Magpie Markets

We love markets in the Blue Mountains! Last weekend I was at Lawson’s Magpie Markets. What a great vibe and a beautiful range of fresh produce, plants, pantry yummies, vintage items and handmade clothing.

I made a list of my favourite markets in the Blue Mountains. There are many more! If you think there is another one I should try send me a message: http://contact@peregrineblue.com

Garden Art

I often see Peter selling his creations from his front yard. Such clever designs and all recycled. I love the little havens he makes for local insects and birds. I bought a bench from him a few years ago. It is very sturdy and it looks great on my verandah. He also makes cute planter boxes. He’s at 147 Hawkesbury Road, Winmalee. If you are ever passing by check out his work and have a chat. I love community and creativity!
