Don't miss the Big Sheep Christmas Farmers' Markets!

Free range turkeys, organic meats, cheeses, cakes, puddings, biscuits, fudge, and chocolate - all these and much more will be on show at the  the South West’s biggest indoor farmers’ market at the BIG Sheep this Christmas.

I'll be there with my barrow ready to help you plan your Christmas menus.

Come and see me on the following Saturdays in December - the 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd. I'll be offering free tastings and a range of delights for your family meals this Christmas, including sizzling hot scallops and some superb local fish and seafoods.

So why not take a break from the bustle of high street and join in the pre-Christmas fun at this fantastic traditional farmers' market? See you there!

Looking forward to our lunch at Rick Stein's

I'm looking forward to our return visit to Rick Stein's Padstow Seafood Restaurant on Sunday 26th November.

Fifty-three members of my Fish Lovers Lunch Club will be joining me for this pre-Christmas treat, and we are all guranteed a marvellous day of great food and friendly chat.

If you'd like to join us, contact me now on 07970 932 566.

Come and see me in Tavistock

Tavistock Farmers' Market started 17 years ago, and has been growing in influence ever since. It offers customers a wealth of fresh local food and drink. Devon traders gather in the stalls around the market building offering superb produce. The atmosphere is bustling and friendly, and I'm delighted to be taking on a stall on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays in the month.

I'm really looking forward to casting my net further and meeting new customers, and proud to be showcasing the very best in West Country fish and seafoods to West Devon.

The busy build up to Christmas has already started, so make sure you come along and experience the delights of this excellent market.

I'll be offering succulent  lobsters, crabs and scallops, as well as a wonderful range of delicious North Devon seafoods and irresistible fishy Xmas treats.

I look forward to seeing you there. Happy Fishmas!!

Barnstaple's Big Food Day out another huge success!

I'd like to wish a massive and heartfelt thank you to all of my customers and all the Devon traders who turned out in atrocious weather for the North Devon Food Festival last weekend. Everyone helped to make the event another huge success.

This fantastic festival has been going strong for eleven years now, and each year it has got better and better. This year's event, in spite of the appalling wind and rain, proved to be another gastronomic treat, showcasing the very best local food businesses from across North Devon. You did us proud!

The fish fight back goes on!
