grassroots soupfest a super success

It was wonderful to be out and about at the Upwey Grassroots Community Market this weekend.

As the market was in the midst of winter, organisers decided to have a soupy theme.

Upwey Traders were invited to submit their soup for judging in Soupfest. Competition was fierce with six traders submitting their best soup.

I had the very great pleasure of awarding the Golden Ladel to the award winning soup which was taken out by Cafe Grounded and their Thai Pumpkin soup.

Leanne, proprietor of Cafe Grounded, was chuffed to be awarded the Golden Ladel, busily working away in her cafe, we decided to take the award to her.

Peoples choice award was taken out by Gherkin Relish Catering with their entry, Wont You Take me to Smokey Town.

It was a terrific day out, the weather was kind and the locals came out in droves.

Next market will be a twilight market on Saturday 10 September, from 4pm to 8pm.
