The Malak Markets are a must-visit Darwin destination. They run from 4pm – 9pm every Saturday from the 29th of April until the 28th of October and host approximately 70 stallholders, ranging from those selling fruit and veg and meals and snacks, to African prints and hair care.
They have a BIG focus on the selling of organic produce where possible, as well the promotion of wholefoods (minimally processed).
I’d suggest perusing the whole market (or taking one of the guided market tours like we did) but, if you don’t have time for that, at the very least grab something to eat. The food is seriously good!
Here’s a taste of what we enjoyed (with snaps below):
Zucchini zoodles with creamy cashew Alfredo ‘cheeze’ sauce, sun-kissed tomato Napoli with locally grown basil and walnut pesto on top of fresh zucchini spiral mountain topped with a rawmesan pepita dusting
Ginger juice: fresh ginger, coconut water, rice malt syrup and all of the lemon
