    I’m so jealous of these amazing markets! Ours is a little small by comparison, though still fun.

    I’m looking forward to exploring your recipes for T&C!

    thanks Gay – it is so interesting to see all the different markets – I wish I could visit each and every one but I have trouble visiting all those around Melbourne so it really is wishful thinking!
