The Thames Valley Farmers’ Market visited Abingdon Market Place today on the third Friday of the month.
The sun was shining and traders were having a good day.
Mr Busby, of Busby’s Bees, restocked his Abingdon Honey stand for me to take this picture. Busby Bee apiaries are on working allotments, and in a secluded woodland garden.
Buying at farmers’ markets helps support local farmers and producers. There are no middlemen involved. It also helps cut down food miles and waste. People generally bring reusable bags, and the traders transport their products in reusable crates.
