A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
Brave the cold and go to these farmers' markets
Winter has set in with a vengeance! The mornings are, to put it mildly, brisk in many areas and the winter jumpers, jackets, boots and more warm paraphernalia have been taken out of their moth balls and put to good use!
So, now it is time for markets! Don the warmest jackets you have and off you go - don't stay sitting home just because the weather is cold!
And to celebrate winter, why not stock up on your favourite winter produce which you can buy from a market?
At these markets, you will be able to buy steaming hot food in case you are still cold or if you just did not feel like making breakfast before you left home!
There will also be live music, good coffee which is always a must at markets, and of course, an array of the freshest winter produce available. This produce will range from lovely, crisp heads of broccoli and bright green kale to delicious new season apples and pears. There will also be cheese, bread, olives, pasta and much much more... including all of the award-winning Pfeiffer wines for tasting and sale.
This will all happen on Saturday 6th July 2019 from 9.00 am until 2.00 pm at Pfeiffer Wines, 167 Distillery Road, Wahgunyah.
There is no charge to go to this market and there will be music by Michael Brennan.
