MARKET IN EMSWORTH SATURDAY 20TH APRIL
Farmers' Markets celebrates Great British Beef Week 21st-27th
Greater awareness of where food comes from and how it is
processed has encouraged an increasing number of
shoppers to look more locally for their produce,
especially their meat.With the Great British Beef Week starting on the
21st April until 27th April, the
Hampshire Farmers' Markets have a few tasty beef recipes
for shoppers to make from the beef they buy from local
producers at their markets throughout Hampshire.
Recent food scandals have also encouraged shoppers back
into their kitchens to make meals from scratch and
Hampshire Farmers' Market Chairman Toby Bowtell said:
"Many shoppers to our markets are saying they have
chucked out the supermarket ready meals because they
want to know where their food is coming from and that it
is genuine locally produced and be assured of what they
are serving to their families."
Business Manager Alex Handford commented on the many benefits of
buying direct from the producers at the markets and said:"Our meat producers supply meat that is fully traceable
from stock that has been cared for with the highest levels of
animal husbandry and welfare, ensuring the best quality and
taste.We have also
conducted extensive price comparison surveys over recent months
and a large number of our items are cheaper than the
supermarkets, with the savings in middleman passed onto
customers, as well as our special offers making our high quality
produce really affordable."
Hampshire Farmers' Markets is a not-for-profit community
interest organisation that creates environmental and local
economic benefits including reduced food miles and helping to
maintain local rural jobs.Regular markets are held every two weeks in Winchester,
monthly in Alton,
Elvetham Heath, Emsworth, Petersfield, Romsey and Southsea, with
seasonal food markets at Cosham during the spring, summer and
