Our last stop in Canberra on The Boys birthday weekend is the Old Bus Depot Markets. To be perfectly honest this little side-trip is more for me than The Boy. I'd read briefly about the markets somewhere or other and as I love a good market we agreed to do a whirlwind visit before heading back to Old Sydney Town.
In retrospect it seems a little silly that I had NO idea this was a rather large food market. At least half of the enormous old bus depot is given over to fresh produce, organic goods, baked treats, jams and so on. The other half of the depot houses craft and clothing for those not interested in food (do people like that exist)?
As soon as we walked into the market I was kicking myself that we'd had such a big breakfast at Gus'. There were so many tasty looking things that I wanted to try but I was just too full to even contemplate anything more than a Salted Caramel Macaron and a freshly squeezed OJ (both of which were delicious)!
We wandered around for a while and our breakfast settled enough for us to try a few olives, nuts, pizza, breads and dips that the stallholders had on offer. The olives were wonderful so we bought a tub of Za'atar Olives to bring home as well as some cashew nuts.
The Old Bus Depot Markets can be found at 21 Wentworth Avenue, Kingston, ACT. They can be contacted on (02) 6295 3331 or obdm.com.au. The markets are on each Sunday between 10am - 4pm. Be there or...go hungry!
