Passionfruit & Pretzels

Sunday | Passionfruit and Pretzels

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!

Passionfruit & Pretzels

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!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
