Questioning the importance of farmers’ markets yields a passionate public response.
Farmers’ markets are often seen as a way of promoting sustainable living and locally sourced goods – but what do people really think?
The answer, it would appear, is that the majority of people hold them to great value.
Following a previous week’s article on Castle Quarter Market’s possible closure, the question of how important these farmers’ markets are to the local community was put to a variety of people.
Many think of the markets as an essential pillar in supporting not only local produce and the local economy, but also the local community as a whole. They are seen as a source of decent, fresh food, as well as an essential platform from which sellers can reach a wider audience.
