A birthday treat….

Where else to visit for a birthday treat with my family, but the largest producers and farmers market in the westcountry, the Totnes Good Food Sunday. Their motto is “Talk Food, Taste Food, Buy Food” all three of those sound good to me!

I was also looking forward to meeting some of the wonderful producers I’ve had the pleasure of tweeting with and, the one place they all seem to head to is Totnes once a month.

I was most impressed with John Rowswells fruit and veg stall, he’s a real character, and it was great to meet someone so passionate about unusual varieties of vegetables.

His story is a fascinating one http://www.pmrowswell.blogspot.com/ and his tasty looking veg found their way into my shopping bag, including, scorzonera, Barrington Banana shallots, and a huge Romanesco, which i’ll be cooking with shortly.

There were so many mouth watering treats here from Devon and beyond,  Meats and Game, wonderful flavoured salts from Alec at Devon smokehouse, artisan breads and cheeses, Charcuterie from Capreolus and some tasty looking smoked morcilla and chorizos from Spain.

Needless to say I left happy with an overflowing bag of goodies.

The market runs once a month in Totnes’  market square.  http://www.totnesgoodfood.co.uk/

  1. I love Farmers Markets! You are so lucky to have such a great one close to you! My wife has a lot of her family base in Devon & Somerset so I enjoy the passion for quality produce that you guys have when I’m over. In my part of Ireland we have some farmers markets but mainly people sell from their homes which I think is great too.
    On my next visit, Totnes market is on my list to check out.

    • We are very lucky with our markets here, but I also like the thought of people selling from their homes too.
