Headington Farmers Market

The sunshine scooped me out of bed this morning in time for the Headington Farmers Market, a meer half an hours walk from where I live in Oxford. It's situated on Kennett Road and takes place on the final Friday of each month between 8.30am and midday. It's only a small market consisting of about ten stalls but the atmosphere was great and the quality of the produce seemed fantastic and not all that expensive. A friend and I treated ourselves to fresh bacon rolls (£2.70) from one of the butchers who was also selling a variety of pork meat and game. There was also a large bakery stall selling bread and cakes from which I bought a small loaf of locally milled wholemeal bread (95p) and a yummy Belgian bun (80p). I bought a pound of home grown tomatoes for just 80p and an onion squash for 70p. There was also a flower stand selling lots of flowers in pretty autumnal shades, one selling organic mushrooms, another butchers stall selling beef and a cider and apple juice stall. Well worth a visit if you're in the Oxfordshire area!
