Spring adventure to Bulli

Bulli Markets

Do yourself a favour this weekend – get out of the city, pay a gold coin donation and receive a pleasant welcome to spring in return.

The sun is warming up, the days are longer, and you need a break from the grey chill of the city. In an attempt to break out, why not venture about an hour and a half down the coast to visit the Bulli foragers farmer’s and artisan markets.

This newbie on the market scene (the first market held in July) has a great mixture of whimsy and practicality. Every Sunday the farmer’s markets pack a warehouse area with rural produce from the South coast. Come and grab your fruit and vegies, sample some honey, bread, and nuts from the friendly stallholders. Indulge in a gelato milkshake from the pines Kiama and as you stroll along at sunday pace.

The second sunday of every month the markets double in size to include a range of artisan stalls. Here you’ll find markets staples like candles, boutique clothes, jewellery and books paired with some unique treats. Don’t miss the Miss Bowerbird caravan shop, a little turquoise caravan which houses a little shop filled with knick-knacks and the most beautiful, sun soaked presentation – reminiscent of an idyllic beach cottage (a little nostalgia for those counting down the days until summer).

A trek down Princess Highway is sure to leave you a little peckish. Vietnamese pho? Easy. Turkish falafel wraps? Done. Food trucks are also around the grounds to provide you with traditional market sausage sizzles. A little gem hidden away is the steep and sip Devonshire tea room. Think white picket fences, little chairs and a milk and sugar station. The perfect place to rest after perusing the markets.

 

What are you waiting for? Get down to the markets this weekend!
