Having tried to drive near the Queen Victoria Market just before lunch time this morning and failing miserably due to people from the suburbs, the pre christmas shop this afternoon turned out to be the complete opposite.
My hot inner city grocery shopping tips for your pre-christmas needs:
- Safeway at Docklands, just off Bourke street.
- Coles in Fitzroy on Johnston street, just near Brunswick street.
Both were close to deserted, probably because not many people know they exist. You get 2 hours free parking at the Docklands Safeway - and there is a huge car park. Parking at the Fitzroy Coles is not free, but there is a car park around the back of the building.
Results sofar: excellent home made dukkah. Up next: hommus.
