Hardware societe

Out of all the cafes and alley ways in Melbourne, my work friends somehow find their way to the only place I wanted to brunch in the CBD – Hardware Societe. It didn’t appear to be a problem for them to brunch on Friday but apparently Saturday was a whole new ball game.

As we approached the cafe we could see the hoards of people waiting in line to grab a table at what appeared to be the only place that mattered in Melbourne that morning. Being discouraged by the line, Tim and I just ordered drinks to go and headed to the next location on our schedule.

It looked uber cute though! I will have to come back (probably during the week) and see what the wait and fuss is all about.

New Permanent Opening Hours

Following a trial and review of revised Market opening hours, it has been decided that the new and permanent opening hours now in effect at the Capital Region Farmers Market are 7:30am -11:30am every Saturday*.

*Some exceptions do occur.

Reminder: Easter Closures

Easter in the Nation’s Capital means it’s theNational Folk Festival time. It’s an iconic Canberra event, bringing with it song, dance, performers and art. And it’s all happening atExhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) from 28 March to 1 April 2013.

Consequently, there will be NO Capital Region Farmers Market on that weekend. However, the Market will continue as usual the following weekend (Saturday 6 April 2013), so make sure you stock up on your fresh Farmers Market produce!
