Squash from Kings Heath Farmers Market

Went to the Farmers Market in Kings Heath, Birmingham. There were only a dozen or so stalls, set out in a sort of circle just outside All Saints Church, but some fine produce nevertheless. We got some Jasmine Flower Tea and this squash. Haven’t decided how to cook it yet; choice between roasting it and making a warming autumnal risotto. Yum either way :)

Moseley on Farmers Market Day.

Was passing through Moseley this morning when we noticed the Farmers Market in full swing. The weather was good for a change and there were plenty of people about. The area by the bus stop, opposite the Barclays bank had all the food stalls and the Alcester Road side, opposite HSBC had the arts and crafts stalls. We bought some organic apples grown in … Argentina … hmm!

Birmingham International Food Festival

I’ve yet to transfer the old posts to the new bongovongo but I will. Anyway, we were at the food festival in brum today — it’s been running for a week now — it’s like a cousin of the extremely successful Christmas Market except that it is slightly more international. There’s French biscuits, Caribbean chicken, Spanish paella (delicious) as well as local farm produce — hot pork sandwiches, ostrich burgers and local speciality cheeses.

It finishes tomorrow but I hope and expect that it will be back next year.
