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 often an excellent stall selling apples, pears and apple juice from Elwell Fruit Farm; plus another offering Organic Rainbow Trout from Deverill Trout Farm; and one from The Dorset Blue Soup Company with their Dorset Blue Vinny cheese, 'Woodbridge' chutney and their excellent range of seasonal soups.
