Finders Keepers Market and lunch at Breakfast Thieves in Fitzroy

Melbourne’s Finders Keepers Market

There’s always something happening around Melbourne and it’s incredibly easy to keep in touch with all sorts of events that go on through social media, so we are very lucky! This past Friday evening marked the beginning of the Finders Keepers Market, which was held at the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton. With over 250 stalls, independent artists and creators from all over Melbourne displayed their works for us, with pieces ranging from stationary, clothing, body products, candles, homewares – the variety was endless.

It was a two dollar entry fee to the market, so people kept on coming! There was food and drink stalls available as well – it was fun to see that the most popular stalls at the time I was there, just after opening time of 10:00 am, the lines for coffee were the longest! That’s Melbourne for you 🙂

Despite the very large and spacious interior of the building, it was kept warm by many heaters set up throughout the venue, as the wind on this particular day was absolutely freezing! The Finders Keepers Market is one event in particular that’s held every year which I recommend is worth visiting, not only to see the many goods on sale, but the atmosphere of the building itself is very inviting and is a great opportunity to view the beautiful art on the walls and interior architecture.

Lunch at Breakfast Thieves, Fitzroy

As you can safely assume from our posts, cafes are never in short supply in Melbourne and it’s always fun to visit someplace new. Visiting Breakfast Thieves was one particular cafe I had on my “to-visit” list, so taking a tram 86 from outside the Exhibition Building was the quickest way to get us to Breakfast Thieves and to warm up with good food and coffee. After getting off the tram on Rose Street and turning into Gore Street is where Breakfast Thieves as buzzing.
I was lucky to be seated within under ten minutes after arrival, as you should always assume cafes will be busy on weekends. I was seated at a communal table and ordered a dish named The Goldilocks, which was a soy organic rolled oats and quinoa porridge, with banana, strawberries, flaked almond, seed mix, goji berries and a caramel pumpkin.

The inner-north suburbs of Melbourne, such as Fitzroy and Collingwood, have of recently been great a interest to Soichi and I, so visiting and discovering new places opens ours view of the city every time we visit and it gives us pleasure to share our experiences here! Thank you for reading and until our next post!
