City Farm..



All hyped up from a week of market shopping in Sydney, Aimee was reluctant to 'super'market shop for fresh fruit and veg yesterday.. determined to remind her that Perth has equally fab markets we set off for City Farm in East Perth. Once a scrap metal yard City Farm is now a vibrant garden market only five minutes from the city. First up, breakfast in the City Farm Cafe.. coffee et croissant, parfait!



Reminders of scrap metal days and a field of dreams greens!


... and there it is, that backward glance as we were heading to the car.. mission accomplished :) Hope that your weekend is just as fruitful, take care.. p.s. HUGE book fair today, yes I do have the correct date this time!

  4. You're so lucky and I'm so jealous! We do have a "farmer's market" in the town square on Saturday mornings but we haven't visited it yet. I guess we should do that before I crab about our lack of good veggies! :) Beautiful food, beautiful place, beautiful photos!

  9. Farmers markets have become very popular here too and they are always wonderful places to visit and grab something good to eat while you are walking around. ;-)

  10. It looks like such a good use for what was a very different place. I do like that stone bench, and the market looks popular.

  16. Great to have fresh produce so close to the city. A trip to the local fruit and vegetable market is a must whenever I am in a new city. I often think that the true city is on its markets.
