Eat, drink and relax at Kuraby Markets
The sourdough bread to die for is at Kuraby Markets.

I can see I will now have to go the Kuraby Market weekly. They have several types of sourdough bread - all delicious but the one covered in seeds is totally addictive. I just eat with a little butter as it would be sacrilege to diminish the taste with any topping.
I took half a loaf to my daughter and was scolded for eating most of it myself. Well, ... it's quite nice.

This sourdough should come with a warning. It's Addictive!

Even though the market is new, I already have my favourite route.
First the bread - they sometimes sell out.

Secondly I make a stop at the coffee van. The husband made the whole rig himself with valuable design input from his wife. It's amazing. The counter pulls out around the van and then fold in on itself and fits into a shelf under the van. Super clever. If the queue is too long there are several other venues selling coffee.

No market visit is complete without a coffee.

My next stop is the unwaxed apples, picked weekly at Stanthorpe. They are so crisp and fresh, you won't be able to resist after you've had a taste.

Sample these crisp delicious apples.

Then round the back for a bundle of fresh herbs. On the way I can get an amazing array of mushrooms. Last week it was portobellos. Delish.

Many varieties of mushrooms are availalble.

The aroma of fragrant herbs will draw you in.

Several stalls have reasonable priced flowers. Late in the day I bought 2 bunches of freesias and got my second bunch at half price.

Flowers form here have lasted over a week.

There are plenty of places to sit and eat. I was favourably impressed with the trouble that has been taken to make these areas attractive and welcoming.

I have yet to try the honey, the olives, the fish van, the juice bar or any of the food stalls.
Fresh seafood.

Check out the meat stall just to meet the crazy owners in lairy cowboy hats, selling "viagra beef".

These guys are a side show of their own.

Then there's clothing, crafts, wooden items, and dog biscuits that look good enough to eat!

I was so tempted to try these dog biscuits.

I saw one young man, so impressed with his wife's newly trimmed eyebrows that he had his own done!

Exhausted - have a massage.

Before you go home ...

Other great features - endless car parking, a shady park and playground for the kids right next door.

Plenty of car parking... or catch the train.

Dad can mind the kids in the park while you shop!

Make a day of it next Saturday.
