A £39,375 grant from ‘Local Food’, a programme supported by the Big Lottery, which provides funding for projects working to make local food more accessible and affordable to communities saw the first of several planned food presentations and road-shows at Barnard Castle Farmers Market in October.
Themed as the ‘Big Apple Day’ stall holders put together amouth-watering luxury hamper consisting of, apple juice, sausages, crumbles, fudge, granola, pies and pickles to name a just a few. Visitors were invited to search for as many products on the market containing apples. It was a closely run competition with James Goldberg from Barnard Castle coming out on top with the most number of apple goodies. Thank you to everyone who took part and who visited the market, making it one of the busiest farmers’ markets of the year.
