Last Saturday I went to the Orange Grove farmers market, as you well know, I am a devotee of the Carriageworks market. A friend had mentioned that Orange Grove was worth the visit. Another reason was that my knives needed a sharpen and Carriageworks had made the Knifesharpener unwelcome and he relocated.
This is what I found. A lot more fruit and Veg stalls and I would say very much cheaper. Line Caught fish. You can buy Limoncello. The Home Linen Ladies sell very good quality linen sheets and fabulous linen water. There are vintage stalls and a lot of plant stalls. The flowers I found disappointing and are cash only.
The parking here will drive you a little mad, but it does at Carriageworks as well if you leave it too late. Bread is definitely better at Carriageworks A places to sit and eat your breakfast and gasbag...one of my joys of my market day at Carriageworks is very limited at Orange Grove.
Overall I would say have a look, but go early and take cash for your flowers
