Our latest project, The Market Year, has just launched. Each month, throughout the year, a free booklet will be published featuring a profile of a local producer and the food they supply. We’ll also give you tips on what’s available in season and offer carefully chosen recipes using locally produced food.
On the first Friday of each month there will be cooking demonstrations & tastings – your chance to talk about our wonderful Sussex produce & discover new ways to enjoy eating seasonally & locally.
