As always, you’ll find farm to market produce and a vast range of other local, seasonal, artisan and craft producers at the market. Seasonal vegetables, speciality meats, free-range eggs and other artisanal produce that includes cheeses, breads, cakes, chutneys, jams, charcuterie and confectionery will be lined up along the lane of the Dark Walk. You’ll also find a colourful selection of locally grown herbaceous perennial plants and locally made artisan crafts. We even have Twisted Fish healthy treats for the family dog, if they’re on their best behaviour of course! (Yes, it is a dog friendly market – we just ask that they are on leads).
Getting the most out of a trip to the market couldn’t be easier:
Ø Keep an eye out for the parking signage if you’re driving
Ø Bring a shopping bag to carry your goodies
Ø Above all get chatting to the producers for foodie tips
As well as serving suggestions, there is nothing more satisfying as meeting the maker of your food. Let the producers tell you their story and other inside scoops on what’s particularly good this month at the market.
It’s hungry work talking to producers and other foodies, so you’re covered with a range of street food options that include Barn and Bread, FoodPath Streetfood, Crepe’s 2 Go, The Hatch, Streetza Pizza and The Oyster Catcher. Each serve locally sourced food to enjoy next to Hillsborough Fort with a speciality coffee in hand and local musicians providing the soundtrack.
