These days, people are more and more concerned about where their food is from.
'Food Miles' concerns lead some to baulk at the carbon emissions resulting from lamb shipped from New Zealand or Argentinian beef. Other people may have concerns about GM produce, or prefer their grub to be grown green and organically.
So what better way to buy food than to pay a visit to your local farmers market, where you can meet with the producers face to face as you browse the stalls?
The first Saturday of every month (starting in November) sees a new indoor farmers market at Risby village Valle near Bury St Edmonds. Featuring the usual meat, veg, dairy, eggs and preserves there will also be craft stalls amongst the fresh produce.
Running between 9.00am and 1.00pm on the first Saturday of every month, Risby Village Farmers Market will also offer refreshments. Free entry to all and a large convenient car park nearby make these the ideal alternative to a trip to the supermarket.
Visit the market's thebestof Newmarket events page for more information.
Alternatively, if you would rather stay more central, there is another farmers market on the same day at The Memorial Hall, Newmarket.
