A Harbour Bazaar: The Rocks Markets
Escaping to The Rocks is like stepping through the wardrobe; a charming, inviting place away from the hustle and bustle of the city where so many delights await. Meander along The Rocks historic cobblestoned laneways right next to the Harbour and find the hidden treats that await.
The Rocks Markets, held on Saturdays and Sundays 10am – 5pm, support local independent artisans, crafters and artists, and give them a supportive place to sell their wares. From fashion by emerging designers, handmade jewellery and woodcraft, to beautiful fabrics, organic candles and skin treatments, children’s toys and even gifts for your pets, there’s something here for everyone. Whether it be a gift for that special someone, or a gift for that even more special someone (that’s you!) you’ll find it at The Rocks Markets.
Give a gift to the senses too, and in particular your darling tastebuds, at The Rocks Friday Foodie Market, 9am-3pm. There’ll you’ll be greeted by the rich aroma of sizzling food like gozleme and mouthwatering burgers, the stunning sight of handmade gelato, the delicious flavour of artisanal chocolate melting in your mouth. Play tug o’ war with chewy, spicy biltong (an air-dried delicacy similar to – but better than! – beef jerky; sample chef-made condiments like jam, relishes, and dukkah; get your laughing gear around a roast pork roll with mouthwatering crackling; nibble daintily on a mini cupcake that’s big on flavour.
So get away, and treat yourself to something a little different.
