Cornucopia

February 22, 2009

I think the last post like this I did was during the winter.

But guess how much this bowl of fruit and veges cost me, and all from the Waitangi Park markets?

It’s broccoli, a couple of spuds, corn, capsicums, plums, apricots, nectarines, peaches, and a cucmber. I had to leave out the 2kg of Roma tomatoes I found for $2kg (that are currently in the oven being semi-dried).

A modest amount of fruit. I also had to leave a bunch of the stone-fruit out because the bowl was over-flowing.

Bargains at the markets

November 2, 2008

If you hurry down to the markets this morning you can get some pretty decent bargains. Not only this 800g jar of home-made tomato relish for $4.50, but other great deals including:

  • Asparagus for $1.50 a bunch for the larger, slightly woody varieties, but $1.80 for the thin, tender stalks
  • Bananas for $2kg
  • Agria potatoes for $2.50kg
  • New Zealand hothouse tomatoes (i.e. not any imported varieties) for $3kg
  • Other great deals.

And don’t forget to buy a coffee, a crepe, fresh hand-made sausages, Waiora lamb, fish directly off the yummy dumplings, home-made cakes and biscuits, fresh Rewena, or pastries.
