Brightly decorated stalls laden with fresh fruit, vegetables and meats were once the hub of any community.
Farmers’ markets operated as the best way for those who worked the land to get their produce to the people. And while the rise of the supermarket almost saw them fade away, the past decade has seen a resurgence, giving shoppers hungry for quality a direct line to suppliers.
In an age where scrutiny is placed on what we eat and where it comes from, it is hardly surprising that crowds flock to such events, but with competition expanding there is no room for complacency. Organisers are always working to make the markets as fresh as the goods on the stalls, with quirky events to pull in shoppers.
