I finally did it! I managed to schedule my diary correctly and turned up to West Malling Farmers’ Market today. It was a lovely sunny day and there were plenty of people in attendance – it was rare to see a stall-holder not having a queue of people to serve.
The stalls included butchers, sausage makers, cheesemongers, fishmongers, bakers, wood carvers, apple juice and cider makers and an Ecover merchant selling re-fills. Plenty of choice to get a range of produce and other goods that hadn’t travelled far to reach the market.
It was delightful to be able to stroll around and pick and choose some amazing foodstuffs – we picked up some bread and cakes, bacon and sausages to compliment our vegetables from the allotment.
On the way back we stopped at a well-stocked kitchen goods shop in West Malling to pick up a huge stock pot to make some hearty soup from our veg – roll on winter!
