Oakwood Farmers Market 3rd Birthday 3

This picture is another from the Oakwood Farmers Market and is from a stall there selling preserves. The photo shows jars of Greengage Jam, Quince Jelly and Champagne Rhubarb from the local people at Perfectly Preserved who make chutney, jam, ketchup and relish.

I have always liked those varieties of fruit now rather less common than they once were, like greengages and rhubarb and even quince. Whilst I had heard of quince I was not even sure what it looked like, so looked it up, quince belongs to same family of fruit as apples and pears and looks a bit like a pear.

The Oakwood farmers market is held on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Oakwood Clock in Oakwood, North Leeds.

Like the thought of Quince Jelly. Do they sell a runcible spoon with which to eat it?

Very classy marketing- I’d part with my money for the Champagne rhubarb jam – sound delish!

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
