I was over to Gibside this morning to visit the farmers market run by the National Trust there. Its a really good event, on every month I think. It's a good thing to support these events, the produce is really tasty and fresh and we cut out the middle man, ie the supermarket, and get the profits direct to the producer. I snapped up some cold pressed rapeseed from Northumberland. Its a relatively new product but really good to cook with, like Olive Oil but more flexible. Being produced relatively locally is good too and if you come back you can get a refill at a knock down price!
