I'm a new writer living in North Brisbane.

A lack of forward planning, and Queensland's bizarre trading laws, can result in a 5pm panic on a Sunday night at our house. With most supermarkets shutting up shop by 6pm at the weekend, where can you go to access a decent selection of groceries after hours?

Obviously there is always Spar, Night Owl, etc. for the emergency milk and bread run. But, what if you need a bigger selection and aren't too keen on inflated convenience store prices?

These are the three spots that get me through in case of a severe ingredient emergency. Where are yours?

24 hour Woolworths at Skygate, Brisbane Airport
24 hour Woolworths at Skygate, Brisbane Airport

Woolworths Skygate, Brisbane Airport
Village Centre, 1 Airport Drive, Brisbane Airport 4007

Hallelujah! Brisbane actually has one 24 hour supermarket. The Woolworths at Skygate, Brisbane Airport opened in July and offers everything you could expect from a good sized chain supermarket.

Catering for shift workers, insomniacs and the chronically disorganised, Woolies never shuts it's doors which makes it my number one choice.

Clayfield Markets Fresh

Clayfield Markets Fresh
Cnr of Sandgate Rd & Junction Rd, Clayfield 4011

Open from 6am - 7pm every day this is my local emergency shopping venue. It's not so much a late night option but the 6am start is great for weekend breakfast supplies. What's more, this place has fresh produce displays that are so immaculate they verge on perfection. There is also a great selection of flowers at pretty reasonable prices.

Stafford Road Fresh
Stafford Road Fresh

Stafford Road Fresh
2/201 Stafford Rd, Kedron QLD 4031

This friendly little greengrocers should have everything you need in a culinary emergency and is open from 6am until 8pm every day.

So where do you get your emergency groceries from?

Foodworks at Loganholme.
Open 24/7.

It's a full size supermarket and prices are reasonable.

I think Brisbane should have a 24/7 Woolworths in Brisbane city not the airport because not everyone has a car.
