buying fresh

Ugh is all I have to say!  I HATE it when I spend money on a vegetable or fruit at the grocery store and with in days it has gone bad!  I seriously wish I had a garden, sadly I am not really a good gardner so not sure if it would help much, but the Sydney Markets have definitely been a help.  I love my co-op which I started with some friends just over a year ago.  It really makes a difference, not just in the amount of money we spend, but the quality, the taste and how long our produce will last.

What I would also like to tap into is an 'organic' growers market to go to.  Some of the farmers at the Sydney markets are organic, but usually they don't have a label and you have to ask around. 

Needless to say, I am looking forward to my visit to the markets this Friday in preparation for Saturday night.  And I also do enjoy a good chat with a farmer or two :)

it's always best to try and buy quality fruit and vegetables from a good shop or market. i hate it when there's sub-standard produce in the supermarkets which is sometimes already rotting.
