There is an exciting range of fresh food and local specialities available in our region for you to enjoy. Farmers markets are good for farmers, rural communities, market towns, the environment, your health and your taste buds.
What makes a genuine farmers market?
There are three golden rules that should apply to a genuine farmers’ market:
- Producers must be local, defined as within a specified radius of the market site (normally 30 miles)
- Producers must sell their own produce. All secondary produce should contain local ingredients where possible
- The person behind the stall must be the producer, a close family member or an employee directly involved with the production, allowing you to ask questions about how it was produced. Try it – they like to talk.
