The only Farmers’ Market to win 3 times “best in UK”
The 2016 winner of the FARMA Farmers’ Market of the Year was awarded to Moseley Farmers’ Market which takes place on the village green in Moseley, Birmingham. The judge said: “The quality, freshness, variety and value of the produce are obvious to anyone attending the market. On the stalls presentation is excellent and the sellers frequently advise on the preparation and cooking of what they offer. They have every right to be proud of what they offer.”
David Isgrove, founder of Moseley Farmers Market said ‘I am very proud that the hard work of our volunteers, the enthusiasm of our amazing traders and the support of the Moseley and wider Birmingham community has helped us to win this coveted award for the third time, the only Farmers Market in the UK to have achieved this. For a Farmers Market to be considered so strongly for the Retail Champion award is a huge endorsement of the value that Moseley Farmers Market has brought to the local economy’.
The Retail Champion judging panel highlighted the exceptional work of Moseley Farmers’ Market, which narrowly missed out on the UK Farm Retail Champion award this year. The judging panel loved the passion for farmers’ markets shown throughout the market, the quality of stalls and the way it acts as a true ambassador for farmers’ markets.
