To Market, to Market....The Best Jam Stall in Brissie

Below is Nan, dressed to impress, a few years ago now at The St Paul's Anglican Church Market Day. That year it was a Heritage theme. Each Year Nan is the convener of "The Jam Stall". A role Nan takes very seriously and this year she has been rounding up her crew of Jam, Pickle, Marmalade and Chutney cooks and busily sourcing fruit from anyone with a lemon, orange or any fruit for that matter, tree in their backyards.

MIRIAM, NORMA, JOHN, NANCY and SANDRA

And here are her faithful mates at the craft stall, no pun intended ha. This band of ladies and gents work so hard to raise funds and the Market Day at St. Paul's with it's old fashioned fun and stalls and new fangled trendy coffee van has become a "must do" on the Wynnum / Manly calender.
So for those of you who are partial to baked goods,hand made crafts, white elephant and book stands, not to mention looking at amazing floral displays and getting lucky with a raffle or two mark this day on your Calender, Saturday the 30 th July.
St Paul's is in Ernest St Manly right next to the Manly State School. Be sure to look out for Nan on the Jam Stall and try some of her speciality, Chilli Jam.

    That's pretty much what I live for! We just did our annual visit to the country church fair in my in laws' town. There we buy all our jams, chutneys etc, dried herbs and garlic for the whole year, all provided/made by locals and their gardens.
