I love this Market. It is truly eclectic. I found a dress designer,
Lindy Creeke, who does fabulous line 'Distant Travellers' one offs.
Lindy sold me a devine purple silk coat. Get there before she becomes
famous and costs heaps more. I found a nice spruiking butcher who does
hand made sausages who sold me properly corned beef; I found a spices
and organic food lady who sold me some lovely fat cardamom pods to put
in my morning coffee, and I found a lady who sold African inspired
clothing and accessories who sold me a had-to-have leopard skin print
silk scarf. This wasn't the end of it, you can find exotic jewellery,
you can find contemporary works by local artists; there is even a lovely
man who will make you some furniture, or, you can find antiques here,
as well as that tool you haven't been able to lay your hand on, like
special spanner. If all of this isn't enough, there is a lady there who
will read your Tarot cards.
The Ettalong Markets are open every
weekend and they also open on Public Holidays if that day is a Monday.
They claim to be the largest undercover market on the Central Coast. The
shops are interspersed with cafes, coffee shops and restaurants. The
traders consider themselves to be operating shops, rather than stalls,
so this creates a different and less urgent dynamic among them. The shop
holders are country folk, so they like a bit of a chat. That is a
special feature of this market.
Allow yourself at least two hours
to browse through the shops and leave enough time for a coffee and cake
at the end for show and tell time.
