Meat, poultry and game
As a traditional market town in the North of England, you'd expect meat to be a strong feature of Hexham Farmers' Market. After all, most of the farming in our part of Northumberland, Cumbria and the west of County Durham involves sheep and cattle. And Hexham farmers' market doesn't disappoint: you will find a great range of meat producers at every market, throughout the year. Heather grown lamb, traditional Galloway beef, rare-breed pork are all available and even mutton appears occasionally.
