Everything you buy at our Farmers markets is sourced within 100 miles, most of it is from within 50 miles. If it's not something that can be grown in the UK then we source the best Fair Trade version. You can do your weekly shop and support local farmers and independent producers.
Food stalls serve you scrummy breakfast or lunch. Eat at the enormous communal tables, or just enjoy the Sunday papers provided. There are pencils and paper for the little (or big!) artists. The petting zoo, face painting, and seasonal activities keep everyone entertained.
Why shop Farmers?
Because all the
produce at the market has been grown, reared or produced by the people who are
selling it. You can find out everything you want to know about the food here by
asking the producers directly. When you buy direct, the
money you spend goes to the people who actually do the work to produce the food
you’re eating, rather than to supermarkets and wholesalers – you’re helping
small family farms to survive.
Small and medium sized farms in the UK are
disappearing fast: between 1993 and 2002 over 100,000 farmers and farm workers
left farming. While the average age of British farmers is 59, Britain’s high
land prices mean it’s getting more and more difficult for young people to get
into farming. All the farmers here come from small farms, and some are younger
farmers trying to get started. So by shopping at the market you’re helping to
ensure that small farmers and producers in the UK have a future.
