Occurring weekly, fortnightly and monthly, you can wander through one of these great markets and stock up on your weekly supply of fresh fruit and veg, fresh pastries and hot coffee.

Located at Bondi Beach Public School, visitors can spend their Saturday morning amongst the scent of fresh produce, hot food, bakery items, flowers and gifts from various stallholders. Bringing the bush to the beach with seasonal, local and fresh items, you can enjoy the opportunity to take a morning dip in the ocean then head to the markets for breakfast and a quick shop while drying off in the warm sun. If you’re going their for brunch we suggest you try the Lyrebird Corn Fritters stall. There are always queues but for good reason, their corn fritter plates are delicious. They’re gluten-free and vegetarian, made using organic free-range eggs and Australian corn and come topped with homemade relishes, dukkah and caramelised maple balsamic.
