During the week Broadway Market has a quaint village feel which is packed with fantastic restaurants, coffee shops and pubs. However it’s on a Saturday that this road really comes to life, as the market becomes the real star. Stretching all the way down the street this food-lovers market is as much about seeking out quality food as it is about soaking up the relaxed atmosphere – with a freshly grilled burger in one hand and a chilled ice coffee in the other. Stalls range from delicious desserts with a twist on the classics including the meringue girls and crosstown doughnuts to the katsu chicken wraps and unbelievably good tuna burgers from the guys at Fish & Flounder, and if the sun is shining a stop at Nonna’s cycle kart for some homemade gelato is a must. Spices, cheeses, breads, rare-breed meat, handmade pasta and olives are all present – it's hard to imagine the need to go anywhere else for your weekly food shop. The only issue you have is trying to figure out what to eat and from where.
