Welcome to the Ashbourne NeighbourFood market!
Every week you'll find great products direct from local farmers and food producers. Buying from the NeighbourFood market allows you to buy and collect your food locally, cutting down on food miles and it allows you to meet and talk directly to the producers. Advance ordering also means that any waste is minimised.
We have a range of products on sale including artisan bread, meat,cheese, honey etc, with new and different products being added all of the time. The products will also change during the season, to reflect whats being grown and harvested.
Why buy from local producers?
Firstly, it will taste fantastic! The food you are buying will be freshly baked, bottled, harvested or roasted on the day you collect it and without additional preservatives or additives.
Secondly, you are ensuring the money stays local. 90p of every £1 you spend stays in the local economy and the food producer or farmer receives 80% of the takings (as compared to only 20-40% they might receive from the supermarket).
Thirdly, local producers are working in small batches so they can ensure the highest quality. Local producers will also know first hand everything about their product, so you can ask questions, about ingredients and food origins, and talk to the people who actually know.
