Earlier today I went to Grandborough Farmers Market with Squisito Deli. I met a couple of farmers who have saved a rare breed of lamb and a man who was inspired by his daughter’s recipe for fudge to set up his own business.
Talking to producers its evident that farmers markets are an important source of revenue for them and they relish the opportunity to talk to customers.
