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.
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.
I loved the presentation; an individual box, with all the style of a French patisserie.
Don’t you just love figs? And chocolate?
Let’s not forget the fruit and veg.
I suspect someone from Leura or Katoomba crept up the hill and tampered with this sign!
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!
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.

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