I came across this excellent website http://loveyourlocalmarket.org.uk when researching fresh food markets in Nottingham, England. Yes the Wandering Palate is going to be in Sherwood Forest – Glamping on a farmstay in Caunton, should be fun!
We will stop in Nottingham for the day taking in all the history and architecture, as well as visiting the Victoria Centre Market which I believe has been revamped although I can’t seem to find much detail on the web about the suppliers. One blog, back in 2010, points to the whole market being shut down, but I assume that was for the renovations to take place. My suspicions as the market may have gone downhill.
It’s difficult to know where the best shopping/produce is when it’s your first time in a place, so any tips on Nottingham and the region welcome.
I did come across what seems like an excellent butcher in Sherwood, J.T. Beedham’s butcher’s where Hungarian proprietor, Johnny Pusztai, has become a bit of a local hero as far as butchers go.
Having trouble finding a good artisan baker though… any suggestions?
