I've blogged about the markets I visit in Malaysia and Indonesia so, its now Australia's turn. Usually, we shop at the supermarkets or at a Sunday Farmer's Market for organic stuff. Occasionally, we also go to the wholesalers market in Brisbane.
It is opened to the public from Wednesdays to Fridays from 9.30am. This is after the retailers have been in to buy their stuff so by the time the public gets in there, its just the leftovers. And from what I saw, all the leftovers are sold by 11am. There is a fee of AUD$5 per vehicle.
The problem with shopping there is that you have to buy everything by the boxes. Last Friday, we decided to drink more fresh juice and perhaps make some purees to freeze for Aaron. So, off we went.
The produce was definitely fresh and cheap. Take a look at some of these prices. They are for each of those boxes!
We ended up with oranges, carrots, avocados and bananas. You can see that Aaron has already broken into the banana box here.
I think we were a little greedy with that bag of carrots. It was only AUD$12 but I'm worried that we're all going to start looking a little orange soon! :)
