Traditionally Turkish

Old Bus Depot Markets Stallholder - News from the markets – November 2014 Things are picking up pace as we enter the final months of the year. . We are super busy organising the upcoming Christmas Markets – twice the markets equal twice the work - but it’s worth it, and despite the rush we encourage you to make the most of what’s left of 2014. Don’t get too caught up in all the stress of the silly season. Remember to take a moment and appreciate life’s small pleasures. Simple things like admiring Bill Mahoney’s gorgeous glassworks from Desired Glass, or tasting one of Esra’s delicious zucchini balls from Traditionally Turkish. Ease yourself into the Christmas period by having a look at Jewel of Canberra on 9 November. Who knows, you might just pick up the perfect piece for that hard to buy for person (and get something for yourself while you’re at it!). See you on Sunday - Diane, Morna, Gayle, Sam and the OBDM Team. Jewel of Canberra set to shine On Sunday 9 November, the markets will transform into a veritable jewellery box, filled with all things sparkly, shiny, precious and treasured. Bringing together jewellery artist and designers, this is your chance to find something unique to be treasured. Read more about the Jewel of Canberra here.

Read more about Desired Glass. Traditionally TurkishDespite only being a stallholder for 10 months, Esra and her stall Traditionally Turkish have experienced incredible success.

Along with her mother and sister, Esra attends the market each week to sell her delicious traditional Turkish goodies. Esra’s falafels, chee koste (vegetarian kosta) and zucchini balls are authentically Turkish and provide a taste of Turkey for you to take home. The familiar taste of zucchini balls seems to appeal to the Old Bus Depot Market crowd, with the samples flying out the door.

These goodies are the product of over ten years of experience, and are sure to delight the tastebuds. Be sure to try Esra’s Traditionally Turkish delicacies on Sunday at the Old Bus Depot Markets!
