Get Fresh at Haddington Farmers’ Market on 27 February, 2016
The first spring blossoms might seem a long ways off, so do yourself a favour and add some freshness to your plate for that extra boost of Vitamin D to see you through the winter months. Natural foods high in vitamin D include fish oils, fatty fish, mushrooms, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks.
Plus this Saturday Haddington Farmers’ Market in addition to their great local produce has some fantastic new stalls and new produce. We are delighted to see the return of the famous Woods Brownies and ZeEspresso Coffee, plus we have two East Lothian crafters Rory Dyer and Emma Murray. We also welcome Solar Ripe a range of herbal teas, herbal oils (not for consumption) and herbal ointments.
The main reasons for local, seasonal produce tasting good are that it’s grown in optimum conditions and it’s fresher because it reaches you sooner after being harvested and the stallholders at HFM are the growers themselves so pass on great cooking tips.
As each year ends, a new season arrives, together with a supply of fresh ingredients that offer you comfort from the cold. From hardy root vegetables to bright, sweet citrus, winter produce delivers a surprising range of flavours for you to enjoy with family and friends.
