‘..a farmers’ market every weekend, in every shopping area in London’, is the proposal of a new report being launched by former Deputy Mayor of London, Jenny Jones. The report ‘Farmers’ Markets – building bridges between farmers and London shoppers’, finds that there is surging demand for farmers markets amongst Londoners. Farmers’ markets are the urban shop windows to the countryside.
