Sophie Grigson

Sophie Grigson

Sophie lives just outside Oxford and she's passionate about local food. "Buying local and seasonal produce is much better value in terms of freshness and intensity of flavour. At Thames Valley Farmers' Markets it's easy to buy what you need, make proper meals and cut down on waste. Choose great bargains such as the full of flavour cuts of meat which make delicious comfort food."

 

You know it makes sense!

We all want to do our bit to cut down 'food miles'. Most of the food and drink sold at Thames Valley Farmers' Markets is produced within a 30 mile radius of the market.

 

And we want to cut down waste too. You can help us by bringing your re-usable bags and containers when you come shopping.

 

Thames Valley Farmers' Market Co-operative assesses all producers before they're accredited to trade at our markets. This means you can be sure you're buying food and drink from the people who've grown, reared, baked and made it, all to the highest standards. All our markets are FARMA certified.
