HAMPSHIRE Farmers’ Markets are returning to Ringwood.
The first market will be held from 10am-2pm at The Furlong on Saturday, March 22.
Hampshire Farmers’ Markets’ business manager Alex Handford said: “All our producers are thrilled about returning to Ringwood and the prospect of holding a regular monthly market at The Furlong, which is much more central for shoppers than our previous location.
“We are looking forward to welcoming shoppers from a wide area of Hampshire and the New Forest to the market and working closely with the retailers and community.”
“It is four years since we held a market in Ringwood and in that time consumers have become more passionate about the provenance of the food they buy.
“After last year’s food scandals they want to know that the produce they are giving their families is fully traceable.
“Visitors to our markets also get to meet our producers and to sample their products, enjoy fresh food to go and the vibrant market atmosphere.”
