Will the pie man please return to Broadway Market immediately!

by Robert Moffat January. 10, 2009 2543 views

Saturday.
A walk to the market - it is bitterly cold, only two-thirds of the stalls are there. My vegetable stall is there - but his lettuces have frozen its so cold!! The coffee stall is there (thank goodness). But there is no pie stall (disgraceful - just the thing for cold weather - and no tomato stall (though other stalls have tomatoes so not a disaster).

I buy potatoes, courgettes, mange-tout, mushrooms, spring onions and corriander. Then Toulouse sausages, black pudding and bacon, then granola, then brie (from favourite French cheese stall) and then Cheshire (from favourite English cheese stall), and currant and walnut bread. And then I queue for ages for a pork and stilton burger (delicious) and then another queue for a second coffee. And then home - cold but happy!

But I really missed the pie man!

Interestingly that even on a freezing cold day some people look glamorous - and are able to sit outside as if it was spring!

Dreadful picture - but wow! what tights!

And some great shoes - I expect she had come for pies too!

Naughty PIe man should be back quick! Does he do pies without cream?I had a pie last night at Cornish Piestries, the one with the black front and the Pirate and I hardly slept of the night. I blame the pie. THough i am sure Pieman makes very digestible pies, unlike this tasty but lifeless, death assuring chain.

Great post, thanks! Loved the first one, she's dressed warmly but beautifully. Would have been disappointed with no pie also! Ugly pink shoes, but funny post!

Your market is outside? We have nothing edible at ours at the moment... I like the first shot!
