CELEBRATE the best of English spring produce at the Farnham farmers’ market which takes place on Sunday (St George’s Day) in the Central car park from 10am to 1.30pm.
“Not only is April 23, St George’s Day, it’s also famously the anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and death so I hope shoppers will be inspired to head along to our farmers’ market to buy ingredients for classic British dishes such as tasty roast lamb followed by rhubarb crumble,” said Iain Lynch, Farnham town clerk.
“Vegetables such as leeks, purple sprouting broccoli and spinach are also still excellent at this time of year.
“We’re very pleased to welcome back Selsey Willows who will be bringing their beautiful fresh fish – do look out for them for an excellent healthy meal. They weren’t able to make our March market and I know many of our regular shoppers missed them.”
Visitors to Sunday’s farmers’ market will find a mouth-watering array of cakes, breads, cheeses, preserves, freshly picked fruit and vegetables plus high quality meat, fish and eggs.
Shoppers new to the market might be surprised at some of the less obvious treats on sale: ice cream, pasties and pies, wine, fruit juices, confectionary, curry sauces and chutneys. There are even stalls selling fresh flowers and plants.
Plus, expect a special appearance from Bergamia Tea, previously known as Tiger Spring Tea.
Ukulele band UKAN Hop will provide entertainment throughout and the tea tent will be run by the Abbeyfield Wey Valley Society, one of Surrey’s leading providers of sheltered, residential and nursing care.
