Every third Saturday of the month Impington Village College hosts a food and craft market by Farmers Fayres. If you believe in great tasting food, and you like to know where your food comes from then a visit to the farmers market is a must.
Gathered together under one roof is a fantastic range of local artisan produce and goods including organic bread, meat, fruit and vegetables, honey, plants, pies, handmade crafts including baby items, fair trade gifts, jewellery, and much more.
You can travel the globe by taking a wander round the hall. As the scent of freshly ground coffee beans fills the air you can feast your eyes on Greek olives and oils, Italian meats and cheeses, Indian samosas and curry sauces, Mediterranean tartlets and exquisite French patisseries. Returning to home shores there is the smell of freshly bakes bread and scones, old fashioned cakes and a fine range of English cheese, marshmallows, chutneys, jams and fruit cordials. There is also a fantastic range of game, chicken, eggs, fresh and smoked fish, pork and beef products, award winning pies and pasties for your weekly menus.
The plant stalls have a range of vegetable and herb plants, hanging baskets, bedding, and perennials. There are also fresh cut flowers to bring the garden into your house. If you are looking for a special gift the craft stalls offer unique and beautiful hand knits, baby quilts, handcrafted pens, stained glass, skin care products, jewellery, cards for all occasions and fair trade gifts.
At the farmers markets you can sit for a while to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, whilst tasting the delicious hot waffles that are available from one of the cake stalls. There is also a specialist baker who produces homemade sweet and savoury treats that are free from wheat, gluten, dairy and refined white sugar.
Shopping at the farmers market offers you a chance to ask questions about the food you are eating, and how it’s made, to the producers themselves. It is a relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning, and by supporting the farmers market you are supporting local producers.
