I Heart Kirribilli Market!

Kirribilli market is the best market in Sydney in terms of the variety of stall holders & convenience. It sells secondhand or brand new clothes, make up, skincare, food, hand made cakes & pastieries, fruits & vegies, & flowers. It seems to me that not many Sydney Fashionistas know about it. Maybe because it's up towards the North Shore, and you have to cross the Harbour Bridge to go there by car. Or maybe because it doesn't open every weekend & has a tricky calender system (only open every 2nd Sunday & 4th Saturday of the month, with the last one being yesterday - Saturday the 23rd of July 2011).

As Sydney hosts many Australian designers headquarters, there's more people who work in the Fashion industry that live here. Some lucky people get their designers gears for free, or heavily reduced (up to 80% off retail price for faulty items). That explains why many fashionistas brace the cold weather to come here as early as 7AM, hoping to get their hands on designer pieces at such a low price. One time when I was there few months ago I bought few designer items things off the ladies from the biggest Fashion PR company in Australia, Marie Claude Mallat :)   

It's in Milson Pt, next to Luna Park. Conveniently located underneath Milson Pt train station, it can be easily reached by train (catch a North Shore line). It can be a challange to find a car spot there though. Below I took a picture with Luna Park in the background. Bought the vintage sunnies for $5. 

with my sister, we both wearing Lover coats at the same time by coincidence :)

List of my favourite food stalls:
  • The Dutch poffertjes/ Dutch pancakes dessert $9 for pancakes with the lot (cream & ice cream)
  • The Japanese Okonomiyaki (savoury pancake), the stall run by the Japanese as they're 2 of them selling the same pancake
  • Indian pancake, with curried potato & cheese inside, dipped in sweet chilly sauce.
  • Sugar cane juice (very rarely available though)
