At our farmers markets there is more space to shop outside in the fresh air. If you want to avoid the busy times visit in the last hour and avoid any queues.
Outdoors is safer but this is not a reason for complacency, COVID 19 is impacting every business and we have reviewed what we can do to open safely. At every farmers market we have the following measures in place to help keep everyone safe:
We encourage all our customers and stallholders to wear a mask at our markets.
The legal position however, as far as we understand, is that masks are not mandatory.
The Cabinet Office issued the following clarification to the trade association NABMA earlier this week:
“The new measures will extend the requirement to wear a face covering to staff where it already exists for customers in retail environments. This would therefore apply to all indoor market settings (where it currently applies to customers) but not outdoor market settings (where it currently does not).”
We love our winter vegetables. Steamed, buttered sprout tops, braised red cabbage, celeriac mash, roast Jerusalem Artichokes, you're only limited by your imagination!
We receive a lot of questions about packaging and plastic usage at our markets. It is an imporant issue that requires action from everyone. Read more to see what is being done.
The mornings are dark and cold. Brassicas and root vegetables come into their own!
