NEW: Keep your eyes on the pies

Sometimes it feels a little tough to get out of bed on a cold winter’s morning and head to Market. But we can assure you, it’s well worth it. Not only will you be met with an abundance of fresh, local and regional produce when you arrive, but we can warm you up with delicious, fresh and hot baked pies too.

Keep your eyes on the hot pies and grab one from one of several Market pie makers including Gum Tree Pies. These makers of handmade gourmet meat pies and sausage rolls offer piping hot pies in many varieties including Steak and Red Wine, Lamb and Mint Jelly, and Thai Green Curry pie.

And the pie warmers are always well and truly stacked over at Some Bakers . Crowd favourites on cool mornings include their Chicken and Leak pie, Steak and Pepper pie and Beef and Thyme sausage rolls.

The pies just keep coming at nearby Uncle Juan’s Bake House where locally made pies and sausage rolls sit dressed in their handmade light crispy pastry. Try the Black Angus pie, Slow Cooked Lamb pie, the Dahl and Rice Pie, and the Pork and Fennel sausage roll. These babies are bound to warm you up as you wander the Market, and we can assure you you’ll leave more than satispied!

NEW: The Sicilian Biscuit Company

How good are biscuits? And they’re even better when they’re high quality, handmade biscuits. Market newcomer, Adam Condipodero, knows all about biscuits of high quality. Having failed in his search for a taste of Sicily closer to home, he and two Canberra lads took a punt and the Sicilian Biscuit Company was born. They like to call themselves ‘purveyors of Sicilian Sweetness’ creating handmade biscuits in the Italian style including amaretto, pistachio, lemon, chocolate, coffee and cherry varieties.

Born from a passion for family, food, culture, and authenticity, Adam and the Sicilian Biscuit Company team just love sharing a little taste of Sicily with the people of Canberra and beyond.  All handmade pastries and biscuits are lovingly made from local ingredients, with most products both gluten and dairy free. You can take home a little piece of Sicily for yourself with these tasty biscuits available at the Market fortnightly at stand number 123.
