Sunday was a bright sun and blue sky winter day, perfect weather to head along to the very first 'Foragers Market' at Bulli Showground, which is what I (along with hundreds of other people) did, eager to check out this new farmers and artisan market. Clearly many locals, as well as not-so-locals, had marked the event on their calendar, as the showground and undercover market space were jam packed. I made the rookie error of taking the pram, making it difficult to cut through the crowd and get in close to the various produce stalls - will be sure to use the baby carrier next time!
I did manage to pick up a few bits and pieces, then headed into the sunshine to enjoy some of the spoils. There were some lovely spots to sit and take a break from the crowded stalls, as well as listen to some live music. We plonked ourselves under a tree and feasted on fresh raspberries.
We then made our way back out and to our car a few blocks away, picking up a small posy of flowers on our way out. Then back home to deliver my other half his hot empanada and the few raspberries that were left.
At home, I roasted my beautiful bunch of baby beets and made a warm salad with roast potato, rocket, walnuts and tahini dressing.
The salad would have been great with some goats cheese or ricotta, but I couldn't get close enough to the cheese stall to acquire any! Oh well, there's always next Sunday.
