Connoisseur Food and Design Weekend in Collingwood

Sat 19th November – Sun 20th November
35 Johnston Street, Collingwood
Melbourne designers and restaurants – plus an international ice-cream sensation – will converge in a rarely accessible Collingwood space.

Broadsheet is holding a one-off weekend food and design market this weekend in partnership with Connoisseur. It's behind the Spiegeltent on Johnston Street, Collingwood (near the Keith Haring mural). As we’re coming in to summer, we’re anchoring it with ice-cream.

New York ice-cream lords OddFellows – who have recently collaborated with Connoisseur – will be serving variations of their world-famous ice-cream sandwiches. The four new flavours of the Connoisseur Brooklyn range – which OddFellows designed – will be served between biscuits made by Tuck Shop Take Away.

Melbourne’s favourite Brooklyn-inspired restaurants will be setting up shop for the weekend to make our international guests feel at home, and to ensure the people of Melbourne have their bagel and Reuben sandwich fix.

Salmon ceviche with chilli, avocado, watermelon and coriander will feature on Nieuw Amsterdam’s menu, alongside fried pickles and a mac ‘n’ cheese waffle. 5 & Dime will be serving three types of bagels including one topped with bacon, maple and chipotle cream cheese.

Bowery to Williamsburg will do a roast turkey club on challah with maple bacon, lettuce, tomato and harissa mayo; beer-braised short ribs and its Reuben sandwich. Shawcross Pizza will serve three styles of pizza by the slice: Fat Tony, U.S.A. Today and the Notorious P.I.G.

Pick up homewares from Arro Home and Alchemy Produx. Indoor plants and seeds for the veggie garden will be available from Cool Cactus and Little Veggie Patch Co. Artist Minna Gilligan will be selling signed copies of her two books and a curated selection of her incredible wardrobe and accessories. Alison Turnbull will be selling her prints, cards and the like. Kitiya Palaskas, Kitsu and Emily Green have your jewellery needs covered. Beautiful leathergoods by Georgie Cummings will be up for grabs, and Nice Digs will have fashionable collars and leads for your dog.

The Royal Road Coffee cart will provide the coffee and there will be plenty of tables and chairs for you to enjoy an ice-cream sandwich in the sun.

If you bring kids along, you could plan your visit around the 3 Speed Crunch Box circus show at the Melba Spiegeltent taking place just in front of the market. There are two show times (10:30am and 12:30pm on Saturday).
