Since I’ve been doing the farmers’ markets in my hometown of Birmingham, I have been privileged to have met many wonderful people who care about what they sell, grow their own produce, know where their ingredients are from, cook with love and look after each other.

Just got back from another lovely Kings Norton Farmer’s Market. They have had a 23 month run of markets with no rain! It hailed a teeny tiny bit, but we’re not counting that. The record still stands for me – it’s the driest sunniest Farmer’s market I do!
Well, I’m recovering from a highly successful and busy weekend of fun, farmer’s markets and vegans! Saturday saw Cuffufle Preserves and Trishul Chocolate at West Midlands Vegan Festival in Wolverhampton http://www.veganmidlands.org.uk/festival/home.html
Shamefully we were so busy that no pictures were taken! If I had have taken photos, I do not have the photography skills as yet to capture the loveliness of the festival and the great atmosphere that I felt privileged to be part of.
