Milford Farmers Market - Sunday 18th May

Farmers Markets are a great way for people to find local producers and cut down on the usually unseen environmental costs that globalisation brings.

Whenever there's a local farmers market on we go down to see what we can do to assist with "localisation". Afterall, if there is an oil crash and we all end up being unable to travel, we're not going to be able to get our flowers from Kenya and beef from Argentina, so it makes sense to rely on local producers.

Farmers Markets also boost the local economy and stimulate the sense of local community.

And saying all this we'll be down at our own local farmers market in Milford, Surrey on Sunday 18th May. We're helping out on a stall and rolling our sleeves up to get involved, so let's hope the weather and attendance are good.

Milford Farmers Markets are held at the Secretts Garden Centre and Farm Shop which is in Chapel Lane, Milford, Surrey GU8 5HU (We even put in a link to the map for you there). The market is open from 10:00am until 1:30pm so get there nice and early to get the best of what Surrey's local farmers have to offer.

Hey! Thanks for the great info, I love going to farmers markets. I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).

Hey Jordan, glad you liked the Farmers Market info. We intend to have a bigger list of farmers markets in the near future, so if you're in England, they'll be right up your street.

The carbon footprint issue is slightly off-topic here so I'll answer that in a separate post.
