Christmas in Tasmania part 1

 Elgaar Farm stand selling milk and yoghurt in glass bottles and jars, and cheese in paper bags.  They also have a bottle buy back offer.

We spent 6 nights in Hobart over Christmas, our longest family holiday so far!  We've been having trouble loading photos, so here's the first installment, our trip to the Farm Gate farmer's market in Hobart.  Crowds of people were buying all their fresh produce for Christmas, the queues for raspberries and cherries were ridiculous!  We bought amazing apricots, milk, yoghurt and cheese, apple cider, carrots, lettuce and honey.  We later bought cherries and apples off the side of the road in Huonville.  We also had lunch in Cygnet at the Red Velvet Lounge, and saw Gourmet Farmer's (Matthew Evans) partner and mum in the main street.  It was a bit of a Gardening Australia/Gourmet Farmer inspired holiday really.
