Unfortunately not all the usual stalls were here, but there was still plenty of fresh produce, breads, organic meats and eggs and various craft and jewellery stores.
Breads from Formaggi Ocello...
Pumpkin and macadamia nut boule $6.00
I grabbed this loaf which actually contained pumpkin and macadamia nuts. The bread was gorgeous--heavy, nourishing and interspersed with plenty of macadamia chunks.
Ripieni osso buco; ripieni spinach and ricottta; and cannelloni osso buco from Glori ai Golosi
Shadow of Blue from Tarrago, Gippsland
Vine-ripened juicy tasty truss tomatoes
Ethiopian fare including lentils and ingera, a pancake-style flat bread.
Our noses were more interested in the smells emanating from the Mojo Picon stall where chorizo sausages sizzled enticingly...
Chorizo roll with plenty of Mojo Picon sauce (orange ) and Mojo Verde (green) $5.50
Apparently the picon is a traditional Canary Island sauce with cumin, paprika and garlic. The verde is more Spanish with flavours of coriander, parsley and garlic.
The mojo picon was so tasty, I ended up buying a jar ($5.00 for 190ml with chorizo purchase).
The chorizo was also very good. Unusually meaty and not too oily.
Rocky Road Museli by Whisk and Pin $9.00 for 500g
What's in it?...
How could I resist...
I plan to have it sprinkled on ice cream... mmm...
Baskets of peaches
We had a picnic at Centennial Park next door and devoured most of our goodies.
