I found these lovely jars of honey and walnuts on the Larinka Apiary stall at Guildford farmers market. Ideal Christmas presents.

Walnuts are high in omega-3 fatty acid, rich in fibre, vitamin B folate, magnesium, copper and antioxidants such as Vitamin E. Of all nuts, walnuts have the highest antioxidant activity. Nuts in general are high in plant sterols. And of course walnuts are also good to eat.

Guildford has a regular farmers market on the first Tuesday of the month.

Local Flavours

I picked up this excellent book from a stall at the farmers market in Guildford (first Tuesday of the month). It is a guide to local producers, farmers markets, food festivals, food trails in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. It also includes recipes using local, seasonal produce.

Local Flavours is published by Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Milton Keynes, and Oxfordshire Food Groups, copies can be obtained by e-mailing info@local-food.net.

Local Flavours is an example other areas and regions should follow to promote local produce, foods and producers. Lincolnshire and Hampshire please take note!
