We made a tour of the market, making mental notes of what we would stop and buy on the way home, before heading to the outdoor games section. The boys love this bit. We all tried our hands at some of the different games and Andrew and Reuben stopped to play a game of draughts. We arrived at lunchtime so the supervisors weren't around for the assault course, but the boys were happy throwing, hooking, balancing and shooting their way around the other games.
Despite the market celebrating sweet chestnuts, this year we didn't come away with any. The first year we bought some we spent hours peeling them and then left them for too long and had to throw them away. The second year I bought some sweet chestnut flour and failed to find a recipe that inspired me so I think it ended up being given to a friend. So this year we bought walnuts instead. Reuben found himself a large semi-precious stone from a man who finds them locally. We found some lovely honey to give to friends we were seeing that evening who were celebrating their wedding anniversary, and we couldn't help but pick up some oysters for an afternoon treat.
What seasonal produce are you celebrating at this time of year?
