Foodies are always on the look out for new and interesting foods to sample, restaurants to try, and basically have a wealth of knowledge on the subject.
And in recent years, there has been an increasingly popular and growing trend of food markets, which often line a closed off section of a street, and offer various kinds of food and treats to make even a non-foodies mouth water over how good they look and smell.
Fortunately, these food markets are popping up all over the place, with each Australian state or territory offering at least one of them each week or month.
To find out where a food market is, and when it is happening, in your hometown, visit this website and their Instagram and Twitter pages to keep up-to-date with what they’re doing.
And if you still need convincing of why food markets are cool and why you should visit them, even if it means travelling (what a bother that would be!), check out this video from Perth’s largest street food market, Sydney’s Paddington Market, and Tasmania’s Salamanca Markets (which I know isn’t strictly a ‘food market’, but it’s still pretty great).
