    Published 22 March 2024
    Heading to the F1 Australian Grand Prix this weekend? Why not make a pit stop at the Market on the way to or from the track, refuel at one of our many restaurants and cafes, or grab something to go from one of our fantastic food and drink traders.

    If you are after an affordable way to feed your crew at the race, why not stop by one of the Market delis to throw together the ultimate picnic platter? No basket? No problem!  W.B. Smith and Co Kitchenware has a vast array of picnic hampers and rugs, while Faslini Leather Travel Goods have the quintessential cooler to keep your food and drink cold, as well as a selection of picnic rugs.

    Looking for a gift to take home to someone special? The Market has a vast range of gift options for him, her, the kids and even your four-legged friends who may have missed out on the track-side action. Stop by the Market to see what’s on offer.
