Rain didn't stop play

Well it was market day today and the rain decided to show it's face. Not just any old rain either but torrential rain! I sadly have to admit that we had nowhere near our usual amount of visitors, but the 70 or so we did have seemed to enjoy the stalls and had a cup of tea and a cake before heading off back into the rain again.

Even though some of the locals didn't make it we did receive a visit from a lady from Northampton who happened to be down in Essex staying with relatives. They however travelled to us all the way from Ilford after discovering our market on the Where Can We Go website.

This lovely picture was taken by Julie Morrisey. Looking through the cyclamen on Christine's plant stall to see a single solitary wet shopper entering the centre gates.

Heards Farm Organic Veg

I bought a fantastic orange winter squash from Heards Farm at last months market and finally got round to cooking it last night. I decided to roast it in oil with herbs and Murgez and served it on a bed of lemon and garlic cous cous. It was deleicious and despite all the added flavours the squashes own flavour came through beautifully.

Roger always has a great selection of unusual squashes on his stall at the market. Why not come along on Sunday and see what you can pick up for a Halloween, firework feast.
