Welcome back! Welcome back!
The cheery yellow message on the Eumundi Smokehouse chalkboard seemed directed straight at me. It's been quite a while since I last made it to the Pyrmont Good Living Growers' Markets, but it was good to see all my favourite stalls still there, to recognise the stall owners, and to spend a lovely morning browsing, taste-testing and yes, of course, snapping plenty of delicious photos.
Shiso leaves from Darling Mills Farm
Italian woodfire breads
Preserves, relishes and chutneys from Lynwood
(I'm still reminiscing about their fabulous cafe)
Lynwood roasted red pepper relish
Marinated fetta from Binnorie Dairy
Blackberry lattice tart from Rowan Farm
Sourdough breads from La Tartine
Multigrain sourdough from La Tartine
Chicken and mango sausages on offer at the breakfast barbecue
Sheeps milk cheese from Formaggi Ocello
Saint Agur from Formaggi Ocello
Spiced pears, pickled garlic and golden verjus from Pariva Produce
Giant wheel of French brie from Simon Johnson
The heavens opened at about 10.00am, but even the light rain shower didn't stop the happy masses from buying out several stalls of their fresh produce.
Sold out of new season Galaxy apples from Mirrabooka Farms
Cultured butter from Gympie Farm
The bestest butter you could hope for - so good you could almost eat it with a spoon
Over The Moon A2 milk from Johnson's Farmgate
I was interested to try A2 milk, which is said to relieve various health conditions including type 1 diabetes, eczema, asthma and even autism. According to their website, Over The Moon milk has 15% more calcium and 17% more protein than most other milks.
Taste-wise, the milk did seem to have a stronger flavour, a decandent richness with a very faint hint of sourness. I do like the fact that the gold-tops are unhomogenised, meaning you get the stopper of thick cream at the top, just like in the old days of milk bottles and the delivering milkman.
