As if on cue, Mother Nature turned on a dazzling day of sunshine for shoppers at the Good Living Growers' Markets on Saturday. Despite the luxury of the weekly Farmers' Market at Eveleigh, Sydneysiders still flock to the markets at Pyrmont, held on the first Saturday of every month.
It's hard to believe it's been over six months since I last visited. Oh the lure of the Saturday morning sleep-in.
On a gorgeously sunny day though, it's hard not to smile at the stalls bearing the latest harvests of beetroot, the carefully stacked loaves of sourdough bread, the piquant smell of blue vein cheeses and the happy tumble of exotic mushrooms.
It may be an early start, but it's worth it.
