Hi Guys,

well thought I'd make a new sticky thread lol I know all of us love to gloat about our fruit and veg bargains we find so now we have a place to regularly vent hehe.


Today I needed to stock up on veg so I went to the \\" country markets \\" at Lawnton to stock up. This is now my regular place the bargains are just unbelievable and can't be beaten on this side of town so here goes...

For $26.00 what do you get?

20kg carrots ( $7.99 )
3 beautiful big fresh womboks
2 green cucumbers
1kg tomatoes
1 big fresh silverbeet
2 bags of 3 capsicums
1 big pumpkin ( $1 )

Do you only feed your pigs one or two things em?

Jess mine wouldnt eat half that LOL
They wouldnt touch the pumpkin, cabbage and I dont think I would go through 20kg of carrots before they went off hehe

But $8 for that many is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will have to check it out!!!!!

We have enslaved animals and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.

lol yup it's the lawnton one. It's just along the main road Gympie Road on the left hand side it's not the first fruit and veg market but the second one it has a huge sign across it saying country markets hehe.

And the good thing is along the same strip is the aussie pet stores place and also a produce lol.

Holly if I go I will pm you and if you give me an idea of what you want, I can get yours as well?
I am just awaiting some overdue payments, which will probably be a check, which will take 3 days to clear....... then I am on my way.

That place is a bit too far for me to go to i'm afraid .. I'd love to go to the markets at Rocklea tomorrow but Craig doesn't finish until 1 and there is no way that I could go on my own in my condition with the 2 kids ... I'll have to check out the local vegie shops for now ...

Aw thanks Katt that would be lovely!!
Im so sick of woolies fruit&veg for my piggies, I love the barns/fresh produce stores soooo much better. A lot nicer quality and prices! LOL

You wouldnt believe tonight, all my piggies are being naughty and picky again LOL - I fed them nice fresh carrot, broccoli and brussel sprouts and the only one they will touch is carrots!! They really really dont like broccoli or brussel sprouts *sigh*
They preferred to eat their grain and fresh hay LOL
Oh well, I tried!!

yummm I like the photo on their advert!! hehe

Great bargain there!!! Your piggies will love all that!!

I wish mine would eat broccoli/cauliflower/sweet potato LOL

I cant give mine tomato much anymore either - I noticed they all start to develop a sore on the corner of their mouths Goes away once I stop feeding tomato. Must be the acidity. Darn! They really love it too!
