We are lucky enough to have a fantastic farmers’ market right on our doorstep every fortnight. Today we took a wander into town to pick up some fresh from the farm veggies. Most of these were from our favourite veggie stall Secrett’s farm- purple and white sprouting broccoli, lettuce, cavalo nero, dill and a few stalks of rhubarb. We also picked up a gorgeous selection of Isle of Wight tomatoes. Can’t wait to get cooking, and looking forward to seeing what goodies are on offer in a fortnight’s time. Going to these markets regularly is a lovely way to buy local, in season produce and really encourages me to try new things. Never had cavolo nero before, but I will be checking out my Riverford Organics cookbook later on for some ideas.
The sun also obliged in peeking out from behind the clouds on our return home to give me a chance to photograph our veggies on the balcony. Its making me hungry just looking at them.
