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 - often including excellent goats' cheese from Cerney..
There is generally a stall from Adeys Farm Organic Meats - offering Aberdeen Angus and Hereford beef, Suffolk lamb and pork from Gloucester Old Spot's; plus one from Scrubditch Farm selling organic lamb, mutton and pork; another selling Lightwood Cheese's range of Worcester cheeses; and another selling excellent cheeses made at Birdwood Farmhouse, from their own milk.
