Bondi Sunday Weekly Markets
01 Dec 2013Bondi Markets get packed but they are still worth a visit. Be prepared to be tempted by distinctive designer products unique to the local lifestyle. The attitude of the stall holders doesn’t alienate and some let you barter, though prices aren’t over the top, and the wares are current and attractive.
If you like old junk it’s there or you might prefer refurbished fashionable antique, imported furniture from the East or works of local artisans. Young designers display their latest fashion lines at non-trendy prices, and while some second-hand clothing dealers are hip to demand, others are free and easy. Alternative stalls are big, so are Eastern, and there’s the reliable down-home chutney stall.
Apart from that, there’s no food to speak of but you’ll find vendors wandering around with baskets, if you’ve got any money left that is.
