Supper Market
The Supper Market at the Abbotsford Convent and it’s only 4km from the city. There is a range of food on the food hawker stalls, and shoppers have numbers of products on offer, while people looking for entertainment will find circus performers roaming the grounds, music lovers will enjoy acoustic music played by local musicians. White Hat suggests that those who want to be outdoors on a summery Friday night should consider the Supper Market. Bring your picnic rug and enjoy sitting on the garden lawns while eating fresh food served from the hawker food stalls.
