Fish, fit­ness on mar­kets menu

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Food - By JU­LIAN WRIGHT

THIS year’s In­gle­wood on Beau­fort Street Mar­kets kicked off last night, boast­ing about 150 stalls.

Or­gan­is­ers ex­pected big crowds for the launch of the Mon­day mar­kets, that will run on both sides of Beau­fort Street from Sixth Av­enue to Dun­das Road at the town clock, un­til the end of March.

Mar­kets founder and butcher Vince Gar­reffa said crowds of up to 5000 peo­ple at­tended dur­ing the 2015 sea­son. He said the de­ci­sion to hold the mar­kets on Mon­days re­ceived pos­i­tive feed­back from vis­i­tors.

He said it was also an op­por­tu­nity to ex­er­cise as well as en­joy healthy food. “It’s a great way to get ex­er­cise, not have to cook on a Mon­day night, eat healthily and go for a walk,” he said. “Up and back, both sides of the street is a com­fort­able kilo­me­tre stroll.”

This sea­son will fea­ture new stall hold­ers, in­clud­ing Josh Cata­lano from Cata­lano’s Seafoods and fish afi­cionado Stu­art Fer­gus­son with their new food truck The Fish Boss.

Meast pro­pri­etor San­dra Bah­bah will re­turn with Mid­dle Eastern fare such as falafel, hal­loumi cheese and Ara­bic rice made from scratch. She said there was a huge sense of com­mu­nity about the mar­kets last year.

The mar­kets run from 6pm to 9.30pm ev­ery Mon­day.

Vis­i­tors queue for food at one of the many stalls.
