Community market’s tasty treats

SHOPPERS can pick up a whole host of tasty treats at Ottery St Mary’s community market this weekend.

New food stalls selling certified organic beef and lamb, beautiful cupcakes made in Ottery, and homemade chocolate are proving to be very popular at the town’s monthly market. Residents and visitors can judge for themselves at the Institute in Yonder Street from 9.30am –12.30pm.

The stalls are a welcome addition to the thriving market, which already sells locally produced, organic fruit and vegetables, free-range eggs and egg products, a huge selection of preserves and chutneys, apple juice and home-baked goods. All this food is produced within five miles of Ottery. There is also a Traidcraft stall, which sells those other essential staples, such as tea, coffee, rice and dried fruit, which cannot be grown locally.
