Good Living Growers' Markets, Pyrmont

Manna from Heaven cupcakes

Golden rays of early morning sunshine warmed our cheeks on Saturday as we browsed the monthly Good Living Growers' Markets. Is there much more to say after 19 posts on this outdoor celebration of tasty treats?

We sure do miss the butter lady though. I have a major craving for that hearty spoon-worthy slab of Gympie cultured butter. Is she nary to be seen?

Cakes from Manna from Heaven

Marshmallows from Sweetness the Patisserie

Our favourite stall is still Sweetness the Patisserie, of course. The plethora of samples has much to do with it.

And whilst the sun warmed our faces, the hot chilli wine sample warmed our bellies. At 12% proof and fermented purely from chillies, the grape-free wine from Disaster Bay Chillies did an temperature-raising salsa across our tongue.

It was the smoky chipotle sauce that made it into my shopping bag though. Made by wood-smoking their organically grown Jalapeno chillies, I've got a T-bone steak in the fridge just waiting to be annointed!

Cheeses from Simon Johnson

Golden beetroots

Shiitake mushrooms $5.50/100grams

    Ohhh I bought the cultured butter from the Gympie butter lady at the organic markets at Frenchs Forest - they are on every Sunday in the carpark of a pub there - I'm pretty sure she's there most weekends!

    Oh I hear you! I sorely miss the Gympie farm butter lady, I wonder what the reason is for her disappearance.
    Hope she comes back soon.

    Hi Chocolatesuze - Lucky you :) I've been having the chilli sauce all week with dinner!

    Hi Georgia - Ooh thanks for letting me know. So that's where she's disappeared to!

    Hi jenjen - We might need to make the trek to Frenchs Forest from the sounds of it! I needs me some butter!
