PORTUGAL COMES TO PETERSHAM – Festival in Photos

It’s on again, the annual Biarro Portugues – the Petersham Food and Wine Fair.

I was there with the requisites – a camera and an empty stomach.

Our Sydney suburb Petersham is the heart of the expat Portuguese community. It’s not a big area, and not a big community, but they all turn out on a Sunday for the food, the music and a good time.

It's all go in Audley St.

Sangria...

...and sardinas.

…and sardinas…

And a quiet coffee at Sweet Belem at the end of the day.
