As anyone following my posts knows, I prefer to shop at markets rather than supermarkets and big stores. It’s all part of my philosophy of supporting local businesses and giving the little guy a leg up. So now that I have a few weekends free, I’m making it my point to visit as many markets around Brisbane as I can. This weekend we visited the Boundary Street Markets in West End.

We got there after 2pm and as the market closes at 3pm, there wasn’t a lot of activity. But we picked up some lemon curd and handmade chocolates and got a few home decorating ideas that we might follow up on in due course.

We took some time out for a cup of tea at the West End Tea Co (Parisian grey for Maurie, chai latte for me) and shared a delicious salted caramel chocolate brownie.

The Boundary Street Markets are held every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday in and around the Motor Room, a live music venue. They’re quirky and colourful, as you’d expect in West End, and there’s a good mix of street food vendors and traders selling handmade, vintage and unique wares.

Where? Corner Boundary and Mollison Streets, West End, Brisbane.
When? Every Friday 4pm-10pm, Sat & Sun 9am-3pm.

P.S. I took the following two random photos just up the road from the markets. I’ve seen this bush with its bright orange blooms in a few places around Brisbane and am madly in love with it. The orange flowers and blue sky have not been photoshopped in any way. Welcome to winter in Brisbane!

    How West End has changed for the better since I lived there in the late 70s!

    What a joy it must be to be discovering markets in your new home in Brisbane. I wonder if they’ll be open when we pass through, would love a squiz, they look great!
