Farmer’s Markets

I love shopping at the farmers markets. It’s great because it ensures you’re eating seasonal produce, whereas at supermarkets they can store some fruits of veggies for ages before they even hit the shelf. So you’re food is fresher, it’s sooo much more flavoursome, you support locals & is mostly super cheap! It’s also just so nice to avoid the shopping centre!

This is a simple hearty salad with all ingredients from the Lismore Farmers Markets.

Mesculin lettuce mix, eggplant, zucchini, tomatoes, green beans, mixed olives & red onion.

I pan fried the thin slices of zucchini & eggplant in olive oil until they had softened and got some colour. A balsamic dressing goes well, 1 part vinegar to 2 parts good quality extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, some garlic, and you’re good to go. Fetta would be nice too!
