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.
