To market, to market, to buy a fat fig

I have three words to say to you. Fig jam doughnuts.
They were my brunch at the Saturday market at Ceres and they were fabulous. I absolutely love that place. We gathered up our motley collection of family bikes, drove to Brunswick, parked the car, and had a lovely ride along the Merri Creek to Ceres.
Locals will know it well, but for those who don’t, it’s a little slice of country, 5 minutes from the city. It was built on the site of a decommissioned municipal tip; and is now a gorgeous eco park and farm. Their market is on every Saturday and you can stock up on organic vegies, hand-made clothing, bric-a-brac (yes!) and craft.
The on-site cafe is fab too; shaded by tea trees, with a mega sandpit for the kids, and dogs are welcome. We met friends there for lunch and I tucked into a pumpkin, tofu and miso filo roll with salad; and a perfect coffee. The kids love the Ceres sausage rolls, which are plugged with vegies and brown rice, and served with home-made relish. There is also a permaculture nursery on site and big fat chooks mooching around. Heaven!

  1. Just read this and can’t tell youhow much I need a fig jam donut right now. Have about a tablespoon of Maggie Beer’s burnt fig jam in the fridge…

    • It is truly lovely Sophie, as is the produce. We always end up there on our bikes though, so not much room for carting veggies home. Plenty of room for fig jam donuts though…

    • You’ll love it Nel. There’s so much to explore there. I should’ve mentioned there are 2 cafes on site. The one in the photo is the market cafe. The larger cafe (with the filo rolls) is down the hill. Enjoy!

I love a chat!
