Lazy Sunday brunching and lunching at The Market Street on Holland Street, behind the Gilles Street IGA and can be accessed via the IGA car park. 😉 At long last we made time to check it out on a much cooler day.
The Market Shed entrance
Housed under a humungo shed in the south end of the city is a bustling inner city market with a variety of stall holders selling handmade crafts, certified organic, seasonal, local, sustainable and ethical produce, coffee, food and drinks along with some live entertainment.
After browsing around the market, we settled at the Little Orange Arancini & Pizza Bar for a bite.
Breakfast pizza; $20.00
The corner stall had a short, sharp and very simple menu with two arancini options, two pizza options (the other being a margherita at $15.00) with bases made from organic Laucke Flour and polenta chips seasoned with murray river salt flakes and rosemary. We ordered the breakfast pizza and wandered around the markets some more whilst we waited for the pizza to be made. The breakfast pizza consisted of organic tomato sumo, fiore de latte, organic tomatoes, organic basil, pancetta, organic biodynamic beef sausage, garlic olive oil and a cracked egg. We both agreed that it could have had a bit more topping and done with more time in the oven for the base to crisp up but nevertheless, the flavours were simple and fresh. The centre of the pizza was on the soggy side as the cracked egg seeped through the dough and the sausages could have been sliced into smaller pieces as opposed to being left in large chunks so each bite of pizza base to sausage ratio could be much more even.
Definitely worth a gander for a lazy Sunday and news just in, they’re open until 3pm as opposed to their original time of 2pm. Great news for the late Sunday risers… an extra hour at the markets for you!
