As we arrive in April, farmers across the UK are gearing up for the start of the growing season. Spring has arrived, bringing with it warmer temperatures and longer days, perfect conditions for planting a wide variety of crops.
However, the start of this year’s growing season has been met with some challenges, with many areas experiencing unusually heavy rainfall. This has made it difficult for producers to get onto their fields and start planting, resulting in some delays and potential shortages in certain crops.
Here in Hampshire, our producers are working tirelessly to ensure that they can still provide you with the freshest and highest quality local produce, despite the difficult conditions. Many are using techniques such as raised beds and greenhouses to protect their crops from the wet weather, while others are adapting their planting schedules to make the most of the dry spells.
As customers of our farmers market, you can still look forward to a wide selection of fresh, seasonal, and local produce in the coming months. Our producers are committed to providing you with the best possible selection of fruits and vegetables, all grown right here in Hampshire.
So why not make the most of this challenging growing season by showing your support for our local farmers? By purchasing their produce, you are not only helping to sustain their livelihoods but also helping to build a stronger and more resilient local food system.
