Hampshire Farmers' Markets celebrates Great British Beef Week 21st-27th April

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."



HFM 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."

The 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, Andover, Elvetham Heath, Emsworth, Petersfield, Romsey and Southsea, with seasonal food markets at Cosham during the spring, summer and autumn.


In 2013 Hampshire Farmer's Markets will take place on:
Saturday 18th May

Saturday 15th June

Saturday 20th July

Saturday 17th August

Saturday 14th September

Saturday 19th October
