orange grove growers market is pretty amazing. it has grown into one of sydney's finest. from baby lettuce and miniature herbs to sculptured mushrooms, hemp t-shirts, organic vegies, and a great array of meat and dairy products.
the focal point of the market has become, over the past eight years, the famous bacon and egg roll stall. it employs up to 7 people at a time in a relentless conveyor belt of sweet, paper thin bacon and perfectly cooked eggs on soft white rolls. mmm.
but, alas the misfortune of the food stall stationed beside the porcine behemouth!
and yes, it was our luck.
we didn't quite lose money, but it was a little disheartening. we'll persevere and have a trick or two up our sleeves.
sunday's market at addison road, on the other hand, was a great success. perfect autumn weather and the benefit of an extra hour's sleep brought hungry punters out in droves. we sold out by 1.30!
i ducked away early to attend my extended family's annual picnic in celebration of the life of my wonderful grandmother, edith, after whom my plum jam is named.
it was also my parent's golden wedding anniversary. we had an amazing croquembouche from le chocoreve in stanmore. it was a lovely day and i am blessed to have such wonderful relatives. not to mention my fine and loving parents.
and before the weekend got really busy, pete and i had a gig at chatswood, in the pedestrian mall melody market. it is always lovely there and we have such a great sound guy in david, who knows just how to do his job.
