Every first Saturday, the SMH Growers Market opens at the Pyrmont Park along Pirrama Road in Pyrmont. Right across from the Star City Casino and Hotel! Mum and Alex took this first trip to this market. I have known about this a long time but I guess wasn't too keen on driving before 8am to the city on a Saturday. And right in the middle, that's when I was perked up to actually do it.
It was lovely seeing all these growers - from fresh produce to cheeses, butchers, fresh pastas, breads and even pet food! There were heaps of unique stalls. The cheese and truffle stalls were quite inviting. Alex had a lovely time too with a bacon and egg on sour dough for breakfast, while watching Matthew Evans on stage for a cooking demonstration and book signing of his latest - The Real Food Companion. We bought some nice crusty Italian sour dough bread, sausages straight from the cattle farmer, fresh herbs and vegetables. It was worth the early morning drive. Will most definitely do it again next month.
