Markets are a great way to source locally produced foods at value for money prices right on your doorstep. You can often talk to the producer of the food and find out the best ways to prepare and cook your purchase. Plus, as you're buying locally, you can walk or cycle, saving your car and helping out the local environment.
Market licenses for traders are administered by district councils.
See district/borough council websites for more information about local markets:
