Markets

I just love markets!!

Whether in Australia or overseas, I love to seek out a market and immerse myself in what it has to offer and gain an insight into the people of that community or city. For me, plunging right in the middle of something that engages all my senses – sounds, sights and smells, touch and always the taste of local treats. When stallholders put out samples of their produce it’s an invitation to not only taste but engage with that person. Great food brings people together. It’s how you turn your city into your community.

At all markets but particularly homemade / handmade and farmers’ market, spending time listening to the stories of the stallholders can make the experience even more delightful. It’s deeper than what they have on offer, it shows their heart and passion for what they make.

This page is dedicated to markets – all sorts of markets – Farmers’, Community, Trash & Treasure – whatever is technically a market (or not) I’ll write about.

I’m also keen to hear your favourite places to visit, I would like me to write about your market or event so feel free to comment below.
