Farmers' market offers plenty of tasty treats

Individuals keen to sample fresh and local produce while visiting the Isle of Wight in the coming months might like to head along to a new farmers' market that is being launched.

Set to take place fortnightly from this coming Wednesday (April 17th), the Isle of Wight County Press reports the market is to be held at St Thomas' Square in Newport.

Farmers' market chairman Jim Mew told the publication: "There will be a full range of fresh meats, flavoured sausages, pies, breads, cakes and vegetables available and a range of seasonal plants, including vegetable plants."

Stalls will open from 10:00 BST and finishing times for the market will differ each time depending upon demand.

Meanwhile, visitors to the island looking for a more garlicky treat for their tastebuds might like to head along to this year's Isle of Wight Garlic Festival, which will be taking place on August 17th and 18th and is expecting more than 25,000 guests.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801571636-ADNFCR
