Lyttleton Market

Every Saturday the Lyttleton Farmers Market fills the Lyttleton School yard with fresh produce, baking, meat, and a range of sauces, jams, pickles, sandwiches and more. Each week there is a live band and each week, a happy crowd of people doing their weekly shopping, sight-seeing, and socializing. It is a happy and jovial atmosphere with lots of little kids, even more smiles and a plentitidue of delicious foods. Last weekend I brought my camera to try and capture some of the feelings the market evokes. Enjoy!

And at the end of the day we go home to fill our pantry with the delicious goodies we purchased at the market. Our dinners on Saturday night are a constant surprise, depending largely on what looks good at the market that day. Last weekend it was the gurnard, caught fresh that morning, cooked with some lemons I found in someones compost bin after they had pruned their lemon tree and some lovely young fennel and cinnamon basil. Delicious!


  1. Raiding a compost bin! A classic grad student moment.

    Love following your adventures.

  2. Spent a few minutes this morning at probably the last of the season Dawson Farmers' Market. Smaller by a wide margin but food just as fresh, potatoes, celery, lettuce, tomatoes, aubergines, and more. Last week I got a pound of saskatoons that I'm still enjoying for breakfast.

    That fish looks pretty good.
