French Markets - Parnell

If you have a few spare dollars head over to the French market in Parnell on a Saturday morning. It has a fantastic atmosphere and an incredible selection of fine bakery and deli food to tempt your tastebuds. Try the almond croissants with a coffee or even the euro style hotdogs. There are freshly baked eclairs, biscuits, cheeses, cured meats and a thousand other delights. A warning though, it's not cheap!
I'm crap with addresses but if you google it I'm sure you'll find it!

Ok, I've just arrived home from the French markets. If you want the worlds finest almond croissants, get there before 10.30am.... they sell out quickly! Great coffee, great food, beautiful people to perv at, jazz music. Bliss.

Ooooh. Sounds fantastic! I have always been curious as to what this market is like. Sounds fantastic. Are the prices expensive? How much would a legendary Almond Croissant cost me? ;)

I must sus these markets out in town, are there any other ones that are a must see? Have you been to the britomart one before?

Well, it's not cheap... the almond croissants are $4.50, with coffee the same, which is average. BUT, the flavour, the melt-in-your-mouth yumminess, the warmth, the whole environment, encrusted with Parnell's sexiest residents more than makes up for it.
Plus, you get to wander round the stalls, tasting the freshly made garlic salt, the homemade cheeses and the real salamis...the breads, the dips, the jams... it's a wonderful experience and well worth it.
The Britomart? Isn't that a train station? Just kidding, I've heard good things but haven't been there yet.


Haha cheers, sounds good as.

Yeah britomart area......not the train station ;)
