This little ‘HOG’ went to market

I took a quick spin into the Adelaide Central Markets for a ‘foody hit’ today.

I didn’t get lost and I found free parking for motorcycles. Bonus.

I love markets, especially gourmet food markets. The hustle and bustle and the sensory over load with colours, smells and of course the tastes.

I love to ‘buy local’ and supporting local and regional growers, producers and the food makers. I prefer fresh and knowing where my food comes from.

The Adelaide Markets didn’t disappoint. it’s full of gourmet delights. I was glad I didn’t put the saddle bags on Fat Bob.

I met up with my son Guy and together we wandered around, picking up fresh fruits and vegetables along the way.

We decided on Middle Eastern for lunch and went in search of fresh pita, falafel, hummus and tabouli.

Loaded up we headed off back to my place for a yummy fresh lunch.

PS: I should point out I’m referring to Fat Bob as Hog (and not myself, in case your wondering). For my non motorcyclists friends, please find following an explanation of Harley HOG, I found on Wikipedia;

Beginning in 1920, a team of farm boys, including Ray Weishaar, who became known as the “hog boys,” consistently won races. The group had a live hog as their mascot. Following a win, they would put the hog on their Harley and take a victory lap .In 1983, the Motor Company formed a club for owners of its product taking advantage of the long-standing nickname by turning “hog” into the acronym HOG, for Harley Owners Group.

About Heather

I’m free spirited by nature with a gypsy soul. I’ve never really been content to stay in the one place. There’s just too much to see and do in what really is a short life (when you think about it in the big picture). My mission is to experience as much as I can. To live not just exist. Growing up I always said I was going to be an old lady riding around on a Harley Davidson with purple rinse in my hair. So far one out of three isn’t bad. I’m taking a break, loading up the Fat Bob, hitching up ‘the trailer’ for some nomadic adventures around Australia. I’ve given away and sold off most of my possessions (a very liberating experience). The rest has gone into storage. Find Out More »
