Brecon Farmers’ Market not only sell the most wonderful food and drink but their local producers are never to shy away from a sartorial challenge. So in June the people of Brecon Farmers Market went into medieval mode for Agincourt 600 celebrations.
Habits were donned and hessian frocks were brought out of storage for a day of game pie and other suitable bellytimber.
Sadly this is unlikely to be repeated for another 100 years, although you never know – the usual ‘second Saturday of the month’ farmers market in Brecon is a more contemporary affair. Tapas is served, fresh savory muffins are baked and, dare I say, chilli infused oil is drizzled.
With a mandate stating that the participants must be local and actually produce their own produce, this month Brecon Farmers Market welcomed Jules James the award winning Crickhowell based chocolatier from Black Mountain Gold. His fine artisan chocolate apparently ‘gives beautiful memories that last a lifetime’. That’s a bold claim indeed, but having tasted his great product, it’s hard to deny.
