The early morning breeze brings with it whispers of the past, a historic venue that holds close timeless memories of hosting the prestigious Royal Easter Show. Now, over 100 years on, The EQ Showring is revisiting its roots by reinvigorating its Village Markets with an abundance of fresh produce, straight from the farm.
“We’re bringing country to the city in the most direct and exciting way,” says Lindsay Frazer, Market Manager at the EQ Village Markets, “The Village Markets is set to become a cornucopia of fresh produce, meat, fruit and vegetables, organic produce and artisan treats direct from the farmers and gourmet chefs who grow and make the product.”
According to Lindsay, people can now enjoy the experience of shopping directly from the farmer in a personal and inspiring way, guaranteed to have visitors heading home with new recipe ideas and exciting foods to try.
With business partner Phillip Taylor, the pair are bringing their knowledge from their award-winning Beaches Market to the EQ to reinspire, transform and excite the store holders and shoppers alike and create a bustling hub of deliciousness, fashion and wellness all under canvas.
As the very first outdoor supermarket of the eastern suburbs, the EQ Village Market is also expanding its store holder offering to include a complete section dedicated to health and wellness. Gluten-free bakers, Egganic eggs, kombucha tea, raw nuts and organic growers will be showcasing the latest trends and tastiest produce in the wellness one-stop shop of the east.
“Two hours free undercover parking, widened space between stalls for easy pram access and plenty of children’s entertainment, the Village Markets is a great getaway for busy mums. It’s a place to indulge in freshly brewed coffee, cakes and other savoury treats,” says Lindsay, “or even better, buy a bunch of exotic flowers from the famous Mayfarm flower stall.”
The EQ Village Market is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 9am – 2pm and is located next to The Showring, in a fully undercover area. The Village Markets is the place to find your pantry staples, enjoy gourmet and indulgent produce and do your weekly shop.
