Bunbury Farmers Market and Capel Vale WineryOn 24. February 2020 by Cookie
Leaving our sunny spot in Bubury, we started south, but first we needed to stock up in the famous Bunbury Farmers Market. As it turned out, that was easy!
The Farmers Market is not an open air market, but a kind of Supermarket-Market. It starts with a beautifully decorated range of fruit and vegetables and continues with delicatessen and speciality food. There are not many basics, and if you find them, they are probably in a special format or made from special ingredients.
Very shortly we thought about buying real swiss raclette chees and the very popular “Crèmeschnitten”, but we decided against that and bought lots of regional fruit and vegetables. And by regional, they mean 70-90% produced in WA, and that you don’t see much in the bigger stores.
Anyways, we had fun and enjoyed our shopping trip, and we filled our fridge to the brim.
Off we went, down south, but just a small distance, to Capel. He were there last year, and had bought some nice bottles of wine in the Capel Vale Winery. These were gone, so they needed to be replenished. The winery very idylically lies between a beautiful garden and the vinyards, and they seem to have a very good restaurant, too, although we did not try that. As it was before noon, and we still needed to drive a bit, we bought the same wines as last year (then, we did the tasting) and additionally bought two bottles of the new Brut.
We joined the “Friends of the Duck” mailing list and got 20% off our purchase, and in the end, not only our fridge was full, but also our “wine cellar”.
