✴ happy monday

ABorough Market on saturday. Ashamed to say I have never, ever been before.
Delighted to say that I will most definitely be going again!
It was packed. But just so lovely to be amongst crowds who just have such a thrill for food and freshly grown produce. Everything is just so delectably delicious. The smells of baked goods, freshly squeezed juice, bubbling pans and sizzling grills of cooked delights! Ahhh....bliss. 
I am always drawn to the pretty and unusual at these sorts of markets and find myself needing to buy items that you just can't find in the tesco 24 hour garage....globe artichoke, ostrich fillet, elderflower and gooseberry jam, spelt bread, ludicrously long cinnamon sticks.......
All the traders are just so very friendly and helpful there too, from the man who helped me choose a selection of flavoured turkish delight {my one weakness...!} to the lovely chap who gave me a demonstration of how to brew the perfect pot of darjeeling tea!

Have a delectable week. x


  1. Sounds amazing Sarah. Globe artichokes are one of those things I always wish I had a painting of.

  2. It's lovely isn't it? But a nightmare with kids. Did you see the meringues the size of your head? That's what I have to bribe mine with ;-)


  3. Mmmm Turkish delight! I also recently tried elderflower cordial mixed with soda water - incredibly refreshing for a cordial, and oh-so-tasty! Give it a go sometime :)

  4. I agree, borough market is awesome!

  5. Yum! I love fresh food markets! :)
