Take Dad to the Markets to Ride a Bucking Bull

The Grounds of Alexandria is the hippest and coolest cafe in Sydney right now. The owners have the perfect cafe formula - a beautiful space with a beautiful kitchen garden serving perfectly brewed coffee (that is roasted in-house) and sublime food.

As a result, the Grounds is constantly heaving with people and it can be somewhat difficult, especially on weekends to score a table without joining a huge queue.

If you haven't been lucky enough to visit this awesome venue, or if the queues put you off, why not head on down to Alexandria this weekend to check out their Father's Day Spring Market. On both Saturday and Sunday from 8am - 3pm a dazzling display of coffee, food, produce and flowers will be on display for you to purchase, all in time to stock up on goodies for Dad's big day.

This will be a family friendly weekend and if Dad isn't in to perusing market stalls than he can jump on the bucking bronco ride and do his best cowboy impersonation (the Dad who lasts the longest will score a Grounds Man Hamper) or Dad can get his mugshot taken in the photo booth with all his kids.

There will be all sorts of stalls where you can pick up Dad a last minute Father's Day gift. Maybe he would like something from the woodwork market stall, a candle from Citizens of the World candle makers, or something from the fabulous Italian providore salt, meats cheese.

If you are lucky enough to score a table in the cafe, enjoy a wonderful brunch, if not there are loads of options to be purchased from the market - how does a charcoal roast roll sound matched with a beautiful grounds take away coffee? You could always just pick up some fresh produce to takeaway with you and enjoy a Father's Day picnic somewhere in the beautiful Sydney sunshine that is forecast for the weekend.

Make sure before you leave that you go and say g'day to Kevin. No not Mr Rudd - I dare say he will be too busy campaigning - Mr Bacon actually. Kevin Bacon is the resident pig of The Grounds. He and a few other of his furry friends will be in the petting zoo which will delight kids of all ages. There will also be arts and crafts activities for the kids to participate in and live performances to entertain the whole family.
