Love Local – One


Love Local

My other half and I love a food festival, farmers market or anything that involves supporting a local business in their endeavour to offer good quality, local grown/produced items.

In this series, titled Love Local, I’ll be showcasing some of my favourites from local markets or festivals. If you have a local product and would like to get involved, please get in touch –

This showcase highlights some of the yummy bits I picked up at West Malling’s farmers market at the weekend –

Toulouse Sausages from Villagers Fine Sausages

This is a delicious French inspired recipe. Full of garlic and parsley and seasoned with a little sea salt. This recipe is delicious. I’ve enjoyed these sausages on a number of occasions. I’m not sure my raw photo do these sausages justice, so maybe image them browned off sitting on a bed or creamy mash. Yum!

The Chilli and Herb Farm Red Chilli Jam

If you have some crackers, some good quality cheese and you have a decent dob of this chilli jam, you can’t really go wrong. This is very tasty chilli jam and if you fancy spicing up your roast dinner, pop a teaspoon or two in your gravy and it will really zing up your Sunday special.


Dudda’s Tun Light Sparkling Blackcurrant Cider

You may recall I mention this beauty at the Brogdale Cider Festival, but it’s too good not to mention again. It’s cider, but only more fantastic. It’s got a gentle sparkle to it too. Whoever said cider was a summer drink is so very wrong.

So what’s your favourite locally grown or produced item?

  1. I love visiting local farmers markets although in Australia they have only just become more popular. Thanks for a great link up – this is my first time visiting your blog and #LifeLoving Linkie. Have a lovely day!

      Hi Sue. Thanks for joining in the link up. I’m looking forward to reading what you’ve linked.

      I’m glad the farmers markets are becoming more popular in Australia. They are really popular here – very busy. I love having a browse through all the lovely bits and pieces you can find there.

  2. We have lots of local produce. I’m from Greece so of course we have olive oil in the winter, and honey all year long. And we also have all of the specialty drinks like ouzo and a variety of wines. It’s great to get things that are locally produced. And don’t let me get started on the fruits and vegetables…

      How lovely. Where abouts in Greece? I’ve just returned from Corfu and it was amazing. It was such a beautiful island. Don’t even get me started on the food there. I are a bucket of delicious Corfiot olives every day. I’m still getting the cravings now.

  3. Yum, these all look so wonderful!! We don’t have anything like that going on here at the moment, but it would be nice if we did!

      We are very lucky Cheryl. We have farmers’ markets all the time here. Especially in the lead up to Christmas.
