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 rare breed beef, lamb and pork from Pomeroy Rare Breeds; one from Ark Chicken - offering a selection of poultry - plus another selling water buffalo cheese and meat from Blissful Buffalo of Tetcott.
- Open: Held on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month, 9.00-13.00
