As the seasons start to turn the summer labour begins to truly show, buying seasonal foods from a local market is a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint. October is, of course, famous for its iconic pumpkin mascot with their grinning Halloween faces, but don’t let them steal all of the limelight. Many kinds of squashes can be found throughout this season and with a huge variety of colours, shapes, sizes and flavours so don’t buy one and then ignore the rest. 

But if squashes really aren’t for you then there is still plenty of reason to visit this weekend, the mushroom season is upon us as well as plenty of apples and fruits from the orchards. Whilst your shopping don’t forget to check out our plentiful craft stalls for Halloween gifts and decorations, all handmade and local.
