The Teignmouth Farmers’ Market is coming back by popular demand with fresh, local produce every last Saturday of the month in The Triangle from 10am until 2pm.
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. For example Shaldon Bakery will be bringing their famous Ugly Buns hot from the oven across the Shaldon bridge. Shute Fruit and Produce of Bishopsteignton will be picking fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables that morning, whilst Springfield Nursery will be bringing plants and heritage varieties of apples, plums and damsons from their orchards at Teigngrace.
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.
Supporting the local food and farming community couldn’t be easier, of more fun, than shopping at your local market. Whilst browsing through the stalls, market-goers can also look forward to live musical entertainment, as various acts will be performing during the course of the day in order to provide a little extra splash of colour to the proceedings.
Bring your basket, fill it with local goodies, and feed your soul as you fill your plate.
If you are a local farmer and would like a stall contact Lori Reich at Shute Fruit on 01626 777570 or
