Amazing weather this time of year. I know it will probably get cold again but it feels like summer already. Perhaps I've just forgotten how hot is gets. There's no better place to feel the abundance of spring than at farmers' markets. We are lucky to live very close to the Orange Grove Markets held each Saturday morning.
The fresh produce is amazing.
I just wanted to share these iPhone snaps with you. If you are still buying your fruit and veggies at supermarkets, why not try getting to a local farmers' market next time. You will be surprised at the variety and quality - and prices.
Each week we buy our weekly fruit and vegetables, some heritage chicken eggs to supplement our own chickens produce, sourdough bread, goats curd, a bunch of flowers and herbs. We also often buy really good quality meat. And usually a Turkish gozleme but we've wined and dined so much this week that we didn't buy it this morning! We had some wonderful friends stay as they waited for their car to be imported. They have set off on a year long adventure driving from Sydney overland (and a few boats) across Asia, Russia and Europe. This is our same friend who climbed Mount Everest and the other of the 7 Peaks (the highest mountains of each continent). They are also travelling to the seven lows. They'll go to Lake Eyre while here in Australia. Talk about interesting people. We've had a blast of a week but I'm totally trashed now!
The flowers look beautiful on my sideboard.
Just a whisper of pink.
Been to any good markets today?
What did you buy?
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
