Tea and Sunshine at the Farmers’ Market

This weekend we enjoyed a trip out to another local farmers’ market. There were stalls selling fruit and vegetables, local apple juice, free range chickens, rare breed pork, cold pressed rapeseed oil, homemade chilli chutneys, organic dog biscuits and more! The sun shone, the stallholders were cheery and friendly and we had a lovely time. We especially enjoyed sitting down and enjoying a cup of loose leaf organic chai tea, brewed in a proper teapot and served in bone china cups. Wonderful! We also indulged ourselves in gluten free brownies from a lovely lady whose entire range of cakes were gluten and dairy free. Check out her website.


The boys are now up to the summer months on their produce calendars and enjoying the promise of lots more colours!

Here are Waif’s:

    Hi, the boys’ produce calendars look really great. I’ve tagged the link for the curriculum for a future project.

    Your farmers market trip looks like such fun! I swear, looking at your boys’ calendars makes me realize that there is all kinds of produce I don’t even think about!…time to expand my fruit and vegetable horizons!

  3. I love the produce calendars – what a lovely idea!

      Thanks Hannah. They have really enjoyed it too – and keen to make some for next year for relatives abroad so they get to draw different fruit and veg.

  5. Those calendar pages are a great idea. Your sons are very talented artists, you must be very proud.
