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, fruit juices and dairy products.
There is generally a stall selling goat products - including cheese, sausages and meat - from Muriel Brown from Capri Lodge; breads from The Great Northumberland Bread Company, meat from Ravensworth Grange Farm; plus another offering excellent bacon, chorizo, sausages and pork from rare-breed Piperfield Pork
