Christmas Spirit at Roath Market

This morning Roath Farmers' Market was bustling with Christmas spirit. A portable cabin was set up, selling with logs, trees, wreaths and mistletoe, and live Christmas music was blaring across the stalls.
If you missed out, Christmas trees will be available at both Roath and Riverside Farmers' Markets this weekend.


Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree...


The Holly and the Ivy...


I warmed myself up with a lovely cafe latte from the Caffeine Kid for £1.80 and a veggie Indian breakfast for only £3.75! Who said these markets were expensive? This meal was really filling and this trader uses local ingredients.

Yummy veggie breakfast, with potatoes, bhajis, curry and mint sauce
I had some work to do at the market this morning; asking the shoppers questions for a feature I am writing later this week. I must say walking up to strangers in farmers' markets is lovely because everyone is so friendly, however after buying some mistletoe to cheer up my flat, I did start getting strange looks off wives as I approached couples asking them if I could ask them a few questions. Ooops! Wrong idea!

A bit of festive cheer for £1.50
