Directory of Co-operatives
We are a producer owned co-operative who run the Certified Farmers Markets in Portishead and Clevedon. We pride ourselves on being certified and our belief is to have only quality products in the market which are produced only by the producers from their own holdings.
The exceptions are Country Markets who must source 25% of their baked goods from a local producer and our bread producer who sources all of his flour from our local mill who in turn buys only local grain. We have resisted having producers into the market who buy and re-sell as do other markets in the area and all of our producers come from within a 30 mile radius so we are truly local. We would rather have 10 local stalls of quality produce than 25 stalls travelling many miles and selling produce with which we cannot prove the provenance.
