Moseley Farmers Market is an excellent residential market located in the Moseley area of Birmingham, 2 miles out of the city centre.
It was the winner of the Best UK Urban Farmers Market 2009, and the quality of the produce on offer is superb.
All produce which is advertised as "local" must be sourced from within 50 miles of the market, although there are products sold from further afield, including delectable Greek olives and fish that is sourced worldwide, in order to offer the most environmentally sustainable options to customers.
The market is over 10 years old, and hosts more than 50 stall holders who congregate once a month at this lively street market, offering produce in a variety of categories.
Fruit and Vegetables: Locally grown fruit and vegetables including organic mushrooms and delicious corn on the cob, as well as a range of freshly squeezed juices.
Meat and Fish: Ethically raised meat, including beef, lamb, pork, duck, offal, plus a range of speciality sausages, as well as cured and smoked products.
Drinks: Fruit wines and liqueurs sit alongside locally brewed beers and ciders, plus a wide range of unusual tea flavours and coffee bean varieties.
There is also plenty of "food on the go" available to keep energy levels up whilst scouring the market, from warming home made soups and comforting chocolate drinks to keep the winter chills at bay, to Caribbean inspired snacks and mouth watering barbecued meat - perfect for summer days.
The Moseley Arts Market, which takes place on the other side of the road, is also held on the same day, at the same time, perfectly complimenting the farmers market and providing additional shopping opportunities for locally produced goods.
Getting there: The market runs from 9am-3pm on the fourth Saturday of every month.
Town centre car parking is available nearby, and buses 1, 50 and 35 run past the market from Birmingham City Centre.
