As we write, the rain is coming down steadily, and we're hoping that our farmers are feeling the benefits.
As you know, the hot weather has been making it difficult for many of our farmers.
Some have been unable to plant crops or water them. Some have been forced to feed winter fodder to their animals which could affect prices this winter.
David and Jane of Barker Organics in Norfolk summed up the situation, saying;
'We can't plan anything, can't predict anything, anything can happen'.
Supporting your local farmers markets through wind, rain or sun is so important; thank you for understanding, everyone values your custom.
Love your farmers market?
Blackheath Farmers Market features in todays story on The Farmers Country Showdown.
We love our winter vegetables. Steamed, buttered sprout tops, braised red cabbage, celeriac mash, roast Jerusalem Artichokes, you're only limited by your imagination!
All of our farmers markets start back this weekend. Some farmers and producers are still away; your market may be a little smaller than usual.
It's Great British Game Week; say hello to our game dealers at our markets this weekend and try something new!
