before bedtime because now all I can think about are those doughnuts :P

    I didn't know there was a market there! Keen on navigating the baked stuff to get to the Vietnamese grilled goodness.

    Dear Helen,

    I'm an early riser anyway but I can be convinced to check out cute little plants during a morning walk :)

    I had to laugh at your opening line - 10am is doable? He he!! You must come check out the Warriewood markets one day. They are on Fridays - I know, it's weird, but it makes it a little different.

    The number of doughnut photos compared to fresh produce was noticed. I approve. :)

    Thanks for another intro, I had no idea there were markets at central park!!

    I need to wake up early to get to this but next week it's on the list!

    It's so true that markets normally do start impossibly early and by the time I stagger down most things are either sold out or look picked-over. I was in Broadway yesterday and I saw that high-rise building with the vertical garden. How's the parking? I had a shocking time. I've never had a watermelon donut and they do look very good xx

    I love a good market...but like you, early morning wakeups on the weekend aren't really my thing! If only afternoon markets were more popular than morning markets...

    I am totally a morning person...much to the distaste of my hubby. Even if we go to bed late you can be guaranteed me (and the cats) will be wide awake before 6am. Nutters.

    The market's aren't huge but they're good enough for me to get my bagel fix from Brooklyn Boys! Kraving K joined the line up this week too so that's something I'd look out for in the future (when I'm not already in a bagel coma)

    That looks like a fun way to spend a weekend! And even I could manage a 10am start. ;)

    These markets are on my radar and 10am start isn't that bad. Challah makes the BEST french toast breakfast.

    I'd be happy to wake up early for those donuts anytime. Thanks for the review Helen!
