Peanuts at the Rocks


Every weekend, a section of the main road in Sydney's famous suburb 'The Rocks' gets closed off to vehicles and little market stalls get set up. It's a fabulous location, right next to Circular Quay that houses two famous Sydney landmarks: the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. It's nice to have a stroll through the markets. They aren't very big, but there are a lot of different types of stalls, and even if you're not into buying souvenirs, very few can resist the smell of hot roasted caramelised peanuts (which is what they're cooking on the front plan of this photo). Mmmmm!

Hi Liz. I sure hope you get the opportunity to visit, you won't be disappointed. However, no raining donkeys here (that I've seen)! ;-)

vendors in nyc used to call them French Burnt peanuts, then they changed to French Roast Peanuts, Toffee-Peanuts etc... but today I'm sure they have another name--they are on street corners and you smell them before you see them!
