Hot Spot: Hank Marvin Markets

28 October 2015 | 3:09 pm | Staff Writer

If you love the idea of an outdoor market but hate claustrophobic crowds, long queues, overpriced food from predictable vendors, and no sitting space, then you should probably go visit Hank Marvin Markets, because they have none of those things.

There's plenty of green grass to spread out on, the atmosphere is bustling but never crowded, you won't be waiting a silly amount of time between ordering your (reasonably priced) food and receiving it, and the stalls featured at the market rotate every Saturday. Plus, there's always heaps of cute dogs and babies around, if you're into that.

There's a diverse array of street food (kimchi fries, banh mi, toasties, snags, dumplings, burgers, fried chicken, bagels and lots more), patisserie and dessert stalls, coffee carts, a bar, and also fresh and artisan produce stalls. 

The Hank Marvin Markets are on at Alma Park every Saturday, 9am — 3pm.
