Perth’s fave markets are back this season with all new winter delights.
Winter can be a real drag- what is one to do with themselves apart from rug up in bed and binge watch your favourite Netflix shows? Well lucky for us Scarborough Sunset Markets are curing those winter blues with their new 2021 winter season.
Every Saturday afternoon 3pm to 8pm from the 5th of June Scarborough will be transforming into a cozy winter sanctuary with all your market favourites plus some new additions providing the perfect excuse to get the crew together and brave the cold to go and check it out.
Say goodbye to Autumn and hello to Winter with gooey hot cheese, fresh crispy bread and an abundance of mulled booze all on the iconic Scarborough beachfront- this is one you won’t want to miss!
So, What can you expect?
We can all agree that cheese and bread are a necessary and essential part of life, and what could possibly be better than hot melted cheese inside a fresh woodfired loaf of bread. Get excited because your local baking guru Ben from Bread Crust WA will be joining the market gang and whipping up loaves of organic seeded sourdough with a gooey centre of creamy cheese from Halls Family Dairy and baked in a woodfired oven – the perfect treat to share with friends around the fire or eat all to yourself (no judgements here). You can find it at The Fire Truck Pizerria stall every Saturday.
Of course all your favourite foodies will be back to bring you soul-warming bites and sweet delights. Carina’s Kitchen will be serving up vegan pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls, Piadina Bar has got a warm homemade mushroom arancini loaded with truffle oil and you can try a delicious slow cooked stew at Monty’s Bus Stop Cafe, just to name a few.
The markets will feature an intimate cozy bar around the Scarborough Clocktower thanks to the local Sandbar team and will be serving up locally crafted winter drinks with plenty of rich mulled wine to warm your insides.
But that’s not the best part, three local and loved Scarbs businesses will be joining forces in an exclusive WA first to bring you a brand new boozy booch. Hippie Kombucha, one of Perth’s original brewers, has teamed up with Whipper Snapper Distillery and local veterans The Sandbar to create the Upshot Boozy Booch. Inspired by the Scottish ‘Hot Toddy’ this is sure to make those cold nights a little more bearable and is a must try for booze lovers.
Don’t worry about getting to cold because there will be custom-made fire pits all around to fight the chill- and what would a fire pit be without plenty of marshmallows ready for roasting so you can eat s’mores until your hearts content.
Beats from local market DJ’s will provide the perfect soundtrack as you browse the retail stalls with everything from vintage clothing, handmade candles, eco homewares and more.
Time to grab your gloves and beanies and get ready to head down for winter fun and a whole lot of food and booze.
