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 :)
