On Sunday, with the sun shining and friends from Oxford visiting, we decided to visit our local Farmer’s Market at The Talbot, Knightwick.
The Teme Valley Market is one of the oldest farmers’ markets in the country and is very well attended. It is held on the second Sunday of each month throughout the year, starting at 11.00 am – 1.30 pm. However, it is best to arrive early as some produce sells out fast such as the delicious smelling bread. Although, you can always attend one of Damion Lorentzen’s bakery workshops to experience the art of making and, the enjoyment of tasting your own homemade bread and pastries!
Other treats at the Teme Valley Farmer’s Market are Ruby’s Kitchen who kindly makes the delicious biscuits which you’ll find in the guest rooms if you choose to stay with us at Huntlands Farm Bed and Breakfast. Ruby also makes fudge to die for, but beware as the choice of favours is quite extensive so you may find yourself tasting more than you anticipated on a Sunday morning! There is fabulous locally produced Lightwood cheese; scrummy scotch eggs from The Handmade Scotch Egg Company ; as well as Frome Valley Vineyard wines to name but a few. A list of regular stallholders can be found on the Teme Valley website.
To round off the morning and greet the afternoon with a happy tummy it would be rude not to indulge in one of the hard to resist and tantalisingly delicious smelling Parsons Nose sausage sizzler.
The next Teme Valley Farmer’s Market will be held on Sunday 12th December 2011 – last one of the year!
