Orange & Blue Mountains produce

FH Alphie has just returned from a weekend with his parents (well, Sunday and Monday, so not quite a weekend). His parents live in Orange, about 4 hours west of Sydney. FMIL collected a few goodies for us from the monthly Farmers Market on Saturday, and FH Alphie topped it up with a trip to Totally Local, a produce shop based on the 100-mile concept of eating locally grown and produced foods.

The Haul

As well as shopping in Orange, FH Alphie also dropped in to Hominy Sourdough Bakery in Katoomba on the way home, and FMIL gave us a few treats from her garden.

Trunkey Creek bacon & chorizo, mmmmm bacon....

From the farmers market we got Navel oranges, lemons, Fuji apples, potatoes (three types, but FMIL can't remember what they are!), Trunkey Creek double smoked bacon and 'cheeky' chorizo. FH Alphie picked up goat sausages and Orange Mountain verjus from Totally Local.

FMIL gave us half a dozen eggs from their chooks, and a few branches of bay leaves from her bay tree (and a pumpkin pie and some blueberry mini muffins!).

Lastly, FH Alphie and his mum stopped in at Bills Beans for a cup of coffee, and FH Alphie got two bags of beans, 200g each of the Byng Street Blend, and the Brazil Santa Clara.

I got home from work today to find FH Alphie unpacking all this from the car - what a way to start the week!!
