Farmers Markets

The recent growth of farmers markets has seen a welcome addition to the

choice of British consumers, often stocking top-class products the supermarkets feel unworthwhile.

In the words of The Farmers Market Association sums up the principles -"It is generally accepted by most farmers markets that stall holders must have grown, bred, caught, pickled, brewed or baked the goods themselves. Their main emphasis is to help local producers and processors to sell their goods directly to the public, near their source of origin.

The selection of goods available will vary with the season and location. However, you are likely to find a delicious selection of vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, bread and cakes, jams. Fruit juices and dairy products.
