And this little pig went to the market…

Undoubtedly one of the most vibrant markets in the North East, the Tynemouth market, did fill our measures today.

Situated in the lovely victorian Tynemouth metro station and with more than 150 stalls, I doubt there isn’t something to please everyone’s cravings, either for handcrafted stuff, antiques, books or … food…

And that’s exactly what my camera was craving for today… and yes, with a mindset for yummy but healthy we did resist ALMOST everything… And here is our list of temptations…

Greek pastries filled with cheese, spinach and other goodies…

Fruit salad in a melon case? A first…

Cupcakes, cupcakes and chocolate-covered marshmallows …

For (homemade) jam lovers…

One of our choices… Quorn meat-like pieces salad in a crispy cone (with a choice for real meat ones)

Verdict? The salad is delicious, the cone is a wrap fried in hot oil… a bit too oily (and unhealthy) for our taste but would eat it again!

Bread of quite enough (highly tempting) varieties…

Coconut macaroons (with orange?)

And finally (as you should be drooling by now), our other choice… lamb kofta wrap with couscous and cumin yogurt!

Verdict? Yes, lamb + couscous + cumin yogurt sounds delicious and health-ish. Put it inside a wrap and becomes slightly weird (couscous in a wrap?) but still promising. What was missing?. Seasoning. No cumin flavour… no salt… and then there was that odd sweetness of sultanas popping out from the couscous with nothing else to balance it…

The concept is there… give it flavour and it could be a hit!

Of course there was much more to taste and try, and even our pooches had something specially homemade for munching, and in different shapes and flavours!

And as this can’t be a never-ending post I leave you with the cutest little thing ever (only second to my Benny!) which went to the market too…
