Penzance Farmers’ Market

20 May

Today I helped out at the farmers’ market on a stall for The Morrab Library. We sold some books, some sandwiches, tickets to tomorrow’s Hidden Gardens of Penzance and raffle tickets. This is the fabulous John Piper painting which we’ll be raffling later in the summer (sorry it’s propped up at a funny angle):

And, of course, we all had time to wander around and do a bit of shopping as well. The food on the stalls was all so tempting.

How did I manage to miss taking pictures of all the lovely cakes, brownies and meringues? And the pasties and pies? And the gorgeous veg?

Ah, well. The plants and flowers will make up for it:

I came home with a bag full of asparagus, broad beans, peas, flowers and two of the biggest most luscious meringues I’ve ever seen.
