Good Living Growers Markets

Danish pastries

It was grey and blustery skies this morning but we headed out to the Good Living Growers' Markets this morning regardless.

The fresh olives were very pretty, especially the ones that were starting to blush into a deep purple hue.

Breakfast for one person included a wagyu steak sandwich, which was apparently very tender and quite tasty!

    Hey Helen, I vetured out into the cold as well and made my way to markets. This time I had the courage to take some photos, and its funny to see yours because I had taken photos of the same things.
    I'll try not to post all the same ones!

    Hi jenjen - Excellent! And can't wait to see your photos. There's always something new to photograph which is great. And don't worry about posting the same ones either. Seeing the similarity in photos would be interesting in itself!

    Hi foodcrazee - Just a plane trip away. And ah, a small wad of spending money.

    Hi Papa Lazarou - Mission successful! I'm chuffed that I convinced you to brave the cold and even more pleased that it was worth the effort. Oink oink!

    You're a better woman than me! I took one look outside and burrowed into the doona. Shame on me :(

    Hi Reb - A woman who makes her own duck, cognac and pistachio sausages should feel no shame! No shame at all!

    Hi Catesa - I agree. It's so pretty isn't it?

    Great photos once again.

    Love the garlic plaits but if you had to use one, would the plait come apart?

    Hi Veruca - I suppose if you cut off bulbs as you went it wouldn't fray too much. The plaits are pretty, but the taste is meant to be even better!
