I do love venturing to local markets. There you get a true sense of the locals. Unless of course they are ‘tourist’ markets, where you face with a plethora of overpriced trinkets.
Ever since I first dreamed of visiting Darwin and the Northern Territory, and that is quite a long time, I have wanted to visit the Mindil markets. Guess what? I didn’t do my research very well, which meant our visit was two weeks shy of the markets opening for the season. The gorgeous beach night markets open on the last Thursday in April and run through until the last Thursday in October.
The hunt was on for some other markets to visit while we holidayed in the top end. It was through reading about Yusuke Fukuda and his Darwin famous ramen, that we visited Parap Village Markets.
