A gorgeous morning at the Abbotsford Convent farmers' market!

This morning we headed down to the Abbotsford Convent for their farmers' market. We love the convent and often go down to wander through the gardens. They have a great craft market there too, but we'd never been to the farmers' market before. We got there fairly early, around 9.30am which turned out to be a good move as we got a park straight away; when we were leaving the line of cars to enter snaked around half the block! 




We really really enjoyed the market! We'll definitely be going again! Such an array of beautiful produce it was difficult to decide what to try/buy. We wandered through to the back courtyard and I picked up some beautiful Holy Goat La Luna goats cheese, they had some gorgeous varieties on tasting and I was very tempted to get more but unfortunately M isn't the biggest goats cheese fan! 





We also had an AMAZING salted caramel doughnut at the Movida bakery stand... Unfortunate we gobbled it a little too quickly and we didn't get a snap!





We picked up the cheese, some lovely free range eggs, some swiss brown mushies for brekkie tomorrow, some dee-lish rhubarb pickle and some Dutch Cream potatoes which we're going to have with our dinner tonight!

And here's the delicious meal we cooked with those fabulous potatoes! M's favourite chicken schnitzels, salad fresh from the garden with dill, garlic, lemon and radish, and potatoes boiled and tossed in extra virgin olive oil and fresh parsley!
