Farmers Markets Home
Farmers markets are the finest places to source your fresh fruit and vegetables, along with your meat, home baking and even arts and crafts in the United Kingdom. Farmers markets are governed by very strict rules and regulations that ensure that any food you purchase comes from farmers, growers, suppliers and producers all located within a small radius of the farmers markets themselves. This ensures that you can be certain you are eating only locally sourced, environmentally friendly foodstuffs that have a minimum carbon footprint; straight from the fields to your plate! Farmers markets are an excellent way to get to know your local merchants; not only will farmers themselves attend the markets but many smokers, butchers, bakers and various other trades will also attend so you can sample some of the finest tasting and highest quality foods available.
If you wish to be more aware of the origins of your foods then farmers markets are the perfect place for you to shop. You can provide the sellers with valued feedback about their produce and develop a rapport with local suppliers and providers of food, and if you are health concious then you will find farmers markets will quickly become must visit destinations on your weekly shop. If you have any queries or questions about the items you are purchasing you can ask the person who grew or reared the food personally, there are no middle-men or global corporations preventing you from finding out more about the food that you eat and feed to your friends and family.
You can also be certain that your food is healthy and fresh, and not full of artificial preservatives to keep it fresh on the shelves for longer. Many farmers who attend markets are fully certified as providers of organic produce; however even if the food you are purchasing is not organic you can rest assured that it is as wholesome and healthy as it can possibly be and best of all you will be supporting your local economy by purchasing from farmers markets. These markets are the healthy, fresh, vibrant and colourful shop front for local farmers and and providers across the United Kingdom.
