Queen Victoria Market

On Saturday morning, we biked downtown to the Queen Victoria Market.  To start the day right, you have to have some yummy jam-filled doughnuts from this cart.  So good!  I'm not sure why it's called "American" though.
This famous market is busiest on Saturdays, but it's open several other days of the week as well.  There are aisles of fresh fruits and vegetables, areas with meat, fish, cheese, breads, clothing, and more.  It's one giant flea market-type atmosphere with crowds, sellers yelling their prices, etc.  And the prices are pretty good-I'm never buying produce at the grocery store again!

You can even buy your own ducks and chickens.  Peking Duck anyone?!  We didn't buy a lot this time around, but we'll be back for sure.  It was a nice way to spend a Saturday morning.
