Markets - fashion,
Why locals love it
This old dame has been turning up every weekend - rain, hail or shine - with music and merriment, food and fashion, books, bric-a-brac, odds and sods. She's aged beautifully, gracefully, like a family heirloom with classic features. She could never go out of style... so long as your style is bohemian bourgeois.
Why you should visit it
The markets aren't just for shopping. The old dame fills cheap chow prescriptions. She's got shots of cheesy gosleme, chilli stoked doses of madras cuisine, Hungarian donuts + organic apples to keep the doctor away. Stock up, find a patch of grass, soak up the sun and bask in the warm lilt of Saturday afternoon, mingling with soulful tunes.
Take your chow on the 431 bus to Bicentennial Park - a sprawling pleasure garden overlooking Rozelle Bay. Bring a blanket and watch the day drift by.
