BLACKHEATH GROWERS’ MARKET

 

 


Blackheath Farmers' Market

 

What a joy the busy  Blackheath Growers’ Market is. Mind you, I’m glad I can walk up there. These days  people have to park their cars  almost down to my own house near the duck pond.

 

Arrive early!

It’s held on the second Sunday of the month at the Community Hall in Gardiner Crescent. With additional  stalls in the park behind around 60 growers and producers are represented.

There are always lots of people sitting in the  sunshine with a coffee listening to  live music. Yes, we do have sunshine in dear old ‘Bleakheath’.

Must confess  I am usually too busy buying goodies to sit down for long.

Fresh berry muffins.

I loved the presentation; an individual box, with all the style of a French patisserie.

Don’t you just love figs? And chocolate?

Lovely on icecream.

Let’s not forget the fruit and veg.

Fresh produce from Orange.

I suspect someone from Leura or Katoomba  crept up the hill and tampered with this sign!

 

WINTER CHILL

The Farmer’s market is as popular in June as it is in January. Mind you, everyone is a lot more bundled up, even the singer!

Warm, but very smart!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The queues for coffee and  comfort food are pretty long.

Pop around the corner and there’s  a craft market  in the old Presbyterian Church Hall in Wentworth Street. On other Sundays the stallholders are across the railway line at the RSL Club.

Lots of homemade craft goods  here and, oh my word, the most heavenly fudge. I bought mango/coconut and  coffee/chocolate.

To die for!

I’m not sure how one goes about having a stall at the Growers’ Market, but my  young associate Editor Des wants one, to sell his kitchen garden produce.

Ready for the Blackheath village market.

Just quietly, I think Editor Des’s  prices might need a bit of adjustment.

  1. What a vibrant area you live in!
    And yes, I think Des’s prices are a little over the top!

      Well, he said it’s because they are organically grown.
