Hols@Home: City Farm Market

A sunny winter's day, the need of a pootle and a sudden hankering for kale with mushrooms (cooked with tamari, sesame oil, garlic and chilli) could only point to one thing. A trip to City Farm's Organic Market:










I couldn't resist wood-fired sourdough, beetroot and red cabbage as well. So, I also made a 'Purple Slaw' with dried cranberries and a coconut cream, honey and cider vinegar dressing. My brassica cravings sorted and a leisurely 27kms of fresh air, I was left feeling just a little righteous!

What lovely photos of food. My DH makes all our bread so I am really lucky. Wish we had winter weather s nice as yours. I'd be happy if the summer weather was as good!!!! This year has been particularly bad but hasn't stopped us getting out. I love cycling.

Brenda, every now and then I bake my own bread and I really enjoy it, but, I'm too lazy to do it regularly, sigh!

If it's any conciliation, I had to play 10 pin bowling for the first time in my life today (making up the numbers) and I arrived at the bowling alley absolutely drenched (and I had my waterproofs on)! There's nothing gentle about our rain when it does happen. I'm quite nostalgic for your spring showers.

I love a good market and this one looks like a grat one,better than ours even. You sound like you had a very virtuous day there BB.

It's quite small, but, has a pleasant atmosphere and City Farm has a really good permanent cafe as well (very often on the way to Perth, I'll duck off the bike path for a caffeine fix).

The UK weather has been so bad this year. We've never experienced such heavy rains - monsoon like. There has been a lot of flooding because a months rain fall in an hour and there is no where for it to go. No wet weather clothing copes with it, especially cycling uphill.
Hope you are enjoying the rest of your staycation.

Oh Dear, so much for 'spring showers'. We've had the driest July on record in WA (our winter). Bad for our perennial water shortages, but, great for cycling!

Typical that now I've left Perth, I keep finding Perth cycling blogs! Lovely to find another one.

You almost made me nostalgic by mentioning City Farm (How I miss Perth NOR bike along the train line infrastructure!) but then I read your post about water bills and remembered why I left. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to fill a bucket with sweet, sweet Tasmanian tap water and then throw it straight down a storm drain, just because ;)

Hee, hee :-) I would feel a little jealous if I didn't have family in Tassie who are frequently lamenting the cost of electricity when running the underfloor heating all Winter!!

Actually I'm STILL jealous. My bucket list includes hiking the Overland Track between Cradle Mountain and Lake St. Claire . . . sigh!
