There it is…our first market stall!
It was lovely to meet people who’d been following us online, or had heard of us through the Toowoomba food coop…or who were just happy to see some organic produce at the PCYC markets and stopped by to say so.
A lot of people asked if we’d be back next week. At this stage market stalls will be occasional for us. Though it went pretty well, it’s a huge time commitment, and just about a whole day is lost. Then there’s getting babysitting for the bulk of our children, losing half of our only day off (Saturday) preparing for the markets…I think we’d have to restructure our week and cut back on farm gate hours to be able to regularly attend markets!
The market atmosphere was lovely, and we were blessed to have our stall right near the lady who sells heirloom seedlings (so interesting to talk to!) and Henricka, who sells the best organic sourdough I’ve ever tried, plus her beautiful ferments. Henricka came over to us periodically to let us know how we could ferment our produce. I had no idea cos lettuce was fermentable! And she also gave us a try of her delicious radish ferment.
The next market we’d like to try will be the Sunday Cabarlah markets (on the 29th of this month).
