I usually work weekends during summer and on the off chance I do get to have the weekend off, I love to get up early and head to the markets. To be honest, when I had a weekend off recently, I had forgotten what it was like to have a free weekend and the vibe going to the markets on a Saturday morning was 10 times more relaxed than on a Friday!
The South Melbourne Market is my go-to. I find that they have a better range of organic produce compared to other markets in Melbourne and I pick up everything that we need for the week – fresh organic sourdough, kombucha, fresh juice and organic produce. Picking up fresh organic food from the markets makes me feel so good about the week ahead knowing that I will be putting nutrient dense food into my body.
Fresh bread is a must along with a big bunch of pretty flowers for the week ahead.
I like to end my market trip with a fresh juice and something to eat on the ride home, usually an apple and cinnamon scroll from the organic bakery. Yum!
