Brisbane’s food scene continues to grow more exciting with the opening of another farmer’s market, this time in user friendly, city central Kelvin Grove Urban Village. This is an area that has changed dramatically in recent years. Gone are the streets of workers cottages and in their place is multi story apartment living, a new home for La Boite Theatre and an expanded campus for the Queensland University of Technology. The new market will be located on Blamey Street and will be an extension of the popular West End Flea Markets operated by Peter Hackworth. The promise is fresh fruit and vegetables, organic foods, gourmet stalls, plants, herbs, flowers, pre-loved clothing, bric-a-brac and buskers every week. There's quite a lot of parking in the area so hopefully it will not be an issue. It all starts on Saturday June 7 – tomorrow. I can’t get there but I’d love to know what it’s like, so please leave a comment below.
