I visited the Avondale markets for the first time on sunday, and it is awesome. I cant stop kicking myself. Not only is it tones cheaper, but there is such an amazing selection of fruit, veggies, herbs and fresh fish. I think the market has ruined me for ever taking another step in a Countdown or New world. I was a bit overwhelmed this morning so only got an armful of goodies, but the crazy thing is all the produce in the photo below was roughly $10, it would of cost me near $30 at any supermarket.
Before I had kids, I'd love a Sunday morning wander through the Avondale Markets, picking up cheap fresh fruit and veg, exotic herbs and spices for spicy meals, and even a beaten up cheap old washing machine that did us proud for 9 years! These days we eat fish fingers rather than beef rendang, but the kids are now old enough to enough the sights and smells so I reckon some family trips are on the cards!
