  1. Lovely local olive oil from family business Milla’s Olive Oil is being used by MCEC’s From Farm To Fork in my hood. It tastes as great as it looks and their website has some very nice photos. I love supporting local small business and artisan producers as well as encouraging those in the hospitality industry to do it too.

  2. This magnificent 400g wild field mushroom was picked by Andrew Wood of Glenora, my revered fellow fungi fiend and Slow Food enthusiast. He also happens to be one of the accredited farmers I buy from at Melbourne Community Farmers Markets.

    At his suggestion, tonight I shall place slices of this marvel on a Taleggio and garden herb pizza. Can’t wait!

  3. Just cleaned up my hand me down electric Fowlers Vacola preserving unit. Hope it still works, it’s ancient! Unfortunately I’m missing the brass thermometer but hope I should be ok without it. Fingers crossed.

  4. Enormous heirloom golden beetroot from Gasworks Arts Farmers Market. Peeps were buying them for juicing. I’m thinking of using them in relish and having the leaves in salad. So beautiful!

  8. My neighbourhood is one of the oldest in city. Nearby is the pier where legions of European migrants disembarked to start their lives in a young, new country, full of potential.

    Many of those who came post WW2 from the Mediterranean never left the suburb, settling close by as though at a moment’s notice they might pack their bags and return to the motherland.

    Often without education and arriving with little money, the ‘New Australians’ eked out a living in local factories, on the wharves and heavy industry. The legacy of these settlers are local backyard market gardens brimming with fruit and vegetables, tended for years with love and tradition.

    I found these jerusalem artichokes in the local park and put them to good use. Thank you to whomever allowed us to share in them. I felt blessed.

  10. The new midlife crisis mobile LOL.

    This is the haul from a visit to The Gasworks Arts park Farmers Market. And no We don’t shop at Coles - not since Mr Sticki decided to boycott the duopoly of Coles, Woolworths and their associated businesses.

    You can read why we took this stance here. It was actually a very easy and comfortable change to our shopping habits, and has resulted in eating better, ethically, healthily and sustainably.

    We put our money straight into the hands of farmers and producers without the middle man. Or small independent stores. And it’s not just with food, but wine, beer, toiletries, detergent and paper goods too

  11. A typical farmers market haul like this will last us 3 weeks on top of what’s in the freezer/preserved.

  12. Beautiful small King Edward potatoes from Farmer Gordon Jones.

    I like to use King Edwards to thicken soup, but these blushing little beauties will be steamed.
