After pounding through a hilly 8km on Saturday morning (yay me!) and reorganising the family room it was no surprise that Sunday was a little slower and a little lazy.
Dave and E headed off to the indoor skatepark due to the
rain drizzly-30-minute-mist, so after Mum and I finished gaping at the rain drizzly-30-minute-mist we headed to the local market.
I hadn’t been in a few months and it was a beauty. Amazing craft, produce, plants, trinkets and treasures everywhere. And the food!
It’s lovely buying locally, the Nana of one of Ethan’s classmates was selling these passionfruit at less than half the price of the supermarket – if E hadn’t snuck “more than three” and paid the hefty price of a extremely sore tummy later on in the evening he would have been very pleased with this bounty of scrummy late summer fruit. See that soft pretzel, I die. A whole stall with homemade soft pretzels of every description; classic, cheese, margherita, bacon, sugar and cinnamon……. I showed some restraint and returned home with three classics for the americanos.
The stalls inside the hall were positively bustling with crafters, I picked up this wooden ring stacker for bubs and two handmade merino singlets for $16! These are absolutely the softest merino items I have found so far and the lady that made them was equally lovely.
Did any of you score some bargains at markets this weekend? Kumeu Show up next on Saturday-Sunday, can’t hardly wait!
