    Lovely, friendly atmosphere. A variety of market stalls. Tasted the most amazing chocolate. Ideal for tourists and families.

    Impressive suburban market with density and variety, particularly boutique produce. Smaller than it seems, though.

    There are larger farmers markets around, but this is still a very nice spot to wander through on a sunny, Saturday morning. It runs from around 8/9am - 2pm, every Saturday in the small Fitzroy Gardens park in Kings Cross. You’ll find it just behind the famous El Alamein Fountain.
    Several tempting looking hot food stalls made us stop and we decided to try out a few dishes for a late breakfast/brunch.
    Our favourite was the Sofrito Paella stall. For $15 you get a reasonably large cup of paella with chunks of spicy chorizo and a couple of really big prawns.
    We also tried the fritters at the CornStars stand - two thick, fluffy corn fritters piled high with crispy bacon, sour cream and a choice of extra flavours - $12 and really delicious.
    We took our food and found a spot in the small, open grassy patch where pretty much everyone else was doing the same and sitting back, enjoying a lazy Saturday morning in the sun.
    Apart from cooked food, there were the usual range of stalls that you’d expect to find at a local farmers market - freshly made breads, organic fruit and veg, olives, cheese and salami (we would have tried the salami and olives place but it looked as if you had to buy the whole salami). There was also a honey stall, oysters and a fresh juices place.
    We lingered at the flower stall and eventually left with a bunch of delicately coloured apricot roses. The prices were very reasonable which explained why most people leaving the market seemed to be carrying a bunch of flowers. The range might not have been huge but she had a good selection of mainly roses, cheery looking gerberas and bunches of mixed native flowers. If you live close by, it would be worth coming here for flowers each week.
    Other than food, there was only a small handful of other stalls - some clothing, a pet food stall and a silver jewellery stall. Often local markets will have books and maybe an antiques stall but there weren’t any here (at least not on the weekend we were there).
    Most of the stalls are regulars and were happy to take cards as well as cash.
    Overall it’s quite a small market (although it may have been bigger pre-covid).
    Before you leave, don’t miss the El Alamein Fountain, the beautiful dandelion shaped fountain which has become a Kings Cross landmark.

    Came a long way to visit this place.. it’s not huge, but full of goodies.. most things a few dollars were more than you’d pay elsewhere, but the cheese is inexpensive... the cafe was nice but the muffin surprisingly bland and dry..
    the butcher looked great buT I’m a vegetarian so I headed to the fruit and vege stand..
    The gift baskets beautifully presented.overall a nice place to visit.

    I visit these markets regularly to shop. On the plus side thre are some great stalls selling artisan cheeses, the Scottish butcher (this is the only place I can buy haggis and black pudding!), the chop shop, which sells amazing free range pork. The is more good than bad, but I confess recently I've been disappointed that the organic veggie stalls seem to have disappeared. Perhaps it's temporary, but since that is my main reason for shopping at farmers markets I am less enthusiastic to go to this market. I end up spending more money than I'd planned on lots of delicious but perhaps not entirely necessary things! Hey ho, that's what markets often are .. If you want a pleasant shop, it's worth a visit. If you are doing your weekly shop, maybe Carriage works or my favorite, the Frenchs Forest market on a Sunday is a better bet.

    This is a real hidden gem. Beautiful shop with a huge range of products. Everything looked so nice, it was hard not to buy half the shop. The staff were lovely too.

    These markets are on every two weeks, and a great opportunity to go for a stroll on a Sunday morning. I think there is only one stall that sells fresh fruit and vegetables. Quite a few that sell ready to go food. A few artisan food places as well. It’s a nice little local market, but limited in options. I’d love to see more unique vendors there.
