Increasingly more people are concerned about where their food comes from, the quality of it and to ensure that the people who work hard to produce the food that goes on their plate are rewarded for their efforts.
This is why people are being urged to support events such as the Aldeburgh Farmer’s Market at Snape Maltings.
There are a lot of things to think about when shopping over Christmas and often it can cause a lot of stress. As well as the gifts for friends and family the big concern is often the food. But in the rush to get everyone fed it is easy to overlook what you are buying. Yes you may get a cheaper price in a supermarket but what about the quality of what you are buying?
This is why events like the Aldeburgh Farmer’s Market at Snape Maltings are essential. It is not only the chance to purchase some fresh produce but also the chance to meet the people who make it possible and learn where that food comes from. Furthermore you can be reassured that what you are buying goes to the people who are producing the goods rather than middle men and big corporations.
Also there is something distinctly more relaxing about walking around stalls and trying out new foods rather than chasing around supermarkets grabbing what you can. In a strange way it can often help to do this and take a break from the hustle and bustle for a bit!
Furthermore Christmas is often a great opportunity to try something a bit special, to add a bit of style that transforms the average roast dinner into Christmas dinner! In the case of the farmer’s market there are a range of producers making artisan goods. It is often worth taking a punt on something a bit different (you may even find a new favourite to add to your culinary range!)
The event takes place on Saturday 6th December at Snape Maltings from 9.30am- 1pm. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to support local farmers and to add something extra special to your plate this Christmas!
