My Love of Farmers Markets

gut health and fermented foods


I really enjoy farmers markets, and living just outside of London I have tons on my doorstep. I try to eat as seasonally as possible, and shopping this way forces me to. It’s great to support small independent farms and suppliers and the goodies are always so much better quality than anything i’ll find in a supermarket. Look at what I picked up at the weekend…

All this for under Β£35!
Whole chicken
Slab of pork belly
Pack of bacon
8 chicken carcasses (which made 3l of stock)
Huge slab of Dorset salmon
4 apples
3 huge spears of rhubarb
3 leeks
Massive cauliflower
1kg carrots
2 bags of mixed leaf salad
6 small beetroots
6 tomatoes

That’s an impressive amount of organic/free range food don’t you think? What are your thoughts on farmers markets? I’d love to hear from you in the comments section!

  1. I love farmers’ markets, and eating fresh seasonal food, while supporting local, although do find that they are sometimes a bit pricey – you have got a great haul for your budget though! #AllAboutYou

  2. Great haul there! I love farmer’s markets, especially the cheese and bread stalls (being veggie I have to stride quickly past the meat but my boys love the fresh hot sausages they often sell!).

  3. It is great to be able to support local shops and producers. Well done to you guys. X

  4. We are so lucky to have this market every Sunday and another one every Saturday just a short train ride away. Between them, my Riverford veg box and new delivering butcher, money spent in supermarkets should become minimal xx

  5. You got so much stuff! Great value for money. We should definitely shop at local markets a lot more than we tend to. x Mel#SharewithMe

  6. I never shop at markets and I don’t actually know why but looking at what you got for your money I need to start shopping at them! #sharewithme

  7. Farmers markets are the best! WOW you really got a great overhaul of organic fresh food there! So jealous. I should go more often but since we moved I haven’t found the one in our area yet. Lazy I know. This has motivated me!!! πŸ˜‰ Thank you ever so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme

  8. That’s a lot of shopping! We used to live in New Zealand and wet to a farmers market for our big good shop every week. We only ate seasonal produce and it was always so tasty. I’m glad more are springing up here as supermarket produce has usually been chilled for a while and the difference in taste is remarkable. X

  9. YUM YUM, farmers markets are great and what a bargain!!! πŸ™‚ #ShareWithMe

  10. I’m so with you! I LOVE a good market. I get up every Sunday at 8 to go to our local market and come back with tonnes of fresh fruit and veggies. It’s awesome.
