Chili peppers on sale in the market in Maidenhead in the UK about 3 weeks ago. It wasn’t quite cold enough that I was tempted to buy some and chew them raw, but if it was now I’d think about it. It’s freezing out!

A corner shop in the English Market has a simple but effective way of shutting up shop for the day. Put a broom stick across the entrance!
The English Market is completely roofed over and locked tight at night so I guess traders feel reasonably safe with minimal security precautions. That’s what’s wonderful about the market. It’s in the centre of Cork City yet it feels like an entirely different place, like a village market with stalls.
Definitely worth a visit if you’re a tourist in Cork.

The olive stall in the English Market, Cork is a well known part of this indoor market. There is always a queue of people waiting to bu some of their delicious produce.
If you like the olives you get in jars, try some fresh ones. You’ll be blown away by the flavour!

All sorts of produce is for sale in the organic shop in the English Market, Cork. Including these carrots.
A shark’s deadly grin greeted customers to the fishmongers in the English Market on the day this photo was taken.
Don’t you just love the expression on the fishmonger’s face?
PS. Claire took some great portraits on Saturday!
Fruit and other produce are still sold on Cornmarket Street although it’s more commonly known as the Coal Quay.
A group of boys discuss the day’s market in Midleton at the Food and Drink Fair there last September.
I’m off to the hospital again. I came home for a few hours sleep. Strong coffee day today methinks and no sign of baby just yet. Don’t even contemplate ringing me unless you’re family. The phone won’t be picked up.
Sowan’s Organic Bread Mixes were a big hit with everyone who sampled their bread, including Jacinta. She bought a packet of the stuff and I’m going to sample the finished product this morning! This is their stall at the Midleton Food & Drink Festival.
Their website is sowanorganic.ie and I discovered this positive post about them from a WordPress.com user, Keith. It always gives me a tingly feeling whenever I come across those because of my involvement with WordPress.com.
The September issue of the Digital Journalist is just out. This picture just screams at me – the contrast between the normal living room and the huge cloud of one of the collapsing Twin Tower is alarming.
