Strathfield Good Food Guide : Food Guide 2011
Food Safari Our intrepid reporter Mark Chipperfield braves the culinary jungle of the Inner West where the hot and spicy things are Brought to you by Kia Rio f you accept the dictionary definition of a safari as “an overland expedition or hunting trip” then Flemington markets at 7.15am on a Saturday (keen hunters are here when it opens at 6am) is the obvious place to begin our gourmet expedition. It may be gloomy outside but Building D is alive with a thousand voices and the aroma of farm fresh produce, which is arranged on trestle tables, piled in boxes on the concrete floor or endlessly trundled around by forklift trucks. There’s so much fruit and veg that it spills out the side of the building into a busy laneway – this is where you’ll find Asian market gardeners selling fresh herbs, watercress, truss tomatoes and lettuce. They may have been up since the crack of dawn but these growers, many wearing traditional leather aprons, are boisterous and brimming with good humour.
