Why not try a bit of everything, degustation style
Operating for a number of years out of the grounds of Subiaco Primary School, the Subi Farmer's Markets is one of Perth's oldest and best-loved weekly markets, with a wealth of stalls selling everything from fresh fruit and veg, fish and meats, organic and gluten free goodies, eggs, spices and more breads and mouth-watering sweet treats than should be legal.
Everyone knows that you can buy your weekly fruit, veg and meat supplies, but one other attraction of the markets is the number of stalls offering breakfast (or brunch) from across the globe. You can literally hop from one continent to the next tasting breakfast goodies. And if the choice is too much, why not bring a friend, and turn your Saturday morning into a breakfast degustation?
Most people need a coffee or juice to start the day, and luckily you have both options at the market. Luke does a roaring trade at the Coffee Shack or you can buy freshly squeezed orange juice (or lemonade) for $5 medium/$8 large from Alive Juice. If you prefer chai ($4), lassi ($8) or dairy free smoothies ($7) then pop over to Chai Baba for your fix.
One fabulous looking option for those with a decent appetite is the Chef's Special pancake from Le Crepe Chocolate. For $15 you get a mammoth filled crepe filled with a heap of toppings including roast pumpkin, pesto, haloumi, spinach, eggs, bacon, chorizo, mushrooms and hollandaise sauce. It looked delicious, but there are smaller versions ($12) which just have a few of those ingredients such as the Florentine (eggs, mushroom, spinach and hollandaise) or one with roast pumpkin, spinach, pesto and haloumi.
You also have the choice of nine or so sweet crepes including traditional lemon and sugar ($5 small/$7 large), honey and banana ($8) and Mars Bar crepe ($7).
If all of this is sounding too much and you want something healthier, then you can always select the hippy bircher muesli or organic crumpets ($6) from Mr Drummonds Foods or frozen yoghurt from Moo Cow which can be blended with a range of ingredients from granola to FrootLoops or Oreos ($4.50-$6).
Once you have selected your breakfast(s) then it's a matter of finding a space in the communal seating area on benches, stools and chairs under the shady tree, balancing your paper plate on your lap and your coffee wedged between your feet. Smile at the babies in the prams and pat the friendly local dogs. Bump into neighbours or make some new friends.
