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's usually a stall selling excellent single-variety apple juices from K.G. Consultants of Compton Dando, as well as their cider and vinegars - plus another selling 'proper' yoghurt from Hurdlebrook. You'll also find stall from the excellent Kimber Farm Shop, who offer naturally-reared lamb from The Naked Farmer (q.v.)
