There’ll be over 60 stalls selling a range of produce this weekend at Moseley Farmers’ Market.

From fruit and vegetables to cheeses and wine or pies and beer, there’ll be food for everyone’s tastebuds. All food available is locally produced, reared or grown by stall holders.

“This Farmers’ Market is unlike any other in the Midlands as shown by the thousands that come from even 40-50 miles away. It is an event that many in South Birmingham have discovered is worth a visit. We’re now shortlisted for the best in the UK again, up against the likes of Farmers’ Markets such as Edinburgh”

– David Isgrove, Organiser of Moseley Farmers’ Market
