It's in Newtown that you'll find some of Sydney's best locally brewed beer, most irresistible bakery treats and most flavoursome vegetarian sausages. To celebrate the suburb's delectable contributions to the city's foodie scene, the Newtown Good Food Fair is returning for a second year this Sunday, October 11. And this time, it's expanding.
Held as part of Good Food Month 2015 and organised by the Newtown Precinct Business Association, the event brings together more than 25 of Newtown's brewers, bakers, growers and chefs. These include Young Henrys, Black Star, Suzy Spoon's Vegetarian Butcher, Bloodwood, Mary's, Osteria de Russo & Russo, Miss Peaches Soul Food Kitchen and The Animal at the Newtown Hotel.
For your gustatory convenience, they'll all be gathering in three easy-to-reach spots: the Newtown Square, where the focus will be on food; the Whateley Street Car Park, where it'll be all about bars and food; and The Green Living Centre at Telstra Plaza, which will be dedicated to local produce, sustainability and the launch of the new Newtown Local Food Guide.
