Farmers' market promotes local food

From the Oxford Mail:

"The Charlbury farmers market is the first in the county to sign up to a 'Just Ask' campaign promoting locally sourced food.

"The campaign, run by the Country Landowners' Association, aims to reduce imported meat, dairy, and other food products by urging customers to support home-grown.

"The Charlbury market, set up in 2001, is held every three months, and joint organiser Nick Potter says: 'The Just Ask campaign is perfect for the market.

"'We are only too pleased if people ask us questions about the products on our stalls, because the provenance of what we sell is what makes us distinctive compared with the supermarkets.'"

Just to let you all know that with your help we have managed to raise £9000 for the Corner House & Memorial Hall.

However: HELP is always needed. Some of the committee are standing down this year - we need new fresh ideas. So please, if you did enjoy the day, please contact Susie Finch (susanna_finch@hotmail.com) for offers of help. Thanks in advance!
