The Gepps Cross Treasure Market runs every Sunday from 6.30am- 11.30am at the Gepps Cross Drive-In, Port Wakefield Road, Gepps Cross. Although getting up early on a Sunday morning to buy fruit and veg might not seem the most appealing way to recover from a late night, the sights, sounds and bargains more than make up for it. For students on a budget who don’t want to abandon healthy eating the market offers a veritable bounty of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, breads, dips, spices, eggs and nuts. As well as all the fresh delicious food, most of which is grown locally, there are fresh flowers, plants, and the most diverse range of trash and treasure imaginable. From clothes, shoes, toys and board games to vases, lawnmowers, furniture and odds and ends from the back of someone’s shed there is a wealth of useful or amusing things to be found. Prices are amazingly cheap and you could reasonably get all your produce for one person for a week and some fresh flowers for $25-$30. Both the sellers and buyers are a diverse multicultural mix making for great people watching. The multicultural mix is also evident in the range of foods that are available, things that you have never seen at the supermarket are in abundance and the stallholders are very happy to share cooking tips with you.
