Sydney Morning Herald Growers Markets Pyrmont

Sydney Morning Herald Growers Markets next to The Star was kinda like Eveleigh Markets, but with a killer view and much spread out. They are held on the first Saturday of each month and I decided to go on August 2, 2014.

“Located by Sydney Harbour at the picturesque Pyrmont Bay Park, The Sydney Morning Herald Growers’ Market features more than 70 producers’ stalls selling everything from fresh fruit and seasonal vegetables to venison, lamb, beef, rare-breed pork and seafood. Loyal regulars and visitors make a morning of it with specialty breakfasts, locally-roasted coffee and much more”.

You know what? I honestly thought the markets were at Pirraham? Park and not actually right next to The Star. Cut my walking time by a good 5 minutes and increased the amount of spending by 5 minutes. Maybe it was a good thing? Maybe it was a bad thing for my wallet? Anyways..

The first thing I noticed about these markets was the spaciousness of it. The large white tents were nicely spaced out into a large oval, and then another strip of stalls were down at the water.

Secondly, like Eveleigh, there were many samples but of course not as many. There were stalls which I’d never seen before at markets! Yay! Efendy had these delicious dips for sampling.

EatMeChutneys saves squishy, wonky, wounded, unsold produce and makes epic ‘rescued’ chutneys.

It’s not everyday you have a market right next to the Harbourside! The farmers must love coming here once a month to have a different sea change.

Notable stalls that also come here are Sonoma, Farmer Jos, Ruby and Rach, and Ocello.

There’s even a fun saucisson stall with French girls in berets and a very charismatic French Monsieur!

There are also some nice plants to buy and it’s good to know there’s a bit of parking around.

Some girls brought in some mushrooms for show and tell!

The areas to site down were huge and grassy. Very picturesque.

Easily a great place to chill outside and these markets will go off during summer!

Value: =)

Would I recommend going to Growers Markets Pyrmont? If you live in the area, it would be good. There’s a lot of a produce but not a huge huge amount if variety. There was one cheese shop and a lot of them had egg and bacon rolls. They were $5-$6 each so grab brekkie here!

Highlight: the location is central to everything. I was walking from Townhall so I passed Darling Harbour. It’s right next to the wharf so it’s a good stroll after looking at the markets. The Star is right next to the markets too and Messina and Zumbo are there! You can kill 5 birds with a stone! (Not literally!!)

Suggestion of improvement: I think we were until about 11:30 and the stalls were already closing! I’m super used to Eveleigh Markets which close up at around 12:30-1ish and so this was quite early..but then again the farmers do drive a long way to get here!

Ends: August 2, 2014 and occurs on the first Saturday of each month
