For this weeks inspiration at Our Beautiful World (#76) the prompt is MARKETS, I have some fun snaps of a couple of local bush or country markets in our region. Most are just ordinary families
with a passion for their craft or activity and so hold a stall to sell their products.
A variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables, home grown
a few bee keepers selling their honey
this one selling Jerky (dried meat)
and the growing popularity for Organic grown....preserves here
Many stalls selling handmade clothing
or imported cheap clothing from Asia.
This lady caught my eye - all dresses in red with a fur trimmed hat, she was selling Lemon Curd - YUM!!, Pickled Onions, Honey and fruit jams. She'd parked her van under a lovely shady tree and was selling Bromeliads so of course I had to add one to my collection.
The plant stalls are always an attraction for me
This one was selling Carnivorous plants - very intriguing
In Australia most towns and cities have a huge variety of markets that are held on a regular weekly or monthly basis and I love to check them all out...my favourite would have to me the Mindal Beach Markets held in Darwin, Northern Territory over the 'dry' season - they have the most amazing food stalls from all over the world.
Hope you've enjoyed my walk through the markets where I live, so please pop over to the Our Beautiful World blog to visit the other team members blogs and their Market photos, we'd also love it if you like to join in and share your photos.
