Our seasonal recipes are designed to help you to make the very best of the seasonal produce you buy at our markets. Many of our shoppers at the markets are saying they have chucked out the supermarket ready meals because they want to know where their food is coming from and that is genuine locally produced and they can be assured of where it has come from. There are now so many TV food programmes that show us just how quick, easy and economical it is to cook delicious and nutritious meals from scratch!
