The best place to find excellent food is at a farmer’s market. This is where growers, bakers and all kinds of food and drink makers sell their produce direct to you.
And the good news is the NEW Newark Farmer’s Market is coming to the market place on the first Saturday of each month.
Visit the avenues outside the Town Hall between 9.30am and 3.30pm for the best seasonal produce that the region has to offer.
Products on offer will include locally sourced meats, sausages and bacons, award winning pastries and pies, renowned cheeses from Cropwell Bishop Creamery and Lincolnshire Poacher, delicious brownies and confectionary, international food and specialist coffees.
Everyone is welcome on this free to enter 5k timed run.
There is a friendly atmosphere and loads of support so join us at your local parkrun Saturdays at 9am.
