One way of supporting our local industry and environment at the same time is to buy from local farmers’ markets, we increasingly see how farmers make little profit when selling through large chain supermarkets, and this is one way of ensuring they are rewarded for their work. We are lucky in the Stour valley that we have several great farmers’ markets to visit.

Offers a wide range of organic and GM-free products are available, all of which are produced or grown within 30 miles of Wye. Hot food and refreshments are available and there is live entertainment.
