Today the morning has dawned almost ridiculously sunny, with a few fluffy clouds here and there, and an early-autumn chill in the air that is very much encouraging for taking a long walk in town.
The historic haymarket is now an interesting place for buying unusual food ingredients, and consists of the open-air market as well as a market hall. There are also a few specialty food shops in the vicinity, such as my favorite oriental supermarkets. In the hall itself there are spice merchants, a South-American butcher, and cheese shops – and the open-air market tends to have just about anything you can ask for provided it is in season (and some things which are not). I’m hoping to find a few quinces, since I am planning to make quince preserves for the winter, and see what else is interesting and available.
I promise to take pictures.
