Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Theme Day - Open Air Market

Sunday Market
I love going to Open Air Markets, or Farmers Markets as we say. There's something about stepping out into the fresh air, inhaling the sweet smell of Mother Nature with a gentle breeze blowing softly on your face as you stroll along the stalls looking for a bargain, or some fresh produce. Then sitting down later under a shady tree with a picnic lunch and a nice hot cuppa. Mmmm...heavenly

I usually make a day of it and go to one of the country bakeries for afternoon tea and stop off and wander around a country town on the way home.

This is also one of my favorite things to do, sadly I don't do it enough. There's a big one here in the city, maybe I'll go to it on Saturday :)....thanks for the idea.

Looks like a very relaxed affair, and sunshine always helps --- although you might have a bit too much of that in OZ.

Nice backdrop of stately trees.

Yes we have them up here too. THey often come to us, but to go out to them along the Hawkesbury and up near Windsor/Richmond is a joy!

Hi BFG...nice to hear from you again...I've been on a bit of a hiatus, which is continuing, but I appreciate your comments very much.

I, too, love open air markets, but I forgot all about theme day.

Best wishes to you!
