Two weisswursts – one with sinus-blasting hot English, the other with Dijon.
A pricey ($4) but very good cafe latte at a serious coffee joint.
A small bar of organic chocolate to take home.
I dimly remember a time when the Vic market was pretty much moribund on Sundays. A few stalls in the food hall open, and far from all of them open in the wide open acres of general merchandise and clothing.
It’s all go these days – almost everything open, but with a pleasing drop in the sometimes fraught ambiance and crowded scenes that are the market on Saturday mornings.
Sometimes it’s where I like to go – even with a house chockers with food and no special shopping needs pressing.
Outside the food areas, it’s fun to pick out the genuine products and bargains, shining like diamonds amid vast spaces of general all-round tackiness.
Loving Earth chocolate uses agave syrup instead of cane sugar and is described as “essentially uncooked, unprocessed chocolate in its pure rich essential form”.
Market Lane Coffee, adjacent the market food hall, is a Serious Coffee Establishment. I like my cafe latte and I like the passion of their endeavours.
There’s one at Prahran Market, too.
