Lucky for us , it was at John and Peters Canteen , at Everleigh Carrigeworks in Redfern Sydney, one of the new breed of restaurant/ function centre, serious food cafe, that has a good amount of street cred being partially attached to the Eveleigh Farmers Markets. We had a fantastic dinner and danced for a few hours into the night………..
Eveleigh is reclaimed railway space … ‘carrigeworks’. It now houses this Canteen and an enormous space where art and fashion shows and even theatre are now staged. This has not always been the best area, Redfern is undergoing a resurgence as a residential and artistic zone. The Eveleigh Farmers Markets are a must for any cook or food obsessed blogger www.eveleighmarket.com.au
