Photo-diary of a market (and some self-indulgent doggie snaps)

There’s nothing like a good market. As an enthusiastic food fan, I really enjoy a great eateries market – though my chronic indecision when faced with so much deliciousness drives my loved ones a little crazy. I popped into the charming and quiet 1 Fox weekly market with friends, my camera and an empty stomach this past weekend and got some lovely snaps of the place.

What can I say, I'm a sucker for puns.

Meaty sweetness is a big foodie trend at the moment and though I could never get on board with bacon chocolate (too meaty) I really LOVED this biltong jam - very South African, and sweet in a savoury way, much like onion marmalade. Look up 'Jamable' for this treat.

Fresh basil, spinach and other veggies grow outside the market

And, as promised, some doggie snaps (I love these pooches!)
