Local Produce

Field to folk

Buying local produce – be it from a major supermarket or a local farmers market – has an important part to play in keeping the landscape special and there are numerous places where you can buy fresh, local food and drink – farmers’ markets, farm shops, specialist retailers and even many supermarkets are now stocking a good range of locally produced food and drink.
