15 May Today we are celebrating farmers, growers & artisans
The past 15 years have seen a proliferation of farmers’ markets, local produce and community markets spring up across the country. They provide an important space to celebrate regional distinctiveness, keep rural skills alive and offer communities gathering places that have been in decline with the loss of many of our rural post offices and public houses.
Today, during Love Your Local Market fortnight we want to celebrate these markets, often run by volunteers of which there are thousands, so it would be appropriate to say that today is about them too. Many of these folks are passionate about sustainability, traceability, providing fresh produce to local communities and supporting the countries farmers and we hope that you can show them your support by visiting your local market this weekend.
If you can’t get down to your local market this weekend and find difficult at other times, you may like the services of Market Delivered…one of our MarketBiz15….and here is what they do.
