If you’re an aspiring cook, every visit to The Northey Street Market will be a real treat. It’s truly one of the best food markets in Australia and the ultimate organic heaven where all stall holders need an organic certification to display their products. Aside from organic fruit and veggies, this weekly market also offers a chance to stock up on everything from organic bread to organic candles. Plus, it’s also a great place to pick up a fresh Kombucha tea or even get an invigorating massage!

TAKEAWAY: Kombucha tea is making serious waves in foodie circles, but how much do you really know about this concoction? Well, Kombucha tea is made from a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) aka ‘the mother or mushroom.’ Despite being called tea, it tastes nothing like tea at all! It’s quite sour and a bit stinky (an acquired taste for some) but full of good-for-you cultures. Most people also claim that it has an unusually addictive taste if you manage to take a second sip.

At Your Doorstep

Today, you don’t even need to get outside to get your healthy food fix when staying in Brisbane, especially if you’re looking for tasty snacks. Just order your organic food online and wait until your goodies arrive directly to your door. You can get everything from organic baked goods and oils to delicious snacks and beverages. The internet is truly a lifesaver for all of us busy bees who are not satisfied with simple pizza delivery!

Fundies

If stores are more your thing, make sure to head to Paddington and check out Fundies. It’s one of Brisbane’s most popular destinations for organic shoppers, and it’s filled top to bottom with certified produce. They also have super qualified staff to help you with your food choice which makes it a great place for all people who are just getting into organic food and clean eating. You can also rest between your shopping sessions in their café. The menu changes every day and their dishes run out pretty fast, so make sure to come in early. You won’t go wrong with any menu item, but their eggplant soups, lasagnas, and moussakas are finger-licking good.
