What a beautiful day to go to the Farm Gate Market, we were on a mission to collect some quality ingredients for our upcoming cooking demo at the Koonya Garlic Festival. Of course all major food adventures must begin with coffee, so we ordered one from Rasberry fool.
We started with a chat while watching people coming & going with their bags of fresh market goodies. I was keen to practice my new photography skills with my new lens & I fit right in as there were lots of tourists with their DSLR cameras at the market today. A few people asked where I was from, um Hobart 🙂
Oh yum fresh basil, growing in a pot yes please!!
This is taking fresh to the next level! The nashi’s are delcicious!!
These Raspberries went 1 better they were picked this morning before the market! Fresh as!
We signed the petition so we can get our delicious organic dairy produce from Elgaar back into production!
One of my favourite ingredients, I don’t need to buy because it’s growing in my garden in huge quantities.
We collected some goats cheese & taste tested the yummy smoked haloumi from Southern Sky Gourmet Cheeses.
We tried the dukkah had a good chat with Geoff from DR Garlic & ordered our black garlic for the garlic festival. He is presenting a talk about black garlic & black holes at the festival & maybe will share his secret recipe for black garlic vodka!
More chats to garlic enthusiast Matt from Van Diemen Garlic he is the one who makes the garlic braids too!
You can’t go to the market & miss out on the best sushi ever! You do have to line up for a while to get your made to order Masaaki Sushi, but it is well worth the wait & we even made some new instagram friends while in line 🙂
