Ever since we tried the churros at Eumundi Markets last July, we’ve been thinking about it and today, we finally went back for more. (It’s a lonnnnnnng (1 hour 45 minutes / 125 km) drive away and hence we haven’t been able to go back as often as we’d like to…)
Although the drive was long, it was lovely to appreciate the beautiful sky along M1 / Bruce Highway…
It’s also interesting to observe the clouds along the way; can you spot any animals? 😉
What does this look like?
It’s really difficult to get a parking lot along Memorial Drive, which is directly in front of the Eumundi Markets, which is behind the Eumundi Emporium/New Agency (in picture), and so we parked at a car park along Etheridge St ($5 per car)…
“Eumundi Markets is open rain, hail or shine every Wednesday and Saturday.”
It is “Australia’s premier artisan market; visit the Original Eumundi Markets if you’re looking for something different, something handmade, something special…”
One thing to love about Eumundi Markets is the wide variety of food and snacks (dumplings, nachos, laksa, burgers, German sausages, pork belly rolls, paella, satay, calamari, cheese, coffee, juices), stalls of fresh produce (fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly baked breads, locally made cheeses and yoghurts), stores of original artworks, sculptures, furniture, handmade toys, homewares, skincare and cutting edge fashion and jewellery by local designers as well as showcases of world-music sounds, country tunes or tribal rhythms.
First stall that opens the walkway to the market, macadamia nuts of different flavour which are pretty tasty…
Other stores/shops/stalls in the market…
Food street!! 😛
The crosses at this stall (on the 3rd terrace), Liza Enger Design, caught our attention:
These embossed decorative tiles are made by the stall-owner’s daughter, Liza, who may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A short distance away is Sweet Floz Churros, the churros stall we travelled 125 km for!
These churros are absolutely fantabulous!!!
The churros are freshly made and deep-fried to perfection – crispy on the outside but soft on the inside; and not oily too!
“Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, their churros are cooked on-site in the traditional way using fresh dough.
Churros are then rolled in cinnamon sugar and served with a choice of different home-made sauces: warm dark chocolate sauce, ginger syrup or Dulce De Leche.
It doesn’t get any fresher!
You’r mouth will be watering in the minute you smell them cooking, and prepare to be addicted when you taste them. Just divine!”
This is our second order of 2 x 5 churros, and so we got an extra on each plate. 😀
Just beside Sweet Floz is a musical showcase:
Making our way back to the entrance is a stall selling accessories:
J is having a little ring craze now, and together with the girls, she bought a ring on the ‘3 for $25’ deal.
These “beer coolers” are cool! 😛
J would buy a couple for her dad when her family comes over in June-July. 😉
As we headed off, we dropped by to get some Ginger Beer.
Directly opposite the Ginger Beer was a man who caught our attention with the bird-sounds he made!
He sold the whistles at $5 each and he could make a variety of sounds with 3 different whistles.
Eumundi Markets in the Oz news:
After we were done with Eumundi Markets, we decided to head opposite to Eumundi Pavillion Markets:
This market paled in comparison (greatly!) to the Eumundi Markets, probably because it is much smaller or because we visited pretty late.
We bought candy from this stall:
The mint candy was terrible. 😐
What J wore to today:
Christmas gift-top from her childhood BFF (Fidelia – 25 years of friendship!! 😉 ), comfy tights purchased in Shanghai and comfy kicks from Timberland. 😀
This ✞ caught our hearts (while the anchor ring caught J’s) and here it is in our temporary home before bringing back to our future home! 😀
Reminder for us to be anchored in His love. 😉 ✞ = ♡
