New Food at Handmade
NEW FOOD AT HANDMADE
The Handmade DIRECTORY for the March market on 23 & 24 March is now live and packed with all of the talented designers and producers that will be coming to Canberra. Among the 270 stalls, we have around 40 new stall holders to present to you, all of whom can be found HERE. Several of these come under the categories of food, drinks and street food, so there’ll be some tempting new tastes around.

Altina Drinks is on a mission to shake up the Aussie drinking culture and is winning awards for its innovation. Altina has invented craft cocktails without the alcohol, retaining their punch and offering a delicious and refreshing alternative that’s also natural. And they’re effecting change, partnering with organisations working on alcohol harm to make a difference. We can’t wait to welcome them in March.
Locals, Bundt in the Oven, have taken the classic cake tin with a hole in the middle, filled it with rich pound cake style deliciousness and added a bit of magic on top. With quirky names such as Bean me up, Scotty! (coffee flavour), they’ll put smile on your face and fill the hole in your tummy.
Speaking of caffeine, while The Fix coffee van will still be serving their coffee magic in the gourmet food hall, we are welcoming a new expert to the Budawang Building. The Bearded Brewer hails from The NSW South Coast, and will be bringing hand roasted ethically sourced coffee and serving from a beautiful vintage caravan.
Who doesn’t love a beautifully iced cookie, especially as an Easter gift? Well, The Celebration Cookie Co use fresh local ingredients to craft pretty concoctions in their Melbourne kitchen, and will make to order as well.
Also satisfying the sweet tooth, Mallow & S’more will be offering handmade, small batch, gourmet marshmallows. Made in rural NSW, the flavours include not only seasonal fruits, rich chocolate, lemon meringue or liquorice allsorts, but also Champagne or beer and pretzels!
And if you’re craving something savoury, your mouth will be watering at the thought of arancini. That Arancini Guy has replicated his Nonna’s recipe to produce his traditional Italian dish consisting of small balls of rice stuffed with a savoury filling, coated in breadcrumbs and fried. Head to his street food stall at the market and try them, or indulge in some of the other Italian dishes he’ll be serving up.
Our gourmet food hall will be overflowing not only with these delicious first-timers, but also with established local, regional and Australian producers that we have all come to know and love. Head to the DIRECTORY to see them all. And we’ll see you at the Market on 23 & 24 March, 10am – 4pm, Exhibition park Canberra.
