Residents in Brisbane’s western suburbs can now buy their produce straight from the farmer/producer at The Gap Farmers’ Market.
Goat pies, pastured eggs, organic citrus, Tasmanian lamb and apple jelly are just a few of the products you’ll find at the new farmers markets at The Gap.
Located in the spacious playing fields of The Gap State School on the corner of Waterworks and Settlement Roads, the market is filled with tempting food, produce and fun with over 70 stalls.
The market is organised by The Gap Resident’s Association, an independent, not-for-profit group focused on enhancing The Gap and Erica and John Parker, who also created the Moggill Markets, which are actually held at the Brookfield Showgrounds.
You’ll find many of your favourites from other markets at The Gap including The Goat Pie Man, Brathaus with their bacon and egg rolls, local seafood and Tasmanian lamb. There’s also plenty of local baked treats, soaps, a blacksmith with curious creations made with horse shoes for sale, and tea and coffee to enjoy. While obviously not farm produce, there are also Himalayan salt lamps, body products, costume jewelleryand kid’s clothing.
Make sure you come hungry as there’s plenty here to eat. Try the Hungarian langos, Turkish gozleme steamed dumplings, or unleash your inner Brit and indulge a the Wemsley’s British stall selling branston sausage rolls, cornish pasties, scotch eggs, pork pies, eccles cakes and bakewell tarts.tornado potatoes,
This is an easy market to navigate but the primary school influence is strong and it’s is filled with strollers and young children. So find yourself a hay bale and a cup of coffee and relax with your Sunday breakfast while listening to the market’s live entertainment.
Parking can be a bit of a challenge and you might have to walk a while to get to the market’s entry gates. And don’t take the dog – it’s not a dog friendly market.
The market operates on the second and fourth Sundays of the month and opens at 6.30 am. The next market is Sunday 10 August.
