  • Marlborough Food Assembly

    The Marlborough Food Assembly puts local consumers in touch with local food. As a food assembly member, you can shop local produce online and go to the same venue every week to meet the producers and pick up your pre-ordered local produce. Producers from within 25 miles will be offering their produce online. Find local milk, eggs, cheese, organic vegetables, fish, ciders, cakes, honey, preserves and healthy home cooked meals. Shop at your convenience from home and then head to the Rugby Club, Marlborough every Thursday from 4.00pm to 6.00pm to pick it up. ‘Food Assemblies started in France and there are no more than 700 assemblies across Europe. If you’re interested in the quality of food and its provenance then the Food Assembly is for you. Community is at the heart of The Food Assembly connecting neighbours to farmers and neighbours to each other. We’re hoping the assemblies will be an event you look forward to’. Reducing waste is key as farmers and food makers know exactly how much to deliver in advance and food miles are decreased. You’re also supporting your local economy. In a world that needs us to act in a more sustainable way this is one of the first steps towards that. Sign-up at The Food Assembly to start shopping. ...»

  • Wiltshire Farmers Markets

    Wiltshire Farmers’ Markets Association run monthly markets across the county where local people can buy local food and drink direct from producers.  The Association has around 60 producer-members selling at the markets which vary in size and character.  Expect to find a good selection of seasonal vegetables, meats, cheeses, preserves, cakes and bread and, increasingly, cider and beers.  Also look out for: rapeseed oil and natural skin care with new products appearing all the time such as fish and locally produced charcuterie e.g. salamis, air dried ham and chorizo.  The aim is to give farmers, growers, foragers and makers a reliable outlet for their goods and, importantly, more control over the price in relation to the cost of production.  There are lots of benefits for the consumer too.  The markets have a great atmosphere and the producers are always ready to talk about what they do, to explain about production methods, where the products comes from and what makes them special.    Shopping at the farmers market can turn the chore of the weekly shopping trip into a pleasure. ...»
