Wynyard Farmers Market

Today I’ve got another farmers market post for you all because lately I just can’t get enough of them. Homemade produce made with the fair hands of local people trying to make a living or simply enjoying a hobby is the best kind of food in my opinion. Late last month me and my mam visited Wynyard for their monthly artisan food market; the sun was shining and there was a good variety of stalls to browse and buy from. The market takes place on the third Sunday of each month, located by the beautiful Wynyard gardens. 

Urban Fudge Wynyard Farmers Market

Although shopping locally can be more expensive than popping to your nearest supermarket, you can rest assured that you are getting high quality products that are made with love whilst supporting your local economy. I love shopping locally; the atmosphere at farmers markets in particular is really friendly and welcoming which is not something you get from a bustling supermarket.

‘When you buy from a small business, you’re not helping a CEO buy their 3rd holiday home. You’re helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his first football top and helping mams and dads put food on the table.’

Here’s a little bit more about my favourite stalls from the day:

Urban Fudge 

Now I’m not at all a fudge fan and wouldn’t usually consider buying any as I’d rather save room for cake but Urban Fudge were giving away a few tasters of some of their homemade fudge creations and oh my – they were heavenly! I tasted the salted caramel and had to buy a block; it was the butteriest, tastiest fudge I’ve ever tried and it had the perfect texture. The blocks are charged at £2.50 each or you can get four for £7.50. Along with the salted caramel block, I also picked up a chocolate orange block which also tasted incredible (definitely on par with the famous Terry’s chocolate!).

Brown & Blond

Brownies are one of my favourite desserts so coming home with a brownie after visiting a food market is highly likely. Offering modern twists on the classic chocolate brownie, Brown & Blond serve a scrumptious range of flavours to send your taste buds into overdrive. When it comes to brownies, there’s nothing I love more than sampling a classic, from there if I like it, I’ll make my way through the rest of the flavours. The servings were a good size and the texture was heavenly – super squidgy with a crisp topping.

If you’re a fiend for farmer’s markets like I am, you might want to visit Orange Pip Market and Stewart Park farmers’ market.

    Stewart’s Park farmers market is one of my absolute faves! If you ever see the crumble & slice stall, you should DEFINITELY try one of their brownies. I know that they cover a whole bunch of markets, so they might’ve actually been at Wynyard. Also, The Moody Baker from your first photo is great. His chorizo loaf is amazing and he’s so friendly.
    Great post, our little NE markets have so much to offer!

      Oh yeah, Crumble and Slice do a delicious brownie! I tried the rocky road one last time when I saw them at the Orange Pip Market 🙂 Ooo the chorizo loaf sounds amazing! My mam bought a plain loaf from him which was really fresh, I have such a weakness for bread haha. Thanks for commenting 🙂 xx

    You can’t beat staying local. And love your quote of why you should. 🙂
    Our town and a town 20minutes away has monthly food markets, which I do try to pop along too. It’s great to see what’s on offer and try something new. 🙂
    That Butterscotch and Fudge Brownie sounds yum! :p
