Moss Street Market

I have always been a lover of Farmer's Markets and I was delighted to see the tents go up for the Moss Street Market this Saturday. Handily, this little market is just down the street from our house. We couldn't resist doing a little tour around before getting on with our day. The market appears slightly larger this year, with more variety of food and crafts. We bought homemade lemon loaf from one seller and a dense chewy baguette from another. There was some interesting pottery in the offing and we couldn't resist snapping up a really snazzy vase decorated with a skull (the design was more irreverent than Goth). We were tempted by many other items including homemade preserves, pickles and relishes/chutneys, tortiere and pork pies, artisan cheeses, jewelry and a really great clothing booth with fab hoodies, skirts and tops with irreverent silkscreened prints. There was also wildflower honey and some lovely soaps (one of which looked exactly like a lemon and smelled gloriously citrusy).

I'll be excited to return to the market again over the next few months and sample some more of the wares. We enjoyed the lemon loaf with a little lemon curd dolloped on top with a cup of tea the next morning.
