It’s easier than ever to eat local

March 1st, 2012

Do you like to eat locally produced, healthy, tasty food? A new season of food markets begins this weekend at Cogges Manor Farm. Starting on Sunday 4th March, the food markets will take place on the first and third Sunday of every month and run from 10am to 3pm.

Jams and marmalades made by Well Preserved

The great thing about food markets is that you can buy direct from the people who make the produce, whether that’s meat from Foxbury Farm, jams from Well Preserved or freshly baked bread from The College Loaf.

Although the farm itself isn’t yet open to visitors (that’s happening on March 31st), the on-site cafe will be open to anyone wanting to enjoy refreshments while browsing. Entrance to the food markets is free.
