I’m a big fan of markets. I love their friendly, buzzing atmosphere and I love supporting local businesses, especially producers. Turns out my Dad feels the same way. This morning we headed out for some father-daughter bonding foodie time at The Market Shed on Holland, the new kid on the Adelaide market block. The markets run every Sunday 9am-3pm in, funnily enough, a market shed on Holland Street (just behind the Gilbert Street IGA) and have a focus on wholefoods and organics. Some stallholders are permanent fixtures and some rotate through, keeping things fresh (pardon the pun) every week.
Dad loved the quirky band and Mother and Sons bakery’s gorgeous display of crusty, delicious breads.
I was a fan of the delish raw sweets and treats (my latest foodie obsession) offered by Bona Food, Raw Karma and Living Table.
We came away with a bag full of deliciousness for our respective lunches that included a jar of olive tapenade, semi-sour baguette and custard tart (Dad) and a veggie Nori roll, drinking coconut, rosemary honey walnuts and a gluten and dairy-free chocolate slice (me).
Ever the sweetheart, Dad grabbed a little jar of super sweet-smelling flowers and a custard tart to take home for Ma too.
I’d probably recommend hitting up The Market Shed for brekkie or brunch and then buying stuff to take home too because there was so much Dad and I missed out on trying and too much to possibly limit to just one meal of the day! That’s my plan of action for next time, anyway!
