I read somewhere that in Europe when the locals are shopping for fruit and veg they dislike buying prepackaged goods, preferring to pick and chose their produce carefully.. so do I and thousands of other Perthites and Subiaco residents alike. I think from the way the gentleman above is weighing up his avocados he is definitely European :) Subiaco, sister city to Subiaco in Italy and home to many European settlers in the 1880's is set to change and not in a good way, beginning with the old Subiaco Pavilion Markets below at the end of Rokeby Rd. being developed into this hideous monstrosity, which will be more out of place in Subi than an igloo on the Nullarbor Plain.. if you could see the tree lined old buildings along Rokeby Rd. you would know exactly what I mean.
Across the road, unless as in the1990's when the markets were first under threat from developers and thousands of customers and locals signed petitions and lobbied local gov. officials successfully saving the Subiaco Station St. Markets by Christmas it could be all over and the markets replaced by, wait for it.. Coles and Target, seriously! They've got to be kidding right! You tell me where you'd rather spend time on the weekend weighing up your avocados :) The redhead and I had a brilliant time picking and choosing.. culminating in, I can honestly say one of the best almond croissants I've ever tasted.. I'm not finding that in Coles or Target! Bon weekend, take care..
