    Thanks for letting us know about these events. I'm hopeless at keeping up with these things-I think I keep my head buried in the ground!

    Thanks Helen for the list of Festivals. I knew of Ferragasto and planning to go so think we shall visit Live green also. I have now written the dates in my diary and can plan ahead for the others. I often read of them in Good Living with a full weekend already planned!!

    Cheers....Noodlehead

    Hi Lorraine E - No problem. I have to write things down otherwise I forget. I won't be able to make some of these events, so I'm hoping that others will (and blog about them! hint hint!).

    Hi chocolatesuze - Why hellooooo.... I thought I'd read something about that, so thanks for confirming/reminding. I was sad that the markets got cancelled during last year's GFM. The City definitely needs weekday farmers markets!

    Hi Noodlehead - Unfortunately I've got plans this Sunday so I won't be able to go to either Ferragosto or Live Green. Let me know how they went :) and yep, a food-filled weekend is my favourite kind!

    Hi Chocolatesuze - lol, not creepy; I read it as a lady-like trill :) And yes, I am planning on checking out the markets, esp now that you'll be there! All dependent on work commitments though :( Will try my best!

    thank you thank you thank you :)

    I have been trying to put together my list of events / things to visit - but it just kept being put to the bottom of the pile. Now you've made it easier for me.

    Thanks so much for the list. I'm forever reading about these things *afterwards*, slapping my forehead and groaning "doh". I've put all these in my diary and hope to make Ferragosto today and blog about it in my very, very, very new and unformed food blog.

    Very nice list here Helen!

    We went to Ferrogasto on Sunday it was fantastic, will do a write up soon.

    Theres the Dank Street Festival in October, might be a little earlier to let people know but I'll give a heads up anyway!

    Hi Bec - Yep, nothing like a list to get you organised. Hope you make it to a couple of events :)

    Hi Steven - Hope you made it along to Ferragosto, and happy foodblogging!

    Hi Howard - Glad you enjoyed Ferragosto, and yes, thanks for the reminder about Danks Street.

    Hi Tracey - I always think of you when I hear about the Gluten Free Expo :) Happy shopping!
