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 excellent cows' milk cheese made by Mrs Temple, with milk from her herd at New Farm, Wells-next-the-Sea; plus another selling seasonal wild venison from Blue Bell Woods Wild Venison; and another from Perowne Great Snoring Quail, selling chicken, duck and quails eggs; plus pickled quails eggs and seasonal goose eggs.
- Open: Held on the 3rd Saturday of each month; 9.00-13.00
