Milly and Eugene features at The Grounds, Alexandria

Posted on September 04, 2013 by Hailey Mitchell

Milly and Eugene spent the weekend with The Grounds of Alexandria. The weather was lovely and there was a great buzz in the air.The Grounds is set in an industrial and heritage-listed warehouse in Sydney’s Alexandria. It is equipped with organic vegetable and herb gardens supplying the kitchen, a bakery, a café, a children’s play area, a takeaway space, chickens, and even a pig called Kevin Bacon.

We were invited to set up a stall and show off our vibrant wares at The Spring Markets. Under the pergola, surrounded by the lovely gardens, chilled tunes, and just a stones throw away from the takeaway coffee cart, life was good.

The sun was out and so were the crowds. At 8am there was a one hour wait for a breakfast table, not that it seemed to upset anyone. With so many things to see and do within the vicinity of the grounds everyone was happy and entertained.

It was a lovely chance for us to meet customers and get some great feedback. Everyone seemed to be impressed by our bright, eye catching stall. And for us, apart from our 5am wake up call, the weekend seemed a lot more like fun than hard work.
