One Day One World Project: 09:00 – 10:00

the food market

A food and drink festival is held in Ludlow twice a year. In spring and autumn. In addition a regular outdoor market is held every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; a local produce market twice a month on a Thursday and sometimes there is a craft market on a Sunday. I have posted some of the window displays for the festivals, now let’s take a look at some of the stalls:



I quite like a “Mojito” cocktail. Preferably in a glass.

Sausages, Sausage Rolls and Pies


Even those delightful heart-shaped boards can be bought from the market.


Plenty of eggs to go around.

Jams and Preserves


and with so many jams and chutneys you are spoiled for choice.

…so many other delights


So drink up…

buy British…


and your local market!

Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day. If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world.   This week is between 09:00 – 10:00.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Yay! We both went to the market today!!! So much food 🙂

    I’m thinking cheese with a fresh baguette and some of that jam/chutney. It would go so well with the Squash soup I have on the stove right now.

    Damn, I’m hungry.

    1. Mmmm.. sounds delish! What do you put in your squash soup then? I adore butternut squash and have a couple of recipes – one based on chilli, the other with coconut milk, both very tasty. It’s the one thing I do like about the colder months – home-made soup and stews!

      1. Me too! I start nesting 🙂

        This is a new recipe I’m trying for the first time. It’s like a very hearty stew with ham and split-peas. I think it’s going to be really good.
        Normally I just make a pureed squash and apple soup. Or stuffed squash … and yes, squash chili. Yum.

  2. I’ll trial that Mojito cheese for you, if you like, Jude? 🙂 It’s just about wine time and I’m sure I’ve got some nice crackers. Come on over!

    Sydney planning all falling into place? Bet you’re getting excited. I am and I’m not even going! It’ll be lovely to meet Meg, too. 🙂

    1. Wine open here Jo, a lovely New Zealand Sav blanc – can’t wait to get there and try some more! I’m still working on being able to meet up with Meg, hope I can do so, she is an amazing woman.

  3. Your photos belong in a magazine Jude, I love the special effects on some of them. I’ve never heard of mojito cocktail cheese I have to say, nor spag bol cookies! Did you try them? This looks like a food festival extraordinaire 🙂

    1. Perhaps I should be more adventurous with the cheeses, but I’ll leave the spag bol cookies to the dogs! What I really want to know is what are Grampy’s F and Peas???

  4. I wouldn’t mind a morning prowl around this market – although I’ll pass on marmite mice! I need to stock up on chutney though – and eggs are wonderfully photogenic. I love the surprise of your treated photos – in this case the olives.

    (I missed your second Autumn Leaves post – keeps telling me “page not found”)

    1. That’s odd – page not found error – as I haven’t renamed the post or anything. Can you see it now?

      The olive stall is one of my favourites 🙂 and I wanted to demonstrate the different greens.

  5. Markets are one of my favourite places to search out when ever I am in a new place Jude and this looks like a really good one. So many different and tempting products
