Shop the best of the region at Wandering Cooks’ Urban Produce Market!

Saturdays are for supporting local growers and producers.

Fish Lane’s Wandering Cooks has long been a hub dedicated to uniting regional growers and producers with food-lovers. Heck, some of Brisbane’s most loved eateries started at Wandering Cooks, including El Planta, NYC Bagel Deli, Pie Town and Alphabet Cafe.  

Now it’s your turn to shop like a chef from Saturday, August 22, when Wandering Cooks launches their weekly Urban Produce Market!

Head straight to the Farm Gate for produce from the same farms that supply to some Brisbane’s best restaurants like West End’s Little Acre Mushrooms, Spring Lakes Farm, Oxley’s Neighbourhood Farm, and Thai Hoa Grocer

Wandering Cooks’ food production manager Nims Zavackas will have a bunch of zero-waste preserves and ferments on offer, utilising market produce leftovers and excess backyard and farmer offerings, and the team from Wandering Cooks will be on hand to assist you with all of your produce queries, including what to do with some of the more unusual fruits, veggies and preserves you may come across! 

Pop-up eateries will ensure you’re fed and caffeinated, including coffee from Small Batch Roasting,  juice and ready-to-eat offerings by Wandering Cooks, and artisan pastries and breads from the Tweed Valley’s The Bread Social. Following recent border closures, this will be your only access to those cult bakery goods! 

Popping up at Wandering Cooks every Saturday from 7 am to 1 pm, the Urban Produce Market offers Brisbanites a deeper look into where their produce comes from, and the opportunity to purchase it directly from local growers and producers. That’s certainly something we can all get around.

Hey, supporting local looks good on you!


Keeping The G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally collaborate with local businesses we love, like this one.
