Farmers Markets should be a market with a range of local farmers selling their home grown produce. The idea is that you can reconnect with where your food comes from ask questions about how the food you buy has been produced. Hopefully you can find local fresh seasonal vegetables, seasonal or traditionally stored fruit, free range eggs, cheese, milk, butter cream, yoghurt, ice cream and sometimes even raw milk. Also meet meat producers with sustainably reared meat that is part of a mixed farming system where the animals are helping regenerate the soil. You may find real bread, sourdough, pies, ready meals, soup, or even locally blended spices, curry, crafts or plants. Perhaps herb or veg plants that you can take home and start growing food to trade with your neighbours or join Crop for the Shop.
If your local Farmers Market is not on our map please email their details to [email protected] and we will add you to our monthly prize draw.
