Today, the 4 of us got up early and made our way there by 9am. The weather was horrid – dreary, cold and raining.. like it was London in winter! It didn’t deter us though, so we braved the weather with umbrellas but still got really wet walking around. Everything was soggy but there were still lots of people at the markets, I guess it was just too good to be missed! Lots of great fresh food and almost all of the stalls feature stuff that you wouldn’t normally get at a regular supermarket.. many farmers sell their produce directly from those stalls, which is cool. Anyway, took lots of photos!
The Good Living Growers’ Market
Wet wet wet
So pretty they looked fake
Gourmet sausages.. mmmmm..
Chris’ sausage & onions on a bun
The silly man cooking it, hee!!
Rain rain go away
Not yet satisfied with just ONE market, we headed onto ANOTHER market – The Rocks Markets. This one’s on every weekend and is super-touristy, but is still fun to wander through. The rain also cleared up and the sun came out, to our delight! We sticky-beaked everywhere but didn’t buy anything at all, very good self control 😉

Pretty cloth stitchings
Gorgeous silver bangles
Pretty & colourful glasses
And, rather randomly, we then hit the David Jones food hall and it was bustling with people, so I took a sneaky video of it all whilst we shopped til we dropped.
And as if all that activity wasn’t enough for the day, went for dinner at Gilroy Hotel with some friends.
And it’s the next morning right now, woke up at 7am as we’re now off to the ROYAL EASTER SHOW!! Hurray!!!!! Spending the whole day there 😀
