First it was the Cheese Festival. Then it was the Sausage Fest. And now Prahran Market completes the holy trio of meats, cheese and sweet things with a festival dedicated to dessert.
After two years dedicated to chocolate, 2018's edition will broaden the sugar spectrum to include desserts of all types. Melbourne's finest will be pulling out their most decadent dishes from 10am till 4pm on Sunday, May 6. This will include — are you ready for this? — everything from crepes and chocolate to sweet pies and doughnuts. Want more? There'll also be boozy dessert cocktails.
The market will become a dessert lover's dream with traders Wilson & Market, Q Le Baker, Sweet Greek, Paddlewheel and Fritz Gelato serving up a special offering on the say. Joining them will be market guests, including Knafeh Bakery and Christy Tania with Glacé.
This year's demonstrations will be taken up a notch too, with Kathy Tsaples from Sweet Greek, Christy Tania and the expert pastry chefs from Bibelot presenting every hour from 10.30am.
