Fitzroy's Rose Street has landed itself another weekly market, this time with a focus on real, honest locally produced food. Already home to the ever-popular Rose St. Artists' Market, it looks like this inner north strip is now your one-stop weekend shop.
Kicking off on November 25, The Fitzroy Mills Market is the brainchild of siblings Ari, Aphrodite and Chris Vlahos, pitched as a vibrant wellness event for locals and visitors alike. It'll make its home within the former manufacturing mill at 75 Rose Street, from 9am-2pm every Saturday.
Aimed at celebrating local farmers and connecting the community to their food growers and makers, the market will feature a curated selection of sought-after vendors, slinging a huge array of produce and artisan goodies direct to the public.
Get excited for the likes of coffee and seasonal dishes from nearby roasters Industry Beans, handmade artisan cheese from the Milawa Cheese Company, organic vegan and veggie creations from Bite Me Fine Foods, No Grainer's freshly baked gluten- and grain-free breads, and even healthy snacks for your pooch, courtesy of Canine Wellness Kitchen. There'll also be unique experiences on offer, including floristry tips from ethical Richmond florist Lilac and the Cat, and talks and demonstrations by local health coach Monica Yates.
