Orange Grove School, Organic Food and Farmers Market

Today I went to the Organic Food and Farmers Market, located at Orange Grove school, Sydney. The market is about a fiften minutes walk from where I am currently staying and it was the second time I have visited since I arrived.

Although called an Organic Food Market, it is a lot more diverse than that. There are an assortment of fruit and vegtable, meat and specialist producer stalls that wouldn't look out of place at Borough Market, albeit on a smaller scale. The food stalls that aren't certified organic carry prominent and helpful signs informing everyone.

As well as food sellers there are book, plant and a couple of clothing stalls. On the school field there was a car boot sale with its jumble of goods.

As you would expect a number of the food stalls were cooking up their wares to tempt the crowds. Last time we went I had a bacon and egg sandwich (see above). A bit more gourmet than those knocked up at Truck Fest.

*Hat Tip to Clint who I stole the photo from and who has written about the market here.

  2. I gave you a hat tip, what are you complaining about? You need to get your water mark sorted out....

    I won't disagree, it was lovely, but I'm not sure about "the best" call.
