Good Friday Market

The rain has brought out the bamboo shoots.  I’ve noticed them in my garden and here they are at Paddy’s market in Flemington.  I’m glad that mine are much smaller and more manageable.

The change of weather seems to have brought different kinds of fruit and vegetables to the market, as well as the ubiquitous apples, oranges and bananas.  Prices are high due to the public holiday; bananas that were 50 cents a kilogram two weeks ago are now $2.50/kg.  We are philosophical about the price rise: since we are regulars it evens out in the end.

    Enticing colors! How would you prepare the bamboo shoots, Mary . . . as in how would one include them in a meal.
