When you're in primary school the first day of the month usually means a pinch and a punch, but when you're a food lover, the first of the month ususally means that the Pyrmont Growers' Market is just around the corner. This was probably my tenth outing to these markets but my first one as a blogger so it was doubly exciting. Actually I went the month before, after deciding to start a blog although was too afraid to take photographs.
The markets happen on the first Saturday of every month, and this particular saturday the weather was cold and bleak. Although nothing stopped these Sydneysiders from sampling some of the finest produce the city had to offer. I arrived at the markets at around 8:30 and it was already bustling. Helen from Grab Your Fork, already posted a lot of beautful photos from the markets (which funnily enough we have shots of exactly the same things!) but here's a few more for your perusal:
Punnets of strawberries from Rowan Farm Berries
Stacks of organic sourdough breads from La Tartine.
Open faced tarts from the lovely ladies of Manna From Heaven. I went home with three of their Apple and Cinnamon Madeleines and I have to say I have yet to taste better. They were little morsels of heaven!
More cute cakes from Manna Fron Heaven, including their famous Lemon Polenta Cakes (behind)
Selection of teas from the Tea Shack
I also came home with a handful of these Macadamia Shortbread cookies from the Ginger Brownie stand. Funnily enough all the things I went home with were baked goods, go figure.
