Cambridge Markets EQ
Time Out says
Every Wednesday and Saturday you can pick up a bag of crunchy carrots, loaf of warm sourdough and an armful of flowers at EQ’s Cambridge Markets. The Entertainment Quarter has been home to a fresh produce and arts and crafts market for 20 years, and in 2018 market experts Madelienne Anderson and Rebecca Fox took over the show, adding EQ to their list of market spaces around Sydney, from Watsons Bay to Cronulla.
There are about 40 stallholders at each market peddling gourmet cheeses, ripe cherry tomatoes and piping hot gozleme. It’s a broad mix of retailers, from fruit and veggie stalls to children’s clothing and French linen.
The Markets are back in action after the mass government shutdowns, but if you can't make it down to grab your haul, you can still order fresh food and flowers for home delivery on Wednesdays and Saturdays from the Cambridge Markets website. Place your order by noon on Tuesday for Wednesday delivery, or by noon Friday for a Saturday order. You can also get your hands on certified organic fruit and vegetable boxes from from Block11 Organics, third-generation farmers with farms in central western New South Wales and the Hawkesbury.
There's no beating the community vibe of getting down to the markets in person, however. No matter what day you visit, there are picnic benches all around the all-weather market where you can sip a coffee and soothe a hangover. Kids love the pony rides that are often available on weekends and there’s heaps of parking in Moore Park.
