Stalls for the month
Thames Ditton Farmers' Market Needs Your Help
We are losing a few key members of our Thames Ditton Farmers’ Market Organising Committee. We need to find replacements for these key roles, to keep it going long term. The Thames Ditton Farmers’ Market is probably the most important monthly event in the village. Being part of the volunteer organising committee for this much-loved community venture is rewarding in so many ways. New members would play an active role in driving it forward. If you have a few hours each month to commit to some important tasks such as: liaising with existing stallholders and actively seeking new ones, arranging publicity, booking artists, crafters and entertainment, providing social media and website updates, assisting with the set up and take down of the market on the day etc, we’d love to hear from you. To find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be in touch.

The Tomato Stall
The Tomato Stall’s speciality tomatoes are all grown in the Arreton Valley on the Isle of Wight. It has some of the highest levels of sunlight anywhere in the UK and a milder maritime climate. Paul Thomas and the team grow a large variety of different tomatoes: a mixture of organic and conventional, traditional heirlooms and super-sweet mini varieties, and bring them directly from the glasshouses to the Farmers’ Market, often arriving with fruit that was picked just the day before. Tomatoes are allowed to fully ripen on the vine, allowing the natural sugars to develop and maximising flavour.
Their Isle of Wight nursery operates a completely biodegradable growing system, composting all waste including the coconut husk the plants are grown and the string used to train them. The compost is then used to enrich the soil of the organic crops the following year. The Tomato Stall aims to have as much organic produce as possible at the various locations every week, sometimes as much as 60%.
As well as fresh tomatoes there is a wide range of 100% natural and absolutely-additive-and-preservative-free tomato products made using the sweetest and tastiest Isle of Wight tomatoes. The range includes pure tomato juice, passata, semi dried oak roasted tomatoes, condiments and even the world’s first pressed tomato cordial
