The Mt Albert Market is located in the forecourt of Sprout Café, on 847 New North Road. This is handy, – utilising Sprout’s window server for coffee and outdoor bench seating for the market visitors. This also means the market is outdoors but under cover and intimate. There is reasonable parking along the nearby streets.
This is a community food market covering the gamut of grocery staples to treats. The range is perfectly edited and great quality; the organisers have included passionate artisan food producers who care about their products.
Some of my favourites are here; I love Salmon Man’s salmon gremolata, and the truffle Brie from Over the Moon is absolutely indulgent.
The list of products and purveyors when I visited last week included:
Baked goods from Scratch Bakers
Smoked salmon from Salmon Man
Meats from Neat Meat
Artisan cheese from Over the Moon
Cakes from Love Bites
Flowers from La Femme Fleur
Ready to eat – rice paper rolls, pizza Napoletana, bacon and egg baps
I was impressed how well the market is set up. Keeping to one vendor for each food type provides the range for a small venue. Their Facebook page advises of new and occasional vendors. In the past, artisan popcorn and mozzarella producers have attended as well as various buskers.
