The 1905 Restaurant in Kathmandu is host to a Farmer's Market every Saturday from 9am to noon.

These gentlemen are selling delicious local goat's cheese in two styles -- aged and fresh.   They were creamy and flavorful.

This is a laid back market with lots of booths selling everything from homemade pastries and cookies to Seabuckthorn juice concentrate.    (Seabuckthorn is a nutritious fruit that grows in the Mustang district of Nepal.   It is loaded with vitamin C and tastes delicious.   I bring home the concentrate and make seabuckthorn sorbet.)

This farmer's market is set in the beautiful gardens of the 1905 Restaurant.   Built in 1905 as a Rana Palace, there are lots of areas to sit and enjoy the fruits of the market and see old friends.

This booth features Feta cheese made in Pokhara from cow's milk.   It was great.   I hope to get the product into a few shops in Boudha so I can have my feta fix while here.   A new company, western run, they have been in business only 3 or 4 weeks.   Best of luck to them.   They are already supplying many local restaurants here in Kathmandu.

This is low season here in Kathmandu, so the lovely ponds filled with swans are drained for cleaning at the moment.
