The Farmers Market

Today we visited the Bendigo Community Farmers Market for the first time. It was a nice, happy event with lots of friendly people and lovely produce. We came home loaded up with fresh fruit and vegetables, free range eggs, homemade fig and ginger jam, local honey, some yummy sourdough, a couple of seedlings for our garden and more silverbeet than we know what to do with!

Tomorrow we plan to get some serious gardening, crafting and coffee drinking done. Yes, gardening, crafting and coffee drinking are serious buisness around these parts.

What are you up to this weekend? Wishing you all a spiffy time, no matter what you’re doing!

    I adore farmers markets – looks amazing. The chard are great bundled up, I grow it on my allotment and the stems are super bright. This weekend it is rain, rain, rain here in the NW of England – oh joy! I have been decorating the house for Halloween since it is one of my favourite festivities. Have a great weekend.

      Yes we bought home a lovely big bundle of that rainbow chard – it’s so pretty. It’s rainy here today too, but that’s ok. It’s the perfect weather for snuggling up at home!

    What a wonderful part of the world you live in. I love the ‘big hairy dog greets little hairy dog’ photo : )

    I can’t wait to move back to our market town so I can get back on this market malarky! It’s really hard to inspire Him Indoors to get out of bed to make it to car boots and what not, I have to bribe him with outdoor food!

    That bread looks incredible!

    I’m making some freezer meals today…my little boy will be born at some point in the next couple weeks and I want to make sure I have some mac and cheese ready to be slid into the oven at a moment’s notice. =)

    You market trip looks like super fun! Busy Sunday here… have finished knitting one sock, made some Japanese dumplings and laid out sugar cane mulch on soon-to-be veggie garden beds.

    Lovely! Would like to try that jam:)
    Headed to the beach today. Worked in my garden yesterday, replanting and harvesting. Good luck with yours:)

    I love Farmer’s Markets! We go to the Central Market in Adelaide every week to get all of our fresh produce. It’s so nice!

    This weekend I’m thinking of visiting another market in the Adelaide Hills if the weather is nice! Otherwise I will just be relaxing at home 🙂
