The Eagleby has landed: Distillery Road Market, opening 2020!

Catch us hopping off the M10, express-bound to mmmm town.

Sure, Logan, you’re the home of Savage Garden and Dami Im, but Australia’s next great food market? Now that’s music to our ears!

A little birdie has dropped the earworm that an old warehouse in Eagleby is set to transform into Queensland’s biggest marketplace under the brew-tiful name Distillery Road Market.

While currently a 17,000m² space full of foodie potential, real estate company Colliers International have confirmed that Distillery Road will soon be filled with a unique mix of retail, artisanal, and fresh produce stalls that take inspiration from the likes of London’s Borough and New York’s Chelsea Markets.

Being a lofty warehouse, it’s no wonder there’s such a giraffe in there–and yes, we mean giraffe! The space is already home to the headquarters of Zarraffa’s Coffee and its factory-concept Kiwanda Café, whose OG founder Kenton Campbell is the project developer for this exciting new precinct.

While the name of other big stalls setting up shop are shrouded in secrecy for now, Kenton has promised that fresh food markets, takeaway shops, restaurants, florists, an exhibition hall, a smokehouse, outdoor gardens, a stage, and a playground will definitely be in the mix.

In giving West End a run for its money, Eagleby’s eclectic selection of stalls and traditional market hours for Distillery Road (the precinct will be open on Thursdays-Sundays only) is sure to draw a diverse crowd, with a little something for every family, foodie, and market fiend.

In the market yourself for a warehouse bargain? Rumour has it that Distillery Road still has roughly 4500sqm of area left for some lucky local restaurant, stall, or café to snap up before this premium dining destination is all let out!

Already leaving a mark(et) on our foodie hearts, Distillery Road is set to open late in 2020. Who else can’t wait to fly in?
