Ferry Road Market

Gourmet produce, ASSEMBLE! Like a Splendour mainstage or your housemate’s fridge shelf, Ferry Road was made for you frazzled folks who love variety but not the trudgery of to-ing and fro-ing. Go ahead, pick up a basket among treat-laden windows and shelves in a mini universe where your food-related daydreams have finally co-operated with real life.

Inspired by the James St Market of Fortitude Valley, Ferry Road is bright and bustling with Bill Granger culinary types. Start your adventure at Merlo Torrefazione (a bazillion bean blends to guzzle) then follow your nose to superior blooms at Fleurus and sourdough from Flour. Lunch like the locals at Reef Seafood & Sushi, and peruse boutique plots surrounding a fruit and veg market and Spendelove Bistro. There’s a tea emporium, confectioners, gelateria, deli and more. Drive off with a full boot and fist pump your quadrazuple win.
