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 Welsh Black beef, rare-breed lamb and rare-breed pork from Daren Farm; an excellent meat stall from G & R Tudge generally attends, offering dry-cure bacon, ham, plus fresh pork and free-range chickens - all produced by the family; plus a stall with organic vegetables from nearby Ty Mawr Organics.
