Down on the farm

Just been down to the Farmers Market at Marple Hall School. The butcher at the front entrance had more or less sold out of meat, but I got a load of sausages and steak. The ruddy cheeked farmer from Shropshire sold me a bag of veg for a few pennies short of £3. Inside, it was absolutely packed. The man with the biggest smile in the room was Nick Lindley from Deli Select, who was doing a bustling trade in cheese and expensive nibbles. There are Greek nibbles, Thai bites and a table full of fudge.

In truth, there's not that much of a farm theme at all. It doesn't matter, because it's a nice trip out and the produce is of good value. The next one is on the 3rd Sunday in May. I hope it's better weather and they can have it outdoors.
