Returning to the Hub after a weevil hunt turned out to be a hoax, the team came across a bustling farmers’ market.
Stalls displaying fresh fruit and veg vied with those selling fancy cheeses, handmade chocolates or preserves. One section was devoted to meat of all kinds, from beef to buffalo, chicken to ostrich. Sausages and burgers sizzled on barbecues, filling the air with mouth-watering aromas that made their stomachs growl.
Approaching a stall, Owen bought burgers, handing them out.
Gwen took hers dubiously.
“What is it?”
“I can’t eat Rudolph!”
