It’s Friday – You’ll find me at the Mullum Markets

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”

It’s Friday. I look forward to Friday all week. Why? I get to have breakfast at the Mullumbimby Farmers Markets.

As I fed out hay to my cows this morning my own thoughts were filled with breakfast…

There’s this delicious Thai sticky rice roll, filled with spiced sweet potato. Oh it’s fabulous.  All chewy and warm and good. It’s a breakfast favourite.

Or maybe something from the Sicilian Nomad’s kitchen – a fry up of fresh seasonal fare. Or miso and some freshly made sushi hand rolls. Something from the French Patisserie?

And chai, or a good local coffee.

Today we’ll eat our breakfast and chat to whoever’s sitting at our communal table, we’ll say hello to friends, have a lovely social time, and then we’ll fill our baskets with herbs and vegetables, fresh baked sourdough bread, good local ladyfinger bananas, eggs, and whatever else looks good.

I think I’ll buy myself a bunch of flowers too.

We’ll have all of that done and be home again mid morning, and I’ll have the rest of the day to write and work, to nap, and to dig in the garden when it gets a little cooler in the late afternoon.

Oh, I love Fridays!

Sending all my love to you. Or maybe, I’ll see you at the Mullum Markets too! 🙂

  1. Something from the French Patisserie for me thank you Nicole … it’s Friday after all. 🙂 Enjoy your visit to the markets and I think you deserve an extra big bunch of colourful flowers for all the colour you bring to my life. <3

  2. Oh I look forward to being there hopefully next week, do they hold markets on other days there too? Do you know of other markets in the area that are held weekdays?

    • Ros, Mullumbimby showgrounds every Friday, Byron Bay markets on Thursday, Bangalow Markets every Saturday morning behind the pub, Lismore Organic Markets on Tuesday at the showgrounds, and Saturday for standard Farmers/ Markets. Ocean Shores outside the Library on Saturday mornings! And then there are the Sunday Markets – which are a bit of everything, not just food…

      • Oh the choice! 🙂 thank you.
        I’ll share this info with my fellow campers & look forward to attending at least one of them x

  3. I must get over to Mullum Markets…have a treaties from the French Bakery for me…and yes to those bright sunny gerberas…X

  4. I’m sure you’re having a great time Nicole – it all sounds so enticing and looks very colourful. Thanks for posting where all the markets will be held next week – especially the Mullum one. Have a fun-filled weekend. xox
