The Perfect Sunday Market in Sydney - Imagehttps://www.kingscrossmarket.org
Surrounded by Elizabeth Bay, Rushcutters Bay and Potts Point, Kings Cross itself is vibrant and full of cafes, art-deco buildings and bars with numerous people streaming in from all corners of the globe daily to get a taste of this unique suburb.
However, if you're near Kings Cross on a Sunday – Make sure you stop by the Kings Cross Flower Markets, hosted by Organic Food Markets for your fix of fresh organic produce. It's a lovely way to start your Sunday, surrounded with the scent of fresh-cut flowers.

The markets are located around the picturesque El Alamein Fountain in Fitzroy Gardens, on Macleay Street, every Sunday, from 9:30 am till 2:30 pm.
The El Alamein Fountain – A refreshing meeting point and market location:
Robert Woodward designed the fountain, which opened in 1961, affectionately knows to some as the Dandelion. If there is a slight breeze the wind changes the look of the fountain, and the spray creates rainbows when hit with sunlight.
Flowers, plants and herbs: Pick up a fresh-cut bunch of flowers like a Cala Lily, Roses, Poppies, Gerberas, or a bunch of Australian natives. If you're after more exotic plants you'll find Bonsai house plants, succulents, potted fruit trees, seedlings, climbers or a quirky cactus or two. Pots are also available to buy for your purchases.

If you get peckish while wandering the stalls, you will be surrounded by plenty of food options just a few steps away in any direction. Grab yourself a passionfruit Portuguese custard tart or for something a little more substantial like a burger or gozleme.
