Johanna’s of Green Gourmet Giraffe back with Carlton Farmers Market in Melbourne. Check out her swag of goodies: orange and poppy seed biscuits, Chef’s Own basil pesto (which is such a lovely brilliant green), chat potatoes, corn , broccoli, brussels sprouts, free range eggs, Milawa cheddar, hemp soap (by Scent Sational Handmade Soaps) and spelt bread.
Or you can talk along the roadside market in Crimea with Chossid as your guide.
Check out, too, the goodies in an Asian market in Philadelphia in the US – bene shouga (pickled ginger colored red), bonito (dried fish flakes), sakura ebi (shrimp), baby octopus, seaweed, a restock of some spices, and fresh fruit and veggies – enough to stock up Amanda’s (of Aspargus Thin) Japanese pantry.
Have you tasted sea urchin? Well, Kai of Bucaio in the Philippines tells us of her adventures in eating sea urchin from a market in Puerto Princessa, Palawan in the Philippines. (Note to Kai – sorry about this, I can’t seem to make the figure appear but if you click on the link, you can see the sea urchin in its full glory).
