11 Aug Eagle Farm Markets
Located at the end of Racecourse Road, Ascot. The Eagle Farm Markets are a great way to spend a sunny Sunday morning. Starting at 7am until 12.30pm, an wide array of gourmet food, fresh fruit and vegetables and miscellaneous items like accessories, jewellery, face painting are offered. It’s a great idea to head down for breakfast, which is what we did. I was delighted to see a wide range of gluten free options in the gourmet food section, which is slowly becoming more popular.
I shared a gluten free Nutella and banana crepe ($5) and the Bad Boy Bacon and Eggs Rosti ($10). Each plate was awesome, and made fresh when we ordered. Other breakfast options include gourmet omelettes, an array of Lebanese foods, waffles, poffertjes (Dutch mini pancakes)and Asian soups (maybe for an early lunch?). As the markets are located at Doomben Racecourse, this means that there was ample space so that you could sit in the shade among other market goers, or wander over to the grandstand and relax in the sun. Even though they ask for a $2 entrance fee, I believe that it is worth it for a lovely morning outing to the Eagle Farm Markets.
