MACARTHUR AVE, HAMILTON WHARF
Opened on November 8, the bustling vibe and aromatic flavours of South-East Asian night markets will be brought to life in Brisbane with Eat Street Markets every Friday and Saturday evenings.
More than 50 shipping containers will set up shot on Hamilton’s Northshore, and will take shape in the form of mini-restaurants, bars, galleries and produce stores.
The brainchild of a bevy of unlikely Brisbane identities, Peter Hackworth, John Stainton, retail entrepreneur John Harrison, and media maven, Jacki MacDonald.
Lifelong friends with John and Peter, Jacki said it was great to be part of such a fantastic team and project.
“It’s exciting to see this street come alive with marketeers whose energy and passion for food creates an atmosphere that’s irresistible, “ Jacki says.
Every Friday and Saturday night, the containers will play host to an array of providores selling everything from fresh flowers to gelato, seafood, health food, woodfired pizzas, cocktails, arts and craft and more.
“Buying from our markets will mean you’re supporting local farmers, as well as eating freshly picked fruit and vegetables that are full of flavour. Our farmers will bring to Eat Street the likes of Granite Belt apricots, strawberries, apples and cherries just picked and packed hours earlier. “
“Markets, I believe will become a part of Brisbane like our mango trees and Moreton Bay Figs,” she says.
