This Saturday saw the Eveleigh Farmers’ Market start trading for the new year.  Joh and I rose early and rode our bicycles to Redfern. We arrived around 8.15 and were pleased to see that there was a bike stand right outside the entrance to the covered marketplace.


The first stall we headed to was Yuri’s Sustainable Produce.  They had a wonderful deal where you fill your bag with anything from their tables for $8.  I decided to take a selection of their delicious fruit and vegetables.  They had some incredible looking black russian tomatoes that filled most of our bag, I couldn’t resist them!img_4478img_4479img_4477

The eggs we got from Egganic looked so good that I bought two dozen from them.


The mini capsicum from Kemps Creek Farm were so beautiful I had to take a photo of them.  We didn’t buy any capsicums, but did buy some fresh chillies, prickly pears and three bunches of ong choy (water spinach).  The ladies selling the produce propped up the capsicum box so that I could take a photo of them!  Then they all proceeded to tell me about the dangers of using prickly pears without gloves.  I must admit they are still in the refridgerator, I did get a spine in my finger as soon as I got them home.



We also brought home a piece of Berkshire free range pasture fed pork neck.  Unfortunately I didn’t get down the name of the grower, but the pork was certainly teriffic.

Joh and I headed home laden down with all kinds of goodies!


For dinner on Saturday night Joh cooked our Barramundi from Infinity Fish on the barbeque with kaffir lime leaves stuffed into its belly.  I used some of our organic yellow squash and garlic from Lettuce Deliver Organics and stir fried them with the water spinach.  A very nice meal indeed.



The Eveleigh Farmers’ Markets are held every Saturday and are well worth a visit.  I am so pleased about a weekly produce market, it’s a wonderful thing for Sydney.
