Vale Harvest — Local Food
Following the success of Homemade in Haddenham (held in the autumn of 2011 and again in 2012) and the encouragement of Haddenham in Transition, which aims to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and meet needs from local resources, a group got together in October 2011 to form Vale Harvest.
After holding successful food markets at Long Crendon and at Orchard View Farm, Little Meadle, the group has launched a monthly local food market in Banks Park, by Haddenham Village Hall, on the first Saturday of the month. The next one takes place on Saturday 2nd March 2013 from 9am to 1pm.
Vale Harvest is a group of local food producers within a 10 mile radius of Haddenham and the immediate area. They say "Our aim is to make it easier for local people to connect with local produce. The markets will host a range of stalls selling hot and cold food and drink to have there and to take home." Stalls selling some of the following will be there (rain or shine): free-range lamb and pork; cupcakes and ice cream; fresh bread and eggs; sausages and charcuterie; jam and chutney; fresh herbs and vegetables; cider and apple juice; hand-made chocolates; Oriental sauces and food; Chiltern rapeseed oil; Italian sauces and lasagne.
"If you're passionate about local food, we're looking for volunteers for our community stall — please contact Kirsty on 07920 521484 if you can help.
