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:
Hit that perfect beet boys!
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:
Six bagels for $11:
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!
I love that you visited here with Johanna – what a great outing. I also love what you bought! It seems there is plenty to draw you back for a repeat visit too.
Yep it was pretty good and I’m looking forward to seeing what they have in the much warmer weather.
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!
I’m looking forward to things like strawberries 🙂
Looks fantastic – next time, I’ll be there! Is it a monthly market?
Hey, I forgot to say, I couldn’t make it to the market because I was busy tracking down antibiotics for my son. I sent my husband off to Preston Market instead…and he came back with a bag of the jam doughnuts! You’re right – they’re very good!
It’s on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. I’m excited to see what they do in the warmer months!
Oh those bagels!!!!! Great find I will have to pop down there some time soon. The flemington one is pretty good too!
I haven’t been to Flemington yet, I’ve been to those big huge craft markets that get held there. I used to get the Italian donuts but no idea if they’re vegan!
What gorgeous produce! And so nice to share it all with Johanna and Sylvia 🙂
Gorgeous fruits and veggies! And chocolate doesn’t hurt either! 🙂
heh so true!
