Looking for an antidote to a world where perfectly
good apples rot on the tree because they’re
not pretty/round/small enough for the major
supermarkets? Enter farmers markets, which have at
their heart the celebration and promotion of local,
predominantly fresh produce. Even better, you get
to talk to real people and growers as you shop.
Today there are 15 farmers markets scattered
throughout WA from Geraldton to Kallaroo,
Carnarvon to Albany. For a full list of markets near
you, visit farmersmarkets.org.au/markets and join

You’ve heard of preser ved lemons, but what about preser ved
limes? Three Birds is a local company making small-batch
artisan products including the latter. Salty, tart and just the
thing to add zip to your next couscous salad or tagine, you’ll
find them on sale at the quarterly Perth Upmarket in Crawley.
perthupmarket.com.au, or order online at threebirds.com.au.
There are gnocci and then there
are the soft, creamy gnocci
produced by Orlando ‘Mr Gnocchi’
Scolese (right). “People think that
gnocchi-making is hard,”
says the upbeat Neopolitan,
who offers relaxed group
gnocchi-making workshops in his
customers’ homes. “But the truth
is, anyone can do it.” Orlando
makes a range of sauces and
specialises in unusual fillings.
“Pumpkin, beetroot, sweet potato
all make beautiful gnocchi,” he
says. Even better, guests get to eat
what they’ve made at the end of
the evening. mrgnocchi.com.au.
