University of Melbourne Farmers Market: Vegan Lunches
history of the facade on the MSD is quite interesting.
It was originally part of the Bank of New South Wales (that became the Westpac Bank) in 1856 by Joseph Reed and based on St Mark's Library in Venice. When the building was demolished in 1932, the facade was donated to the University and removed by the infamous Whelan the Wrecker. I came by a few years back to see the Commerce Building behind it was demolished. The bank facade was propped up waiting for the MSD to be built behind it. To see what it used to look like, check out the photos in this university lunches post. And speaking of lunches, let's talk about them.
Very Good Falafel in Sydney Road). Their falafel is amazing. Crunchy on the outside and green with enough texture inside not to collapse into mush. I managed to find a break from the queues and order one of their delicious falafels in pita bread which are all vegan.
Jack Irish tv series. You can also enjoy some music from the buskers at the market.
The University of Melbourne Farmers Market also had a few stalls selling fruit and vegetables but it more geared towards lunches than groceries compared to other farmers markets that I visit.
