Rye Farmers MarketStrand Quay, Rye, East Sussex, TN31 7AD
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 meat from free-range Sussex beef, the excellent 'salty-flavoured' Romney lamb, pork from Gloucester Old Spots and free-range chickens - all naturally-reared by Sunbeam Farm. Free-range turkeys are a bonus at Christmas, but these should be ordered. Botterell's of Rye sell fresh fish, plus crabs, lobsters and scallops
