Tasmanian Farm Gate market haul

It's been a while since I shared a market haul, so here's what I got at the farmer's market today. Lots of deliciousness!

Clockwise from top left: cumquats, rocket, an amazing yoghurt with berry topping, chocolate caramel and macadamia nut slice, wallaby burgers, lemons, with ciabatta in the middle.


The bread, burgers and rocket will be our lunch for today.
I haven't had cumquats before - any suggestions on how to use them?

Update: a pic of today's lunch! It was a beautiful day in Hobart today, and this was the first time we've got the BBQ going since last summer. The burgers were fantastic, topped with provolone cheese, bbqed mushrooms, capsicum, tomato, avocado, rocket and chutney. Delicious, but huge - I only ate half of mine. Saving the rest for lunch tomorrow!



  1. You can pop kumquats in your mouth just as they are. Skin and all. Just wash them and hold the green stem and put it all in your mouth. When you bite into it, the juices will squirt out in your mouth. You can also eat the pips. Very yummy fruit :)

  2. I did just that, and quite liked them! I gave half of one to J who made the funniest face from the tartness, hehe. The rest I ended up simmering with sugar and water and serving over a rich chocolate cake - was yum.
