The Art of Vegetables.

South Melbourne Market is definitely the Castle's market of choice for the weekly restock of the larder.  One of the quality stalls is Georgie's Harvest at #50, for the connoisseur of the vegetable, with a dazzling array of rarefied potatoes, garlics, mushrooms et el. Owner Georgie recently commissioned skilful still life master Christopher Beaumont to immortalise her finest wares and now does not only have this brilliant painting on canvas, but has, with Chris's help transferred the image to become signage to herald her stall.

To celebrate this union of art and retail there was a soiree held with wonderful food and beverages supplied by the brilliant Evening Star restaurant and music by Sam Lemann and Co.

Artist, Christopher Beaumont.

A wonderful celebration of quality food and quality art. 
 Why can't shopping be this stylish all of the time?
