What is it?
A new weekend street-food based market located in Coburg, features food trucks as well as street-food stalls. Each weekend comprises of mostly different street-food vendors, as well as a few art and craft stalls and sellers of fresh produce.
The weekend I attended, had vendors such as:
N2 Extreme Gelato
Yarra Valley Strawberries
Treat Yo Self Quesadilla Cart
Hatful of Steam Woodfired Pizza
Around $7- $15, but average is $10
14-22 Gaffney Street every Saturday and Sunday, from 9am until 3pm.
Public transport accesible
A lot of these congregational places for street food vendors are popping up all over the place (Yarraville, Queen Vic), I think it’s nice to have one on the North side for once, for us North Siders
Parking: The traffic along Gaffney St is terrible, especially when the traffic lights take a considerable amount of time to change for pedestrians.
There’s a carpark located on the grounds, however, its difficult to maneuver and gets busy
I recommend parking in a side street or catching public transport
Would you go back?
Yes I would! Just to see the variation in street vendors each weekend
Pick your weekends: was looking forward to Koba and The Brûlée Cart, which was no where to be found 😦
Having a small stomach: when you get there you just want to try EVERYTHING, and I was disappointed that that couldn’t happen
Go early: I arrived at around 10am and stay till 1pm which was good timing as most people were arriving when I was leaving. Although, you don’t really get that market vibe, when there’s only a small amount of people there, I’d rather go through that, than wait in line for 15 mins for my food
