Farmer’s Market

Late Summer Veg

Hmmm. Corn, blueberries, dark-skinned cucumber… wait, did I miss summer? Last time I posted a veg haul ’round these parts, it was the early-summer stuff of fresh greens, baby carrots and peas. A whole three months ago. Read more…

Peas & Carrots & Other Veg

Hmm, looking at that photo, I’m thinking that I should have bought a bit more at the market this weekend. It’s already Tuesday (where does the time go?) and most of that food is already gone. Read more…

Mother’s Day Veg

Honestly? I only just remembered that today was Mother’s Day. No, I haven’t called my Mum yet, and yes, I’ll call her soon. Probably. My family doesn’t take these “Hallmark Holidays” very seriously, and anyway, I’ll be seeing her in person tomorrow. Read more…

May Day Veg

Yes, May Day has come and gone, but hey- these veg were bought then, so why not? A lot of what you see above is actually cooked and eaten by now (Thursday already! How did that happen?!). I guess May has been a busy month so far, what with my parents’ visit and other commitments. Thankfully, it hasn’t been too busy for market shopping. Read more…

New Term Veg

It’s not only a new term for me at school (starting tomorrow) but a new season in London. Honestly, the past couple days have convinced me that we’ve skipped right over Spring and gone straight into Summer. Of course, as my Mum said to me earlier today, it might be back to Spring or even Winter in a couple days, so I’m enjoying it while I can. Read more…

Bunches of Veg

It’s almost Monday here in London, but I wanted to get this week’s Farmer’s Market post up before I went to sleep. This week is the one chance I’ll have to be “off” before classes start up again in 8 days time, and I want to take full advantage of it. Some relaxing, some reading, some long walks and of course- lots of cooking. Read more…

Cake Veg and Muffins

You might think from the title of this post that I’ve been thinking a lot about sweets lately. You’d be right. Maybe it’s the stress of my end-of-term project deadline or just the is-it-or-isn’t-it-Spring-yet weather we’ve been having lately, but “regular food” hasn’t really been exciting me these days. Sweets are much more interesting, and always in season. Read more…

Not So Green Veg

It was such a lovely day earlier. I say “was” because in true London style, the clouds have now moved in and the sky that was a crystal-clear blue is now sort of white in colour. Still, I suppose it could be worse- at least it’s not grey (yet). Read more…

Valentine Veg

Friends, I am so on top of things today. I was out of bed at 7, doing homework by 8, cooking by 9 at at the market at 10:15 sharp. I almost don’t want to say anything for fear of jinxing it, but I have a feeling it’s going to be a very productive week. Read more…

Sparse Veg

I’m not sure what the problem was today- was is that the produce at the farmer’s market was sparse, or was it my enthusiasm for shopping? Probably a bit of both. In any case, I dragged myself out of the house around noon today, and was back home (with a decidedly light shopping bag) a mere 15 minutes later. Read more…
