Catch these zucchini fritters sparkling in the sun
I had heard stories about a marvellous zucchini fritter that is cooked at the Magill Sunrise Markets, so I just had to call in to satisfy my curiosity. And I am glad I did because I found a lot more than I have bargained for.
Those who have read my articles before know that coffee is always my first stop, and what better coffee makers are there than Bodri's Chimney Cake Station. The popular Hungarian food truck took pride of place amongst the car park, and provided me with one of their typically warm, smooth and consistent coffees to savour while I combed the market stalls for a bargain.
The Magill Sunrise Market, organised by the Rotary Club of Magill, is an eclectic bunch of market stalls that gather together on the second Sunday of every month at the Campbelltown Library car park on Montacute Road. Stallholders include the regulars selling their homemade beads, jewellery, kids clothes, jams, preserves and biscuits with some impromptu stall holders selling some plants, shrub, clothes, opals, books and other fineries from their house that are no longer required.
The jewellery and beads from Ruby Red Beads attracted my attention for some time, while the Cornish pastries from the Farmhouse Bakery ended up in my takeaway bag alongside some all natural ointment cream from Florentine Gold of Kersbrook.
And taking centre stage at in the car park was the Rotary Club of Magill's barbeque stand with the traditional sausage sizzle, the 'sarnie' (bacon and egg sandwich) and the much talked about zucchini fritter. All dishes are cooked as ordered, and the size of the fritter means it takes a few minutes longer to get it perfect. And perfect it was - a delicious mixture of zucchini combined with a pancake style batter to deliver a mouth watering fritter. And just because I was hungry, I must say that the 'sarnie' was also tasty, and at $3.50 was the best value sandwich I have had for some time.
The Magill Sunrise Market is open from 8am to 12noon on the 2nd Sunday of every month with regular updates on their facebook page. Make sure you get on down and grab a bargain - and if not, grab yourself a fritter, you won't regret it.
