Seasonal Produce

One of the great things about buying and eating local produce is getting to try different, seasonal produce. Here's a bit of a guide about what to buy and when.

As part of putting something back into the community, our market is sponsoring a rolling programme of donation of mini-orchards of fruit trees to local schools. If you would like your school to participate, please contact Peter at peter@kingsnortonfarmersmarket.co.uk
