Catching the train to Prahran Markets


By Jennifer Lumsden, January 31 2019

Travelling independently to Prahran

On Tuesday, we went to the Prahran Market. We walked from Marriott, Roads to Independence to Moorabbin station; we caught a train to South Yarra then changed to the Sandringham line to get to Prahran station. We decided to have morning tea at the park; we stopped and took a picture at Allison’s Bakery, it was especially cool because Allison was with us.

We walked to Prahran Market and looked at all different stalls; there was a butcher’s, a cheese stall, a cake stall and even a Turkish delight stall and many fresh flowers. We looked at all different the fruit and veg from around the world.

We went for a walk to Chapel Street before lunch; we went into different shops before returning to the market for lunch. We all tried different foods for lunch, Ebony had Mac ‘n’ cheese from the cheese stall, Anthony had a sandwich, Jessica got a Greek salad with lamb and chicken, Mark chose a croissant and fresh juice, and Isabelle had Caesar salad. Lunch was delicious.

After lunch, we made our way back to Prahran station, stopping to sit at the park and looking at a jewellery shop with Helen our Volunteer. We had so much fun at our outing.

We travel a lot on the trains and really enjoy it.
