A farmer’s market menu

Sorry for my long absence. I was (am) sick, and just haven’t felt like blogging. But I have some great photos to share from the other week, when Lisa, Nelly and I went to the amazing Brickworks Farmer’s Market, created delicious eats, and met up with Marlie in the evening to consume said food. We made so many kinds of raw desserts! Blueberry lavendar cheesecake, apricot macarons, mango mousse & peach-ginger icebox cake. I didn’t take great photos of the finished results, so check out Nelly’s and Lisa’s posts for more details. This post will be brief on the text, and heavy on the photos.

Vegan nanaimo bars? How could we not buy one?

Raw chocolate!

Apricots. We bought a LOT.

Gerkins!

Kale plant for sale…

I bought a stevia-sweetened lemonade. The verdict? Not bad, although definitely different. The absence of sugar, even though it still tasted sweet, definitely made me sip slower!

Apricot macarons! Recipe adapted from Matthew Kenney’s new Everyday Raw Desserts. Read all about them on Lisa’s blog.

That’s all for now! I’ll be back soon with some pics of Sweet Gratitude’s chocolate mint swirl cheesecake, which is setting in the freezer right now for a work barbecue event tomorrow. I love sharing raw desserts with non-veg, non-raw folks!!
