Made a trip to the saturday morning farmers market, which is a short 10 minute walk from the redfern train station.

The main reason of the visit was to have breakfast at Kylie Kwong's stand, Billy Kwong. Had the steamed pork bun which was just sensational, and dumplings, which were ok but hard to eat as the skins were quite large. Really wanted to try the savory pancakes which looked stunning.

Plenty of other great produce at this market, well worth a visit, even for tourists.

Visited here to see all the lovely organic/bio dynamic produce on offer and to also meet Kylie Kwong, whose restaurant we had dined out the night before. Lots of goodies on order, from Kylie's chinese pancakes to organic yoghurt, meats, cheese, fudge, coffee. We arrived at 8am and literally within 1/2hr it was packed. Very little seating provided to eat/sip a coffee, which was a huge negative for me. Toilets were inside the Carriageworks building. I don't understand why people have to take dogs to food markets - as literally on queue a couple of canines got into a tussle. A 5 min walk from Redfern station - easy peasy!!

Outstanding arts and cultural centre with top class shows and exhibitions BUT let down by less than ordinary cafe and woefully disinterested and sullen bar and waiting staff. Maybe it was a bad day with 2 or 3 tables filled, but service, food quality and empathy for my elderly parents who got a bit confused with their order was rock bottom, very sorry to say.
