The markets are best known for the tantalizing food from different cuisines globally, wines from the finest vineyards and cold frothy beers. All this happens against the background of live entertainment, making this the ideal plan for the weekend whenever you are in the city.
Aptly described as the foodie’s heaven, there’s just about something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you’d like to satisfy your sweet tooth craving with delicious donuts, or prefer to stuff up on Gourmet burgers, or perhaps seafood to take on a new gastronomic experience, the street markets are your go-to place.
Other foods on offer include Mexican dishes, good old noodles, delectable chocolate fondue as well as German sausages to pack you up after an amazing city tour. Do not miss out on the Japanese Pizza and Italian Pasta – it is clear a culinary adventure awaits you when you take a trip to these famous markets.
Place your choice order of drinks, selecting from any of the following: beers, wines or juices and smoothies. The latter is perfect for those who would like to maintain sobriety while making the best of their trip. Boutique beers add an interesting twist to the trip; these are beers whose formula has been tweaked to create delicious flavors.
Sample the live entertainment on location. This allows you to delve into Brisbane’s culture while effortlessly creating an opportunity to mingle with the locals. For many travellers looking for new experiences, nothing beats learning from the city’s own while enjoying a fun-filled vacation.
Eat Street Markets is packed with facilities designed to make the trip as enjoyable as possible. Special diet is available for visitors who are allergic to gluten, as well as for vegans. While these options are available, it does help to make advance plans and ensure that you know the specific vendors who offer these services.
One of the causes for concern for many visitors is the weather aspect seeing as Eat Street Markets is held in the outdoors. The good news is that the organizers have made it possible for visitors to indulge at the market in virtually all kinds of weather save for extreme weather forecast. For this reason, be sure to check the website as your travel date approaches.
Other facilities include accessible washrooms, baby changing facilities as well as ample parking (although you should be aware parking does get full on busy weekends, so you want to arrive early). In recent news, the Eat Street Markets has introduced a Drive-in facility that allows visitors to take on a whole new dining + cinema experience.
