The first Saturday of the month means the organic market in a local park and this felt like a perfect place for my 5 in 5 joining Sandie in her suggestion to spend 5 minutes taking photos and them to choose 5 to share.
Turning in through the gate we can see that there are a good number of stalls set up
the lovely anticipation of seeing familiar regulars and the hope of something new and exciting too
I always buy cake form the lovely German ladies – often ‘beesting’ or pear Danish pastries but this month I went for a marzipan cake ( at the back with raspberries on top) and a raspberry torte. I always take along a plastic box to protect the goodies in my bag
Next door to them is the organic vegetable man – I visited his massive walled garden with my Dad’s gardening group last year so always have a chat as well as buying some produce – kale and fennel this time. I’m not sure if he thinks it is an advantage having the stall next to the music group – sometimes they are very loud
Another new regular stop for me is a stall selling African and Carribean food – this month her husband and son were doign teh selling – not as chatty as the lady who makes the food and is often there. I got a pork gumbo patty a piece of cornbread and some ‘kenyan doughnuts flavoured with cardamom.
Nothing new and enticing this month but pleased to see these 3 regulars were there.
