Coburg Night Market 2014
I have taken Sylvia and E has joined us after work a couple of times and the last Friday my parents came along and E met us before we picked up Sylvia from a school sausage sizzle. Each time we have arrived early and watched the markets fill up as the evening darkens.
It feels like there are plenty of options for vegetarians. I also could have had the corn on the cob or some gozleme. I also fancied the broad bean and pea arancini with cabbage salad from Nonna Carmela's food truck that I visited at the Batman Market a few weeks back.
Market Juice. I can vouch for the strawberries which are huge but oh so good.
Bruce Cost ginger ale. We took some away but there is the option of drinking it at the market. I also sampled some of my mum's sangria. It is just right for a balmy summer evening. Others may prefer the offerings of Yarra Coffee or Brown's Corner Hotel.
Pretty Little Things jewellery making parties. Wouldn't they be fun!) Sylvia made a blue necklace. Inspired by Frozen, of course!
As well as jewellery making and dancing, the kids can be entertained with balloons, face painting, hennae tattoos (and let's not tell them about the free lollies!!!!)
Saori Premium Japanese. I really wanted the soya and seaweed sauce but moved on too quickly.
Mavara Edu who made these beautiful dresses was very friendly. She also made gorgeous boxer shorts for men and women. I loved the jewellery by her neighbour Courtesy Please who made some delicate woven earrings like colourful spider webs. And E got to ask the guy with the muso prints on t-shirts if there was a possibility of one with Leadbelly.
Wawa Chocolatier. The chocolate wasn't cheap at $13 a block but it was amazing. The flavours on offer were Lavender Honeycomb and Cocoa Nib; Mint Caramel Crisp; Toasted Sourdough; Fried Almond and Smoked Salt; and Blueberry and Blue Corn. I bought a block of the lavendar honeycomb and cocoa nib. It was so smooth and moreish with chewy honeycomb infused with lavender flavour.
If you are really into the festivities, there are some Christmas goodies to be bought. (Elf poop, anyone?)
