I am not sure that is possible to showcase the whole of Teesdale in one delicious dish but if it can be done Andrew Rowbotham’s Barney Banger is probably it. I cannot wait to try them and taste what all the excitement is about.
If I needed to encapsulate Barney Farmers’ Market into a sausage I would almost certainly end up in all sorts of trouble, there are just too many delicious ingredients to choose from. To be honest there is already such a wide variety of sausages on the market most tastes are already catered for. We have super old fashioned bumper pork sausages from Christine at Burnhopeside Hall or award winning sausages from Mainsgill Farm Shop. If you are looking for something different why not tempt the family with a succulent Veal sausage from Tricia at Winter Tarn and cook them in some of her 3 Star Gold award winning butter. David at Heartwood Poultry must have the most unusual sausage; his Chicken sausage is simply mouth-watering and nearly always sold out by lunchtime. There are also game sausages and all manner of cured sausages and salamis and much more besides.
We will be welcoming Taste Italiano to this is our first outside market of the year. They will be bringing their fresh pasta, a first for the market along with their other beautiful products.
We are all praying for a calm day between 9.30 and 3 pm to enable you all to linger among our 29 fabulous stalls and sample a little of what we have to offer before you stagger home loaded with bags full of health and happiness. www.barnardcastlefarmersmarket.co.uk
