Quay Quarter Lanes Markets will launch on Wednesday November 9 at Customs House Square, Sydney, with an oyster giveaway for shoppers from 12pm.
The free oysters will be hand shucked on site by Sydney seafood legend Stephen Hodges, of Fishface fame, and given to shoppers, until stocks run out.
The giveaway coincides with the first day of this produce market that will be held on the second Wednesday of each month at Customs House Square on Alfred Street in Sydney.
The Quay Quarter Lanes Market will feature the very best producers, providores, farmers, bakers and makers from across Sydney and NSW. Local businesses will also be participating in the market, with beautiful pastries and coffee from the nearby Grana restaurant, while Zini Gelato will be selling their luscious gelatos, Bubble Nini will be offering bubble teas and Adora Handmade Chocolates will have their delicious treats.
From Cambridge Markets’ list of stallholders, the market will feature the likes of Brickfields Bakery, Taylor Made Tea, Le Saucier sauces, the Honey Library, Botega 1900 smallgoods, Karu Distillery, Farmer and Sons fresh fruit and veg from the farm at Coleambally and surrounding farms in Riverina, and Rita’s organic produce. Flowers will be from Mayfarm Flowers.
“This is all about bringing high-quality fresh produce and goods to the city and about connecting farmers and producers with people who live and work in the CBD,” says Cambridge Markets’ Bec Fox.
“The great thing about markets is the connections they bring between consumer and maker and we think this is a special opportunity to bring the bush to the streets of Sydney.
“We can’t wait to give away heaps of oysters to customers who come and check out this wonderful new market. It will be a great day.”
The market is supported by City of Sydney and Quay Quarter Lanes and will run from 8am-2pm monthly.
