Stroud Farmers Market

I was visiting friends at the weekend in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire and couldn’t resist a trip to one of the best farmers markets in England at Stroud.

It was very good to see a vibrant farmers market full of fantastic produce and plenty of customers, some stalls were nearly sold out by 11am, nearly all the strawberries and green beans were gone.

We bought red and yellow cherry tomatoes, green beans, Single and Double Gloucester cheese from Godsells, Church Farm, Stonehouse and organic Cotswold Brie from Simon Weaver of Kirkham Farm, Upper Slaughter,  Sun dried tomatoes, scotch eggs, Gloucester old spot pork sausages (for the kids), apple juice, steawberries and a bottle of English wine.

The excellent scotch eggs were from The Handmade Scotch Egg Company which come in a fantastic array of flavours, we tried BlackWatch with rich black pudding and free range pork a Mac which is an original scotch egg (free range pork and seasoning), a Passion which is a bit different with free range pork, beetroot and red onion and lastly a Baz which is free range welsh white/landrace cross pork with fresh basil, sun dried tomatoes and black olives, they were mmm scrumptious…
