Free gift for Grab Your Fork readers from Sweetness The Patisserie



It's the first Saturday of this month this weekend and you know what that means... the Good Living Growers Markets at Pyrmont.

To celebrate the first markets for spring, Sweetness the Patisserie will be offering a free gift with any purchase for shoppers who mention Grab Your Fork (yes, reading food blogs does have its rewards!). This gourmet treat will be in limited qualities only, so get there early to secure your free pressie! They will also be launching new flavours in their popular marshmallow range - extensive product testing has created new rosewater marshmallows and, tipped to be a crowd favourite, chocolate marshmallows too. Yum! Don't forget their tasty chai spice cakes, decadent almond nougatine and buttery English toffee either.

What else is happening food-wise? Mark these diary dates down and look forward to a weekend and more of utter deliciousness.

    Hi Kay - So many choices. I think I'll be heading to the Burwood Festival at this stage but not sure - such a big weekend of choices!

    Hi Anon - Thanks for the tip. I'll update the details shortly.

    Hi D - Excellent. I've just heard that the gifts have all been wrapped and are ready to go - they'll be new products so it's quite an exclusive!

    Hi Ffichiban - lol. Excellent. Hope you enjoy your tasty treat :) Not sure if I'll make it (attacked by the killer flu!) but I'm sure you'll pick up plenty of tasty goodies regardless.

    Just went to the Good Living Market and it was really heavy rain pourdown. Very few stalls were open and by the time I got there (~10am), most of the stalls were empty. I didn't get to see Sweetness The Patisserie. Wonder if there's an encore?

    Hi ~an* - There'll definitely be an encore. I'm just confirming with Sweetness but keep your eyes peeled on GYF for all the details!
