A morning trip to a farmers market at the weekend is worth doing and London is full of them throughout the year. These markets are a way for local farmers to share their fresh produce with the public and get a fair price for them.
If it’s your first time, there are a few things you should know:
Bring at least one shopping bag. You won’t regret it when you’re trying to stuff a basil plant into a handbag.
Make sure you have cash. Coins and small change are even better.
Prepare a list of things you might need or want. This ensures that you won’t go over budget or waste time aimlessly wandering around the veg stall.
