Guest Post: Seasonal Food Markets



Wild mushrooms in Antwerp

To get you in the #Tuesfoodmarket spirit we have a treat a guest post from a couple of foodie world traveling bloggers, of some cool markets around the world from their travels, enjoy and thanks Natalie and Tim. Tim is a chef with 15 years of experience and Natalie a Jane of all trades, florist, office manager and more, they had a deli in Vancouver but have sold up and are on the adventure of a lifetime food and travel blogging!

Seasonal markets, filled with a diversity of fresh, locally produced and wild foods, are a wonderful reflection of local culture.  The benefits of buying from markets at home and while traveling are numerous.  Not only is it good for your health and the local economy, you're helping the growers support their lifestyle, send their kids to school, and put food on their own tables.

 Locally produced prosciutto in Tuscany
 Dried mushrooms in Munich
 Market stall in Ardeche
 Artisanal nougat in Les Vans 
 Fresh bread in Ardeche
 Wild mushrooms in Paris
 Great big Brie at a market in Paris

 One third of the food that we eat has been grown by farmers.  
Have you hugged a farmer today?

  19. It's so much nicer to shop at a market than at a grocery store isn't it?

  20. There is nothing quite like the grass roots experience of visiting and patronizing local farmers' markets. I cherish these folks for their dedication to producing more healthy produce from their own hands. Great post, Rebbeca, for a wonderful 'fresh' time of year!
