Guildford farmers market

After a chilly start, the afternoon was quite pleasant. A marked contrast to the wintry weather yesterday.

Reserved my bread and flapjacks at Celtic Baker to collect later.

Excellent dosa from the chutney stall. Far superior to the dosa I had at the South Bank Street Food Market yesterday.  Ollo Foods is an absolute must for Godalming Food Festival and Staycation Live.

At least one new stall. A man selling quality pork pies. That was all he was selling, pork pies.

The farmers market is turning into Alcoholics Alley. Too many stalls selling alcoholic drinks. One fruit and vegetable stall I never buy from, poor standard, rarely fresh produce, high prices. Today they had sunk to a new low. Bags of plastic wrapped apples, the apples rotten.

Does the market not exact any standards, as other markets do?

It is not acceptable anyone selling produce that is packaged in a way that is not compostable or recyclable. This should be a condition to be on the market.

When did Environmental Health last do a check on this market? Have they ever carried out checks? Or is there a conflict of interest at play?

Why is there no quality coffee stall on the market?

Two ladies were giving away cakes. Not sure why, but the cakes were excellent. They were from a group that discusses dying. I mentioned death cafes, and referred them to an article in Standart issue 7.  They were aware of death cafes.

It was then a coffee in Harris + Hoole. Tax dodging Caffè Nero has taken a stake. Does this mean H+H now serve the same low quality coffee? Fortunately not.
