Farmers' Markets

Food shopping at Farmers' Markets is one of the best ways to limit your impact on the world. By buying direct from the producers you are immediately reducing food miles and supporting local suppliers. It helps to increase understanding of the seasons and what is available at different times of the year. You can then use this understanding to help make better decisions when you are forced to shop at a supermarket. Farmers' Markets help you make the most of the amazing produce England has to offer. Buying your meat and veg from the producers is such an easy and pleasurable thing to fit into a busy week.
