Hoghton Tower farmer’s market | June 13, 2006

The next "Merchant of Hoghton" farmers market is coming up on June 18th. This one should finally see some of the new season's veg make its way onto the stands. I've been making the most of their winter/early spring offerings for the last few months, but as excellent as the purple sprouting broccoli, swiss chard and swedes are, I'm dying for strawberries, tomatoes and lettuces.

With an incredible selection of local fruit and veg, dairy, meat, baked goods, fish, plants and gourmet imports, this is definitely the best and biggest farmer's market in the area, and worth making a trip from as far away as Manchester or Liverpool. It's located at Hoghton Tower, between Chorley and Preston, not far from the motorway. Get there early, though! We aim to be there by 10 when it opens. Wait half an hour and the main barn is as stuffed as a tin of fancy Italian sardines.
