This method roasts beans evenly in a stream of hot air with no risk of scorching or tainting and produces cleaner, sweeter tasting coffee every time. There will be two Allpress coffee carts available over the weekend at the markets, catering for the market crowds!

Eat Art Truck
Our menu is best described as progressive street food influenced by American BBQ flavours, made for the people. Our chefs Stuart McGill and Alejandro Saravia draw upon their experiences from time spent in some of world’s (and Australia’s) best restaurants (including Tetsuyas, Sails on Lavender Bay, Fat Duck, Les Ambassadeurs, Salon Blanc) to deliver an eclectic menu that is ever changing utilising fresh and seasonal produce.
Stone & Wood
Stone & Wood Brewing Company was founded by three blokes who share a love of beer, taking a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer in Byron Bay, one the greatest places on earth. Our brewing philosophy is based on brewing beer that makes the most of the ingredients available today. Beer that simply lets the flavours and aromas of the ingredients shine through by keeping the processes to a minimum. Beer that is simply good to drink. Our beers are an expression of the Stone & Wood approach to life – trying to take things slow and keep it simple. There will be two Stone & Wood bars available at the markets, serving beer as well as other alcoholic refreshments during the event.
The Nighthawk Diner
The Nighthawk Diner was founded by a couple of young chefs with backgrounds in French fine dining. They have been borderline-obsessed with American culture since they were raised feeling as though Chevy Chase was the father every boy dreamed of, and Sesame Street was just a suburb over. You can expect handmade deliciousness that includes re-worked diner classics like the cheeseburger and milkshake. Non-bastardised, handmade simplicity – all ingredients including the bun, made from scratch.
Tsuru food truck
Tsuru is a custom food truck rolling out Asian street fares in the streets of Sydney. Tsuru’s signature dish the Pork Belly Bun has won the hearts of many with its tender melt-in-the-mouth braised pork belly sandwiched in a soft pillowy house-made bun. Also on the menu is are rice dishes including beef + kimchi & chilli tofu. An exciting news for the Finders Keepers crowd this year is that Tsuru’s Balinese lemongrass chicken roll which was awarded Australia’s Best Lunch Roll in 2012 is making a return at this year’s market!
Veggie Patch Van
The Veggie Patch Van will catch your eye with its farm barn looks but dig a little deeper and you will find high quality vegetarian food using seasonal produce sourced from local growers in NSW, a nod to the ‘paddock to plate’ movement aimed at reconnecting growers with diners. The environment also gets a look in with the van’s exterior made from re-used wood, solar power and all waste produce including packaging being compostable.
