Teignmouth Farmers’ Market
is launching on 30 August 2014 in the heart of the charming town centre, the Triangle, between 10am and 2pm. This is set to become a regular event, and will be held on the last Saturday of every month. True to its title, farmers and producers will be bringing their own fresh grown, baked, raised, caught, brewed, smoked or processed produce for your delight and delectation. Most of the stallholders come from within thirty miles of Teignmouth, although many are much closer than that - Shute Fruit and Produce
will be supporting the market and offering seasonal fruit and vegetables picked fresh from their farm in Bishopsteignton.
But the farmers want to support the local community too. For this reason they will make one stall available, on a rotational basis, to selected community groups to communicate their purpose, drum up support for their cause, and maybe make a few bob at the same time. To learn how your community group could benefit, contact the organiser of the market, Lori Reich for more information (Tel 01626 777570).
Supporting the local food and farming community couldn’t be easier, of more fun, than shopping at your local market. Bring your basket, fill it with local goodies, and feed your soul as you fill your plate.
If you're a food producer, restaurant, farm shop or deli - attend one of our seminars in September to ensure you are complying with the new food labelling regulations that come into force this December!
We have organised seminars with nutritional food regulation advisors selectfood, and with the support of NatWest we can offer seminars to members and non-members of Taste of the West in Bristol, Taunton, Exeter and Truro.
