Farmers Market

Angus and I went to the Farmers Market today. I love going every month when its on. You just never know what bargains they might have there.
The weather was absolutely perfect for an autumn day. The sun is shining and it was a lot warmer than it had been for a while. Although the weather is meant to change tomorrow. Back to cold & wet :(

This is one of my favourite stalls. Helen & her husband sell these amazing soaps. I always love checking out which soaps smell the nicest and buy them. It doesn't matter that I still have 5 or more cakes of soap in the bathroom cupboard I still get more. I can't help it. Who wouldn't like soaps that smell like frangipani, gardenias, chocolate, lemon scented tea tree, strawberries, pineapples, lemon, coconut or vanilla beans. Those were the ones I could remember there were so many more.

Angus was eyeing off the jackets in the back.

Some of our spoils.... yummy locally grown pink lady apples.

From Des's stall I bought some fresh green beans, brussel sprouts, sweetcorn and zucchinis. Des grows them all on her little farm.

I did the Mum thing too and bought the boys some more socks for school. Although I do wish that they would actually CLEAN their room. I know that they would be able to find ALL the socks and other items of clothing they say they can't find. I know its all in there. Its that silly 'floor-drobe' they insist on having! I will NOT go in there and clean it.

This stuff is from another favourite stall. I mentioned them last month. These guys sell all sorts of amazing foods such as lollies, curried sesame peanuts, fruit & nut mix, soy crisps, dried cranberries, cashews, almonds, dried pineapples, pumpkin seeds and a heap of other yummy goodies. I could honestly spend a lot of money there.

Yep, I just love going to the Farmers Market!

I can see why you like going there! There's nothing like fresh fruit and veggies! :-)

That is so true Poetess. Deliciously fresh, usually its organic and straight from the growers so its cheaper and often picked just a day or two before its sold :)

Okay, why don't they sell sweat pants at our farmer's market???!!

Jo-anne "Blossy" said...

Emily, they don't always have them at our market. Maybe 4-5 times a year. They do have good bargains though :)

Looks awesome. I keep meaning to go to our local farmer's market, but keep forgetting. It's only on certain days and I never remember.

Jennifer @ What Would Jen Do said...

I had to look up frangipani and then saw it's just a more fun word for plumeria.!

Jo-anne "Blossy" said...

Beverly, I know what you mean. It took me forever to remember when the market was on. Now I just have to remember that its the third Saturday each month :)

Jennifer, I had never heard of plumeria before. I guess we have both learnt something new :)
