Saturday marks the start of Fairtrade Fortnight and where better to stock up on fair trade and local food and non-food items than at the farmers’ market. And why not buy your Pancake Day ingredients as well. It’s a packed market with a fantastic mix of fresh food, plus a wide range of takeaways and our vegan café. Non-food stalls this week are de-cluttering advice from Clear Space for Me, clothing repairs and commissions from Make Do Mend, fair trade scarves and shawls from Bodmash, and second hand books from Jason’s Books.
