Phenomenal Footy Snacks At The Market

Friday 21st September 2018

We’re all about footy-snacks at the moment because that one day in September is fast approaching! We took a stroll around the Market to grab some inspiration for you and help you ‘up’ your footy-snacks game. Read on friends.

To Cook

Make a bee-line for Bracher Arcade where you’ll find all of our meat, poultry and seafood. J&L Quality Meats has some mighty looking beef shasliks at the moment – these are going to be popular. Paul, Charlie and the team put them together in-house using beautiful grass fed, hormone free and free range beef and a special marinade, all ready for you to grill-up and go.

Don’t go past the range of chicken drummettes at D&J Poultry – made from free-range chicken, you have the choice of Honey Soy or Peri-Peri marinade.  Aside from being tasty they also are quick and easy to prepare – just grill or oven bake.

For something in the seafood department, why not try the salmon fish cakes made by Ting and the team at Periwinkles, we can see these with a nice salad, or pick yourself up some of the light and fluffy multi-coloured brioche buns from Noisette, add a little mayo, some tomato and a little lettuce for crunch. Lovely!  And who needs fries when you can grab yourself some oysters on the side.

Or Not To Cook

If half-time cooking seems a bit of a chore why not try some of these ready-to-go goodies. (Tip: order ahead if you are looking for certain numbers).

Don’t go past the oh-so-moreish cheesy croquettes at Cleos Deli – made in-house and they are just brilliant heated in the oven as a finger food dipped in relish or sauce.

Sweet Greek have their super tasty house-made, bite-sized Tyropita and Spanakopita in all their feta-and-filo-y deliciousness and you can grab delicious ready-made salads here too, all made from produce from Prahran Market.

Continuing on the pie theme, what about a selection of pastries from Barossa Fine Foods? We’re talking pie-heaven here people, from quiche to sausage rolls and pies, chunky delicious fillings from vegetarian to meat, all made in Victoria using quality ingredients. Nobody would blame you for grabbing a quick Kransky on the side either.

Then, of course, there are all the dips and deli meats, olives and cheese you can think of in our Deli Arcade.  Lots of good deals on dip multi-packs at the moment, so you can grab a few tubs for the table.  Make sure you check out Chasos Gourmet Deli for the most delicious mountains of goodness for a charcuterie board, from dolmades to stuffed olives and cabbage rolls. Actually, we can’t take our eyes off the mountain of white anchovies (if you haven’t tried them, get on those, stat).

Finally, don’t overlook Fougasse from Q le Baker either for your market stroll or for game day. These are all sorts of good, twisted and baked like a big oversized pretzel, filled with green and kalamata olives and sprinkled with Emmental cheese. Just yes.  Or grab a few of their house-made pies (pictured above), with delicious fillings made using the produce of other Market traders (braised beef cheek and mushroom anyone?).

We hope this list makes your footy-snacks shoppng a little easier. If you’re quick, you might also be able to pick yourself up one of the fantastic footy and other caricature artworks in Mama Marijas Cafe – there was a great one of Dustin Martin last time we looked.

To make things super easy, we are open on Grand Final Eve Friday 28 September with normal trading hours.  You’re welcome!
