Market Day

For the first time in several weeks, we were able to go along to our local Farmers' Market.

Local is a relative term.

The market is a car journey away which kind of defeats the object of farmers bringing the produce to you. And, one has to admit that there are very few farms in London which means it's not really local farmers bringing produce to locals.

But, hey. It's fresh and most of the producers are within or just outside the M25. The produce is seasonal and hasn't been flown around the world, packed in airtight plastic or frozen.

So, I consider it "local". Of course, when we move to Devon we'll be growing much more of our own: much more local.
