North Sydney Produce Market

They come from all over the state to sell their produce once a month and are well rewarded.  People pay top money at this market – not me; I went to Flemington yesterday and paid less than half the price.  However, it’s hard to say ‘no’ to a Bacon and Egg roll at 8:30 a.m. and anyway I had an hour to kill before my pottery class at the community centre behind the market.  I’m glad I indulged because by the time we came out of pottery at 12:30 p.m., the market was over.

For some reason the term ‘prunes’ was not used to describe dried plums and a danish with almond paste is called a Bear Claw here.  Cakes are of course gluten free.

Four Dollars is exactly twice the price I paid at Flemington for a much larger fruit so I had to say ‘no’ to the girl with the smile.

$10 for the garlic – I wonder what the bush turkey thought of that – I didn’t ask because it was crossing the road; I don’t know why.  (The chicken didn’t cross because it was chicken.)
