Add wine and cheese to the list of yummy things you can taste at Eveleigh Markets.
Eveleigh Markets have always been about allowing Sydneysiders to buy and sample fresh produce and homemade food from regional NSW and ACT, things you might not get to try if you've never been to the region. It's not just about country farmers, though — Surry Hills-based celebrity chef Kylie Kwong has a regular stall at the markets as well, selling things like steamed Berkshire pork buns and organic green tea.
Now you can add wine to the list of yummy things you can try at the markets. This June, the markets are hosting Eveleigh Uncorked, a wine and cheese fair where over 40 wineries and 20 cheese, bread and olive producers will be showcasing their wares in the historic Blacksmiths Workshop.
After browsing the markets, you can taste wine from boutique wineries in Mudgee, Orange and the Hunter Valley, and there'll be plenty of specialised cheeses, olives and crusty sourdough on hand to go with it.
Eveleigh Market Manager Ariana Aljinovic says the event will "continue Eveleigh Market’s tradition of bringing the maker to the buyer and will be a wonderful opportunity for the Sydney community to learn more about the wine and cheese making process".
