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 the excellent fruit juices from Benson"s of Sherborne - these should be tried, as they're excellent; one from Flour Power City selling their excellent organic bread, and pastries; plus another offering trout - both brown and rainbow - from Broolleas Fish Farm.
