Buying produce direct from a producer enables you to ask questions about the food you are buying or sample new products that may not be available in large supermarkets.
Supporting your local farmers market not only improves the local economy, farmers get a fairer share of profits as there is no middleman, and less food miles travelled means a reduction in fuel consumption, so our environment stays cleaner too.
Extra markets will be held under our gazebos in the pedestrianised areas in town on the fourth Saturday in the month.
