DFO Jindalee OPENS 16 November 2007!
Finally what everyone has been waiting for - the opening of the new DFO
(Direct Factory Outlet) at Jindalee. DFO Jindalee opens to the public
on 16 November 2007 at 16 Amazons Place Jindalee, Brisbane, QLD. It's
promised that at DFO Jindalee you'll find bargains of up to 70% off
Australian and International brands.
There are various food markets throughout Brisbane featuring organic fruit and vegetables, gourmet food and more!
Jan Power's Farmers Markets at the Brisbane Powerhouse is where the
person serving you has a direct link to their product. They must know
their product have raised, grown, cooked or crafted the product. Enjoy
cooking demonstrations, visiting chefs, and food tasting. Held every
1st & 3rd Saturday from 7am.
The Brisbane MarketPlace
Market at Rocklea has a wonderful range of fresh foods including fruit
and vegetables, seafood, meats, gourmet, deli and baked goods, as well
as fresh flowers, plants, lifestyle products and craft. The market is
held every Saturday from 6am until 12:00pm.
This is a market we now shop at regularly - at least on a fortnightly
basis. Why? Because the prices are so much cheaper than those at Coles
or Woolworths, the food is fresher, the sellers actually want to sell
to you and it's a much more pleasant way to shop due to the vibrant
atmosphere unlike the sterile environment in the two supermarket
To give you an idea of the bargains to be had, last week we bought
a plastic bag (about 5kg) of plums for just one dollar. They were sweet
and juicy and ready to eat. What do you do with so many plums? We made Honey Plum Jam, perfect for spreading on toast or drizzling over ice cream.
We also bought tomatoes for just 70cents a kilogram (which we blanched,
pureed and put in the freezer as a fresh alternative to canned peeled
tomatoes) and firm, plump eggplant for $1.99 a kilo (perfect for using
in a vegetable curry or moussaka). We also bought a plastic shopping
bag's worth of capsicum for just $2.00 a bag from which we made
delicious stuffed capsicum.
Apples can be bought for as little as 99cents a kilo (compared to over
$4.00 at Coles and Woolworths), ten mangoes on the soft side for $3.00
(the flesh of which we froze to be used in mango lassi's)
and potatoes for just a dollar a kilo. If you got after 11:00am, most
stall holders start to reduce their prices and this is the best time to
grab a bargain. So if you're willing to spend a little more time in
the kitchen cooking fresh, unadulterated food, Rocklea Markets is the
place to come.
North Pine Country Markets
at Petrie Town is Brisbane's oldest and most unique craft market. Set
in the a 19th century rural village the Markets include arts and
crafts, bric a brac, antiques and collectables, plants, unique gifts,
produce and great food. For the kids there are Train and pony rides,
puppet shows and bush poets. Held every Sunday from 8am.
