As if on cue, the first day of spring on Monday was full of warmth, sunshine and nary a cloud. The first Good Living Growers' Markets for spring was completely the opposite. Oh Mother Nature, why do you mock us so!!!
The determind trudge over the Pyrmont Bridge involved a battle with an umbrella determined to elope with the wind. I put my head down and battled on, the pursuit of good food driving me forth...
Broken heart sank down to soggy shoes as it became apparent that all stalls, bar one, had long since been abandoned. Darling Mills were the only stallholders determinedly holding fort. Oh gutwrenching misery!
Solace was sought back in the City in the merry cave of Victoria's Basement - oh happy shelves and aisles aclutter with baking trays and crockery and all kinds of lustworthy kitchenware. The world was good again.
And for those who missed out on the free gift giveaway from Sweetness the Patisserie, Gena assures me she will honour the offer at a future market - details to be confirmed.
Good Living Growers' Market
7.00am - 11.00am on the first Saturday of every month
