This Week, The Pig is mostly…
…doing what all good little piggies should do, and making the most of Bath’s markets. What with indulging in the long-established tradition of slow-shopping in Green Park Station (pictured) every Saturday morning to picking up a speedy supply of fresh fruit and vegetables at bargain prices from the stall on Kingsmead Square by way of thriving on the buzz of the Guildhall stalls, taking a casual meander around Milsom Place’s Saturday set-up and getting to know both the olive and jam/pickle traders on the SouthGate main drag, reasons for patronising the supermarkets are becoming less and less viable.
…making no qualms about my obsession with macaroons from super-foodie Jane Middleton’s Cinnamon Toast bakery – at long last, the new cupcake has arrived.
…eagerly anticipating tiptoeing off to the Bath Secret Supper Club on Thursday 4 April. But according to the rules of the BSSC, that’s as much as I can say it about it at this stage…
…trying to work out why BANES council are wholeheartedly supporting Bath BID plans for turning Kingsmead Square into an alfresco social epicentre when promises made along similar lines to independent ventures on the sorely overlooked Sawclose “plaza” years ago have yet to come to any kind of fruition.
…delighted to hear that the Bath Good Food Awards will once again go ahead this year, under brand new ownership. Heritage City foodies and businesses alike deserve, need and enjoy the kind of illustrious event that promotes our thriving doorstep larder; bring on the 2013 gongs!Categorised in: News
