Rainbow Dessert Lane
The Grounds of Alexandria will turn into an after-dark dessert market on Friday and Saturday nights this month.
Find a parking spot and follow the rainbow at The Grounds of Alexandria this Easter and you won't find a pot of gold — but you will find a whole lot of sugary treats. Which might be even better.
Each Friday and Saturday night from April 12–27 (except Saturday, April 20), The Grounds' garden will be lit up and turned into a dessert laneway. Sweet smelling carts will be hawking Nutella donuts, hot churros, house-made gelato sandwiches and ricotta and lemon beignets. Wander between them, grab a cocktail from the outdoor bar, and try the lot.
If you need savoury before your sweets, book a table for dinner at The Potting Shed. After a bowl of mussels and a few glasses of wine, it will be hard to say no to a hot jam doughnut. The market will run under The Grounds' neon rainbow Easter installation from 6–9pm.
UPDATE: APRIL 16, 2019 — The Grounds has this week cancelled its Saturday, April 20 market. This article has been updated to reflect that.
