Where better to buy everything you need to take part in Farmhouse Breakfast Week (20 to 27 January) than Farnham Farmers’ Market on Sunday 24 January (10am to 1.30pm). The market takes place in Central Car Park and, reflecting the latest COVID advice, the organisers are asking shoppers to wear masks at the market.

“A hearty cooked breakfast or brunch is the perfect thing to look forward to on a chilly January. And with so many people working from home, it doesn’t even have to be a weekend-only treat. Shoppers will find succulent, top quality sausages and bacon at the market as well as freshly laid eggs, artisan bread and locally produced apple juice. You will also find our usual array of fresh seasonal and dairy produce plus ready-made goods such as condiments and drinks,” says Councillor Alan Earwaker, Farnham Town Council’s Lead Member for Tourism and Events. “If you prefer a lighter option for breakfast, look out for muesli, jams, honey and pastries.”

For the first time at the market, wearing masks will be obligatory, in addition to social distancing measures that farmers’ market regulars will be familiar. Councillor Earwaker says: “The market is enclosed so we have clear and easy-to-follow social distancing measures in place but, new for January, shoppers and stallholders will need to wear masks – just as we are all used to doing in shops. Shopping at the farmers’ market supports our local producers who work tirelessly all year to provide food for our plates. They look forward to welcoming you so please come along and support them.”

The market takes place on the fourth Sunday of the month. Full details and more information about stallholders is on Farnham Town Council’s website.
