Flour Market is a super popular pop up market that showcases Melbourne’s small, artisan and emerging bakers. Since its inception in 2013 it’s been the launching pad for new businesses such as Waffles Jolie and Agathe Patisserie.
Despite numerous attempts I’ve never managed to make it to Flour Market. Even though it’s generally held early on a Saturday or Sunday morning the lines have always been immense, even as the venues have become bigger and bigger.
On the Level 2 connecting bridge Flour Market are setting up a rotating calendar of Flour Market’s favourite stallholders every Thursday 3-7pm. There’s no queues, no elbowing and a varied selection of baked goods (mostly sweet) from doughnuts to cake to pastries to bread.
It was so hard to choose but on my visit I bought sweet treats from Luxbite and Shortstop Donuts – the first because I can never resist their sweets, the second because I’ve never made it into their CBD store and only ever drooled over their Instagram feed.
The light-filled corridor also has a few bench seats where you can enjoy your treats on the spot, as well as panoramic views of Melbourne’s CBD streets and alleys.
You can keep an eye out for the list of stallholders every week on the Melbourne Central website or Facebook page – tomorrow you can expect treats from Agathe Patisserie, Citizen Cacao, Cobb Lane, Moonbeam Kitchen, LuxBite, The Honey Thief, Vickiee Yo x Ray Ray and gelato from Billy Van Creamy. Every Thursday morning 9-1pm they also have a $50 Flour Market giveaway on Instagram.
Every Thursday 2 Jun – Thu 30 Jun 3-7pm
