I really enjoy going to the Grower's market, but recently all my Saturdays have been dictated by meetings with real estate agents, furniture shopping, weddings and running around getting things done. It was really nice just to take a step back to meet up with ex-work colleagues and spend some time outdoors.
I'm a creature of habit, so as usual I raced off to my Apple man to grab 3 bottles of his super sweet tasting apple juice ($5 for 2 litres and tastes very different to your supermarket variety!). I also managed to grab one of his large home made apple pies $15 (he only makes these in winter) and I will let you know of my verdict after I get a chance to try a slice.
Next stop the bread man, I always spend ages here trying to decide what bread to take home. Sophia and Jacky each had a pie from here and I bought a loaf of pumpkin bread and a loaf of their gluten free soy and linseed at $5.50 a loaf.
Once this was done we got to walk around to look at the usual stalls and explore what's new.
I've yet to work out how to use chutney (besides putting it on a biscuit). I did admired the 'ready to eat' colourful flat mozzarella rolls...very interesting.
I've never noticed this portable washing basin before
Below: Wagyu beef
They were cooking these wagyu beef steaks....the aroma was mouth watering and when they gave me a piece of steak to sample, I couldn't resist a steak sandwich. I was a little disappointed though, when I finally got my sandiwch my steak was very over cooked and cold...not something that I'll get again next time.
