*Put Some Pork on Your Fork
Sometimes markets are like tattslotto.... even though you played the game, you'll never come out a winner in the end.
My older sister came along to play donkey this time around. Lucky, because the cobblestones are a little bit of an obstacle for my trolleys.
The marquee and table set up was fantastic. The weather and site selection was terrible, and the signage was non-existent. We couldn't even find it to set up, and we had a map with the location marked!
Then combine that with all of the lane closures around the Flemington area for the MS bike ride, and it's no wonder there were no customers.
We made the most of it by chatting to our lovely stall neighbour, and thankfully we also had some visits from wonderful peeps who braved the rain and wind and sunshine and humidity and rain and wind and........
Never one to miss an opportunity when we get to pack up nice and early, we headed off to Kensington where we visited Onabee.
I bought my sister a lovely Red Parka print as a thankyou for her donkey duties, and I found that they stock my favourite A5 size sketch books (so excited about that as the shop where I was buying them has since closed).
A day out just wouldn't be a day out without some good coffee and good food.
Next door to Onabee is a lovely cafe named The Premises. I had the Crispy Bacon and Egg Roll with Spicy Tomato Relish (without the eggs as I don't eat egg)...
.... and my sister had the Pulled Pork with Coleslaw and Spicy Apples.
I'll definitely be heading back there, it was delicious!
* Sorry about the post title, but I couldn't help myself. When else will I be including a photo of pork which warrants such a silly title?
