A perfect place to grab a bite is at the Mount Gravatt Marketta, happening every Saturday night at the Mount Gravatt Showgrounds from 4 to 10 PM.
The Mount Gravatt Marketta is a sister project to the Gold Coast’s Miami Marketta, which launched in 2011, according to creative director Emma Milikins.
“(Miami) started out as an arts precinct and the street food market started in 2011,” Milikins said.
She continues saying that opening a second marketta felt like “a natural progression” as they had already owned the Sunday Mount Gravatt Farmers Market.
“We have a really big focus on the food. We’re not trying to be a glitzy, bigger, better and bolder lights. It’s about being able to have a meeting place where you can share food with your friends.”
The marketta features 60 different food stalls and food trucks, accompanied by live music and a bar within a shipping container, all ready to satisfy every customer. This is a no-frills experience; there may not be any fancy lights and sounds, but everyone is committed to delivering quality food at reasonable prices, no matter the weather–rain or shine.
Some of the street food stalls joining the marketta are Malaysian St, French Made Crepes, Get Stuffed Spuds, Pacos Paella, Gold Wonton, Double T, Barbecue Mafia, Little Havana Food Truck, Mussel Brothers, and many more.
Entrance is $2 for customers over 16; anyone below 16 gets in free.
