Vale Harvest, Haddenham's monthly market, has been shortlisted as a finalist in this year's Berkshire & Buckinghamshire Life Food and Drink Awards.
The awards celebrate the very best of regional produce and hospitality across the two counties. Vale Harvest has been nominated by the public for Best Farmers' Market, alongside Beaconsfield and Maidenhead and the winner will be announced at the award ceremony on 19th November.
The Haddenham food market was set up over two years' ago to raise awareness of local food and drink businesses, and make it easier for local people to buy and sell local produce. There are around 20 regular stallholders; from free-range meat and organic salad/vegetables to home-made cakes, artisan ice cream and heritage breads, all from within a 15 mile radius of the village.
The market takes place every first weekend of the month and the next one is this Saturday, 7th November. Bonfire Night is the theme; there is a variety of stalls confirmed, as well as hot food and drink, live music, and a children's drawing competition.
The market runs from 9am to 1pm on Banks Park, next to Haddenham Village Hall.
