New from this Saturday – and now every week – great taste, great value veg grown on our doorstep!
We’re very excited that this Saturday Sam and Juliette, new farmers at Ashtrees Farm in Benson, will be joining us to start a weekly veg stall at our market. They grow without chemicals, looking after the soil, aiming for great taste, giving the customer nothing but the good stuff. And on a comparison of their prices with those of Sainsbury’s conventional (non-organic) veg most of their produce is the same or cheaper.
Bring your bags down to the market this weekend, come and meet Sam and Juliette, and let’s get this exciting new partnership off to a very happy, tasty start!
Also at the market this weekend:

Porch members are involved with every aspect of Porch Preserves (choosing the ingredients, cooking, designing the packaging, labelling and selling them) creating fantastic opportunities to gain invaluable skills and experienceOn the stall this weekend jam flavours will include Summer Delight, Gooseberry, Plum and Redcurrant, Rhubarb and Raspberry.
