The market on 11 September is shaping up to be one of our biggests of the year yet. It will see the very welcome return of Lee from Stonehouse Smokery and Julie from Pure Plants, together with two producers trying the market for the first time.
Belle & Herbs are based in Tyneside and make fermented vegetables in jars for veg grown on the Rising Sun Farm. They include things like sourkraut in white and red versions, kimchi and unusual food like fermented mooli. Professor Tim Spector, who researches our microbiome (or gut flora) suggests that we should all eat fermented foods at some point in the week and the products made by Belle & Herbs are a welcome addition to market staples like sourdough bread and yoghurt.
Helen from Knitted up North in Ryton will be bring a range of her hand-knit items for the first time too.
We will be having music from Simon Probyn, a sax player with a jazzy repertoire and with it being the weekend of the Heritage Open Days, Transition Tynedale will be launching their Edible Hexham Trail on Saturday. You’ll be able to find out more at their stall at the market too.
