Look out!
There's a veg glut!

What do you do with courgettes that are marrows, runner beans running away, and super-size tomatoes?

On Saturday 16 August Wallingford chef Matthew Cockman will be cooking with Benson vegetable grower Mark Powell's produce at the Wallingford Local Producers' Market in the town's Regal Centre.

"It's been a brilliant growing season, so there's a bountiful harvest in allotments and gardens this summer, and we need help to manage this bumper crop," says Wendy Tobitt, chair of the Wallingford Local Producers' Market.

Matthew will be showing how to make nutritious and tasty dishes using Mark's vegetables from Ashtrees Farm, and talking to customers about how to make the most of their surplus harvest at home.

Wallingford Local Producers' Market opens at 10am and Matthew's cooking demos start at 11am.


The market was founded on the following principles:

  • To make available produce grown or produced within a 30 mile radius of Wallingford

  • To promote the benefits of locally produced food

  • To work with other organisations to help and support the local economy

"On a market stall people can try out their ideas and get their business booming without too much cost. It's great for our town centres too, bringing in fresh ideas and products, and preserving our nation's cultural heritage."
