flour to the people

I've been in Melbourne for almost a week now, and Sundays Flour Market has certainly been up there as one of the highlights. The local winter bake sale is still in early days, with seasonal events and the odd special event i.e. Valentines Day and Christmas etc. and it's pretty obvious that the punters that rolled in early to the bake-sale were hardcore fans. The Birdman's (the boyfriend...) sister was amongst them and I soon joined in. The delicious smells wafting down the streets of Fitzroy was enough to get a 6am party-goer out of bed for a 9am roll-call...

There were a ton of bakers who came to the party (see below), but my standouts (according to my tastebuds) included the incredible Morning Bun from the Tivoli Road Bakery, the Fritz Fruit Loaf from GF Precinct and the delicious looking and tasting raw & vegan treats by Citizen Cacao. If my waistline was a little more accommodating, I would of definitely had a dabble in the doughnuts from Cobb Lane and the pink number from The Moonbeam Kitchen...

With a borrowed camera, I snapped a few frames in between mouthfuls. If only this was on every Saturday... In Perth...
