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.

What you'll find:

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.
