A visit to a Farmer Market is a delight as you know that you are browsing foodstuffs that can go from field to fork without ‘conglomerate’ food processes, packaging or transport interference. What you see is what you get and the produce could easily have been in the ground that very morning.
Farmers markets have been around for 100s of years and Borough market in Southwark claimes to date back to well before the industrial age, 1014ad (over 1000 years). Farmers sell their produce to the public and to each other and the ability to sell produce at retail prices gives farmers a well-deserved boost to their business.
There are loads of great farmers markets across the UK so we have compiled a short list of some of the ones we have found or been to.
