In the grounds of what was once a home for pregnant ‘wayward girls’, the foundation of Abbotsford Convent now holds a slow food farmers’ market on the fourth Saturday of every month.
The market was humming by 10am and after a thorough investigation of the stalls, my grocery budget bought:
– a shoulder of Bultarra Saltbush lamb, slow roasted with garlic, rosemary and potatoes;
– free range pork mince from The Gypsy Pig transformed into wontons and ants climbing trees;
– super-fresh broccoli transformed into oriechette with broccoli, anchovies and parmesan; and
– some dried fruit from Happy Fruit for my muesli mix (cheaper than cranberries, with a taste of chocolate!).
