     Hi

    I was visting a friend last weekend and after a long and bracing walk instead of offering me a cup of tea or coffee he offered me a cup of soup! It wasn't particularly cold or wintery outside but the idea of a cup of broth was very appealing. So I said yes please and very shortly I was cradling a cup of delicious Ham and Barley soup. It was variation on Pea and Ham but it worked really well and I was began to think about how versatile a dish soup is.

     Hi

    Some of you will have noticed a new stallholder these last few weeks. Lea Dobson is known as a forager. She has been foraging in the forests outside Melbourne for twenty years and know exactly where to find the hidden growths of Pine Mushrooms. The real name for these big and fantastic looking fungi is Saffron Milk Caps but they are commonly known as pine mushrooms.

     Hi

    Is it true? Superfoods are not so super after all. I was watching television last night and surfed into the Checkout' who were examining the claims of 'Superfoods' like Goji berries and Chai seeds and Kale and all the others and they couldn't find any authoritive medical evidence to confirm any of the claims of the marketing departments.

     Hi

    Its that time of year when we can start relying on the versatility  and ubiquity of the potato once more as we plan our menu's. The humble spud stays with us right through the summer in salads and chips but its not naturally a hot weather food (unless its teamed with fish and eaten straight from the paper wrapping on the beach in the evening)

     Hello

    Yes... We are open on Easter Sunday.

    Its the question everyone has been asking and we have tried to spread the message through the stallholders and with blackboards at the market, we've even goine to press with the news, but if you haven't been able to get to the market these last two weeks... here is the news. We Are open and its business as Usual.

    Hi

    I really enjoy the changing of the season, not just because I like 'Weather' or because I'm  a born and bred Melbournite and therefore changeable weather is my birthright, but because the new seasons bring back old food favourites and reminds me of how good markets are. This is one the of unremarked upon benefits of eating seasonally.

     Hello

    Usually I try to find a good news story for this section or at least something interesting to either ponder over or get hot and bothered about, but this week its more reflection on community and the value of knowing where our food comes from.

     Hi

    I have just realised I missed my annual rant about the blatant commercialisation of Easter. I usually get hot under the collar at the end of January when the first packets of cheap Hot Cross Buns appear on the shelves of the 'Down Down' shops and the 'Pokie Supermarkets'. Its just not right commercialising Easter so far ahead... its a bit like trying to sell Christmas Hams in September ... Oh... hang on...

     Hello

    I'm very happy to be able to speak about this subject because it gives me the chance to mention and spruik for our silent but important partners in the market. the Mt Alexander College. Some years ago when we were looking for a new home after leaving the Showgrounds Principal Alan Davies was far sighted enough to realise that the school and the market could collaborate very effectively with each other, and we have.
