Our frequently asked questions :
 
Do farmers' markets really make a difference?
Yes, many of the producers you will meet on a farmers' market make their living from the markets, doing one almost every day. The success of these markets and the willingness of the public to support them provides a living not just for one farmer but often as not for a whole family.

I’d like to shop at my local farmers' market but when I go there I’m baffled by all the different types of meat and vegetables
That’s understandable. Compared to supermarkets a farmers' market can present a huge array of unusual looking produce. This is part of the delight of shopping at a farmers' market. You can find rare breed meat, old-fashioned vegetables and fruit but most importantly you can get specialist advice from the person behind the stall about how to enjoy the produce you are buying.
