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 an excellent stall, selling organic eggs, vegetables and organic meat, including Aberdeen Angus Beef and Saddleback Pork from Swillington Organic Farm - plus rare-breed meat from Three Little Pigs (q.v.).
There is free, off street, parking nearby.
- Open: Held on the Ist & 3rd Sunday mornings of each month
