Yay for another bank holiday weekend, although we don't have anything planned!
Been to the Ampthill Farmer's Market this morning, and was nice to see a good range of stalls, I bought some Goats cheese, they were selling goats sausages too - but not being a sausage lover I left them. Got a good selection of veg, some seedling veg plants to put in over the weekend. Got a cornish pasty for lunch, and my joint of pork for dinner tomorrow, and some turkey mince for Owen. I even bought some Sorrel cordial off the Caribbean stall, tasted like mulled wine really - a bit different and worth the taste. And some nice young Rhubarb that I shall roast with brown sugar, and have with yoghurt. So had a good 'shop' on our little market - I really hope it stays. There was a lot more there - enormous American Style cheesecakes, honey, pottery, plants, flowers, indian sauces, pies, cakes and lots lots more.
Have you checked out River cottage web site - lots of foodie things to read about on there, he loves farmer's Markets and regularly attends:
Unfortunately, the market didn't get me many customers for my cards - but did sell 7 or 8, but still enjoyed being there. Maybe once it has moved (hopefully) and the parking is better it will go from strength to strength.
Must get busy, will report back later...
