Pink Lady apples
First Saturday of the month = Pyrmont Growers Market.
The combination of Good Food Month endorsement, as well as the start of a sun-kissed long weekend, saw unprecedented crowds flock to the Markets this month. I've never seen it so busy before!
Joanna Savill was on stage chatting to various vendors but we headed straight for the stalls instead.
Had to stock up on my monthly allotment of fruit sourdough from La Tartine (two please) and I couldn't resist a smile when I spotted these mini bread rolls labelled as "One of those little ones".
Whilst I hacked off a slice or two of fruitbread for a makeshift breakfast (so soft, fluffy and packed with figs), Saffron was more interested in a fry-up breakfast of the bacon variety.
Both munching on our breakfast of choice we mingled amidst the crowds, the dogs (there's always an extreme of giant dogs and tiny pooches to point at) and the wicker baskets filled with bunches of rhubarb and trays of organic free-range eggs.

After a lap or two of goats cheese samples, rosy red orange segments and spoonfuls of heat from the Chilli Factory, we had a spell watching Joanna still interviewing stallholders.
After scoring a sample of macadamia nuts (heh! are you spotting a theme here?) we did another half-lap, particularly as Saffron was trying to work out where exactly those plates of pancakes were coming from (we found them at the organic coffee stall which sells the luscious-looking banana bread).
I added a whole smoked trout ($8.00) to the shopping bag and we noticed many of the stalls were completely sold out by 10.00am. Thank goodness we got there early.
