Brisbane's newest market marks a mark at Milton

It's market mayhem at Milton with another new Sunday morning option for inner city and western suburbs locals at Cribb Street.

If you were a fan of the Red Hill Markets, you'll find much to love at this new venue because it's practically a direct lift.  There are many familiar faces amongst the stall holders and also amongst the crowd.

It's a refreshing change to grab a street park 
so easily at a weekend market.

What's different here is the addition of 350 undercover car parks courtesy of a parking station.  That doesn't mean all your parking woes will disappear, but arrive at the right time (either early or late) and you've got a good chance of nabbing a park.  

There's also street parking to be found in the adjacent commercial district.  Having frequently hunted around here for a park during the week, it's a refreshing change to grab a street park so easily at a weekend market.

The other good thing about this market is that it's all on one level plot of land that's been newly asphalted which makes it easy to negotiate. The downside is that the asphalt tends to stick to the sole of your shoes, but I guess that won't last.

This is what I found at the market.

Choose your heat by your plant with this selection of chilli bushes or taste your suburb through Bee One Third's distinctive honeys gathered from hives around Brisbane.

Into the new creative style pottery dishes that are popular at restaurants such as Stokehouse Q?  You'll find similar examples at this stall.

The Cheese Pleaser was there with delicious cheese themed treats.  I also found the most delicious egg tarts.

Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, some with signs proclaiming their farm origins.

Grab a very tasty breakfast from Market Larder.  

The market opens at 6 am every Sunday and finishes at 12 noon.

Best tip: As with all markets, get there early.
