Food Glorious Farmers Markets!

A gorgeous sunny Saturday morning,
So we decided to pop in to the Farmers Market at Sausmarez Manor before I headed in to work.

I love going up here, its a beautiful setting and always full of tempting things,
and being Guernsey you are always going to bump into a friend to have a natter with!

huge bushy strawberry plants

Ray Watts from Meadow Court Farm with his local meat, definately recomend it.

this is a first, Bean Jar Pasties, had to try one

 They are Rachel's brain child, and we were also tempted by scotch quails eggs,
some how doesn't feel as naughty as the full sized ones!
Local honey and jams

Still early in the morning,
but can promise you it will be packed by 11,
 we prefer to get in there first!

I love this stall, its run by 'The Caritas' a local charity that helps young people have hit tough times, by getting them back in touch with the land, growing and making their own food, which they then sell on to the public, I think its great, and never need an excuse to buy a slice of beetroot and chocolate cake

Rainbow Chard, have just planted my seedlings out,
but think it will be a few more weeks before they look as splendid as these

 Old Ormer shells, brought 2,
no idea what I am going to do with them yet......
My brother-in-law James selling his delicious local Rocquettes cider,
can never say no to a chilled glass of that either.

Sausmarez Manor, the back drop to the Market.

Am now sitting here in hailing the beetroot and chocolate cake,
that just smells delicious, really it is lucky its only once a week!
