Week 37: The farmer’s market

Frenchs Forest Farmer’s Market

Sometimes know as the ‘Campbelltown by the sea’ (a joke for Sydney locals only, sorry)- Frenchs Forest Organic Markets are a hive of activity come Sunday morning. Amazing produce, stalls and weird people galore, this was going to be an interesting one for my sarcasm meter…  Continue reading
