LAST weekend Hoylake Community Centre held its 6th local food fair.
There were over 35 producers showing their wares, fresh vegetables, bread, home reared meat, cakes, preserves cheeses and locally brewed beers and ciders. There was also cookery demonstrations from Julian’s Restaurant.
There really was something for everyone.
As well as this event let’s not forget the West Kirby Farmers Market held on the 4th Saturday of every month 9am to 1pm at St Andrews Church Hall Graham Road West Kirby, with all genuine local producers offering quality food. More information can be found at www.westkirbyfarmersmarket.co.uk
Local healthy produce is clearly in demand, and particularly so after the horse meat scandal. People want to know what they are eating and where it has come from. Food has to be safe and healthy, that goes without saying, and what you're buying has to be exactly what's on the label.
If ever there was a time to begin buying British and Local then it is now. Not only would that help support local business, the butcher, baker and grocer it would support out local towns and villages and our local farmers, producers and traders.
Let’s start our buy local campaign today.
To that end I have arranged for a meeting to take place at Melrose Hall in Hoylake for local butchers, bakers etc to come along so that we can have a co-ordinated approach to make sure the message is loud and clear.
