Flemington Markets


Yesterday we headed out to Flemington markets, it's a produce market where fresh fruit and veggies are sold by the box full at low prices, buyers can come and by in bulk or you can just get a few things. There were pungent smell, vibrant colours, exotic faces where fever-piched voices jostle for attention. We wandered around filling our carry bags with new and interesting fruit and veg. Eating handfuls of freshly roasted peanuts as we made our way back to the car.

  3. Such a big marked!
    We don't have them here in Norway.
    Still something I'm missing from the Netherlands!

  4. I always like visiting farmer's market. From the photographs of this market, I can guess that there are lot of Asian foods/vegetables on display. I love the fact that these leaves and veggies are so fresh and so green.
    Here, in our locality, there is a person who sells freshly roasted peanuts down the street. Sometimes, my husband buys them while coming back from office. I couldn't identify the last picture, green almonds perhaps ? But anyway, thanks for sharing these photographs with us.
    have a nice day !

    It's been awhile since I've ate asparagus, sigh!
    And it will be quite a few months to go! :)

  11. This market looks huge, I love the variety of produce and the different colours and textures, much better than shopping in a supermarket.

  15. Wow, what a gorgeous farmers market. Of course I zoomed right onto the eggs. There was a sign that read $7.00. Does that mean for a dozen of eggs? I enjoyed my visit this morning.
