A Local Success StoryIn Easter 2008 the Farmers' Market was launched in Station Square, Saltburn, and in the past three years it has grown to be a substantial success, with 3,789 people attending the market in May 2010*. Held on average 8 times a year, the Farmers' Market is organised by Food First, a social enterprise of over 20 locally based food producers and retailers. Saltburn Farmers' Market is a family-friendly enterprise aiming to promote the social, economic and environmental benefits of locally produced food.
How can I be sure it's local?Saltburn Farmers' Market conforms to the National Farmers' Retailer and Market Association (FARMA), whose standards state:
- Own Produce: All produce must either be grown, reared, caught, brewed, baked or processed by the stallholder.
- Locally Produced: from within a 50-mile radius. (Some producers may come from slightly further afield if their produce is difficult to find locally).
- Producer: The stall must be attended by the producer, or someone directly involved in the production process.
