Farmers Markets

Saturday is market day. I always look forward to our  trip to buy the weeks vegs, knowing they are locally grown and so fresh, they definately taste better then supermarket produce. The whole mornings experience is laid back and stress free.The atmosphere is enhanced by  acoustic music played by a local group, sometimes a solo artist, sometimes 2 or 3 musicians. and next to their marquee is the organic coffee bar. As the sign proclaims “grown,picked, ground and brewed with love by us”.

It is the highlight of the morning, delicious long black coffee and a home baked slice of yummy carrott cake bought from another stall holder, and at $5 for two large slices it is better value than a coffee shop.Sitting in the sun, listening to the music and watching the people stroll by with their green organic shopping bags, or little trolleys, filled with fresh fruit and vegs, relaxed and smiling in our glorious Queensland spring weather.

Farmers markets are a growing trend and I will be watching for them as we travel the roads and byways of this huge country.

    • Ah that was back then, all good fun, but now I play a very low key, when I am home I like to spend time with friends and family and of course in the garden.


      • yes – our roles sure do evolve – and I am having fun skimming the older posts – I will be back later this week to look at a few more – from the next month…
