Farmers markets

They say you should practise what you preach but sometimes it is a little difficult. I have been buying Fair Trade Coffee and Tea for some time now but that was about as far as my ‘ethical’ shopping went. Luckily I discovered the Farmer’s Market in Reading this morning so took a trip to see what was on offer.

Comparatively small compared to the famous London market’s, there was still a great range of local produce on offer. I snapped up some Ostrich Steak (anyone know how to cook it?), Olives, Sunflower Bread, DuckBurgers, Organic Salad, Gooseberries, Strawberries and Raspberries. Such a wicked idea – obviously you cant do your weekly shop there but for fresh stuff it’s ideal and only a little more expensive than tesco – but think about who’s picking up the main share of the profits. It’s every fortnight so well worth a trip down to the Cattle Market near the Station in Reading.

I will put up the glastonbury review soon, i’m trying hard to remember what happened.

One thought on “Farmers markets”

  1. There once was a boy called Andy,
    Who was ever so hand,
    He thought he could do
    Anything he would choose
    But he cant cos he’s tired
    From being randy.

    PSL Andy pls. update my shoddy website 😉 x
