All of the producers were local and excited to be there.  We used buffalo from The Buffalo Farm who were serving up BBQ a few stalls down, ran to Phantassie‘s stall when we ran out of mixed leaves and rocket, and bought goat’s cheese from Arran Cheese.

Our menu celebrated the best of early summer:

Breakfast – toast or porridge with jam we made from Craigies Farm’s strawberries and rhubarb
Fresh Frittata- broccoli and smoked Barwhey cheddar or chicken, bacon and mushroom
Buffalo Chilli – bacon, black beans & bread roll
Soup – carrot and courgette
Roasted Beetroot Salad – rocket & goats cheese

And this week, the market happens to fall on the 4th of July! For our American friends, this means Independence Day and American-themed food for everyone.

Breakfast – porridge with homemade jam and buttermilk pancakes with honey
Frittata – broccoli and cheddar or bacon, leek and kale
American Corndog – deep fried, cornflake crusted sausage on a stick
Bacon Spiked Potato Salad – with Ronan’s homemade tangy mayo
Hot Smoked Mackerel Salad – red onions, mixed leaves and sauce vierge
