Meat, poultry and game

Print PDF


As a traditional market town in the North of England, you'd expect meat to be a strong feature of Hexham Farmers' Market. After all, most of the farming in our part of Northumberland, Cumbria and the west of County Durham involves sheep and cattle.  And Hexham farmers' market doesn't disappoint: you will find a great range of meat producers at every market, throughout the year. Heather grown lamb, traditional Galloway beef, rare-breed pork are all available and even mutton appears occasionally.

Every market:

Askerton Castle Estate- traditional Galloway beef, lamb and pork, eggs and occasional duck  (certified organic)

Middlemay Lamb - Clum Forest/Shropshire cross lamb and mutton, ready to cook dishes

Ravensworth Grange - Middlewhite pork, lamb and occasional Aberdeen Angus beef

Bywell Fish and Game - Excellent range of smoked products: venison, trout, pancetta and even garlic!

Northumberland Poultry - Range of chickens, duck and quail, both as whole birds and cuts (certified organic, accreditation for Hexham farmers' Market pending)

Hallsford Farm - Shorthorn beef, Llanwenog lamb and Saddleback pork

Northumberland rapeseed oil available at Hexham this weekend

Rapeseed oil from Yellowfields Oil near Morpeth in Northumberland will be available again at Hexham Farmers' Market this Saturday, 9 November 2013.

Market Manager Peter Samsom has arranged for a small supply to be at the market. Peter said:

"Unfortunately Helen Potts is still not able to come back to the market herself, but we're keen to make sure our customers are able to buy this excellent local product. Rapeseed oil is a very healthy alternative to olive oil and provides a little bit of summer on a November day.  Our market rules require the person who sells the product to be involved in the production process, but on this occasion I will be selling the oil on Helen's behalf."

As well as Yellowfields Oil, Brian Hunter of the Northumbria Soup Company will be bringing back his very popular soup, which is an excellent winter warmer and as it is British Sausage Week, you might want to look out for the excellent locally produced sausages from Ravensworth Farm, Askerton Castle Estate or Hallsford Farm, all of which reare their own pigs.

Hexham Farmers' Market runs between 9am and 1.30pm.
