Farmers Markets are cropping up throughout London. They are based in some of London’s trendiest areas for communities to gather together to eat and drink fresh produce.
Due to their popularity and daily presence, the Urban Farmer wanted to find out whether there were any struggles that farmers markets had and if customers are truly satisfied.
According to Friends of Earth, public authorities are not receiving enough funding to look after the running of the markets. The cost of sites has made the problem more difficult for the authorities.
From the data it is clear that customers are attending farmers markets more – due to their annual turnover which on average is higher than customers who are going to retailers.
This explains the percentage of people who also shop elsewhere as the majority of farmers markets are not a daily occurrence.
