A Snapshot of Memory

On Saturday I visited St Jacob’s market with my cousin. It is a lengthy drive to visit the market but we love to do it for so many reasons: the market is huge; the prices are reasonable; the fruit and vegetables are freshly picked; and it gets us out of the city. Another reason is that there is a Dutch store in one of the buildings.

The both of us enjoy browsing in the store as it brings back pleasant childhood memories. One of the memories that play back in my mind is of my aunt (my cousin’s mom) preparing us a snack with toast and flavoured sprinkles. I used to devour freshly baked bread slathered with butter and topped with chocolate sprinkles. The best snack ever for a 10 year old!

During the past week, visiting the Dutch store at St Jacob’s market brought a smile to my face. It is always good to go down memory lane once in a while.

Have you tasted any of the Dutch sprinkles showcased in the photo?

  1. Hi c – I have never heard of the sprinkles but loved seeing the items – and toss t-shirts – lol – I like the one to the left cos
    My hubs is half Dutch and his grandmother used to wooden clogs and fun goodies on display –
    Anyhow – my favorite toast at ten years of age was butter and cinnamon and little bit of sugar smothered on toast…
    Thanks for sharing your smiles from the market
