Capsicums, Crepes & Homemade Lemonade

How was everyone’s weekend? We started Saturday at the Powerhouse Markets at New Farm which was… tempting. I am no cook nor do I fake any talent in the kitchen (unless you count pouring a drink, which in that case, I am as professional as they get). Despite this lack of cooking ability I love nothing more than joining the masses and buying fresh foods at the markets that I will more than likely do nothing with.

A few hours after wandering around I had fresh strawberries, egg pasta, a punnet of mixed mini capsicums (or baby Peppers for you European folk) sitting in my bag and a delicious glass of homemade iced lemonade sitting in my stomach. Throw in a lemon & sugar crepe for good measure and I was officially out of cash and full of fresh foods. As I walked by the lemonade stand the man in charge was yelling “Come and taste the Sunshine, we have happiness in a glass, you won’t be able to stop smiling”. Now I’m no sales man but promising people the taste of sunshine is a pretty big call…. lucky he delivered. We left with my bag full of foods that to this day sit lonely and unused in my fridge, but for the chance to taste Sunshine I can say it was well worth it.

Hope your Wednesday is being kind to you. What are you doing this weekend?

    I love markets like these, they're always so fun and exciting.

    I think I might do a bit of shopping this weekend, what I do best. I hope you have a great weekend as well. 🙂

    There's never a point in me going to a fresh food market because I don't cook either haha but I could definitely do something with the bread!

    I'd been wondering where that stall was ever since I saw it on Instagram! It's so cool. Even though, like you, I'm not really a fan of iced tea, I'm definitely tempted by this one 🙂 x

    It's always the same stuff, but each time I go I like it more. I think it's all the fancy types of bread that keep me coming back!

    You know what is cute… the way you explained in a post how to pronounce your name hahaha. I loved it!

    It's a wee bit cute isn't it! I have more of the "stand in front and wait for the owner to move out of the way so I can get my photo just right" type of approach to these things

    My fav too!!! I could retake them over and over and over again.

    Ohh you don't? I think I take for granted how many we have in my city. The best thing is grabbing a fresh breakfast when you're there (Saturday's choice was an egg and bacon roll! mmmmmmm)

    Your photos are beautiful! I like going to the farmers market too, sometimes I don't buy anything but to me it's just fun walking around lol

    Thanks Jessica you're very kind. I often don't buy anything either, I just like looking and knowing that fresh produce is available should I ever feel inspired to do something with it. Hope you had a great weekend 🙂
