Coburg Farmers Market

Today I met up with Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe and her daughter at the Coburg Farmers Market. I haven’t been there before so Johanna kindly suggested we meet there. Melbourne has had some crazy windy weather this week but things were a bit calmer today:

I enjoyed looking at a range of vegetables, so many lovely colours. I thought about getting a spaghetti squash but might keep it for next time:

The carrots will be coming home with me on my next visit:

Colourful carrots

Hit that perfect beet boys!

Beautiful beets

There was a stall with really juicy delicious apples.  Nothing like the tasteless blobs I’ve bought from the supermarket recently:

The 5 & Dime bagel stall was a welcome sight.  Check out the deliciousness:

I came home with some golden beetroot and coriander:

And these blocks of chocolate from the Cocoa Rhapsody stall.  All of their dark chocolate range is vegan:

Now that I know the market is a stone’s throw away, I’ll make more of an effort to visit.  I’m looking forward to seeing more lovely veggies and cooking up something adventurous!

  1. So glad you loved the market – it is such a nice place to look at food and taste chocolate and enjoy some local ambiance. I am very sad that the apples are getting to the end of the season but it is nice how the food changes with the seasons here – I just need to work out what to do with my spaghetti squash now!
