The Green Market believes that agriculture should again become a foundational sector of a successful economy. We believe that interconnected small scale but intensive food farming hubs around our small islands can feed our population. Diversity of crops, rotation of crops, composting, the reintroduction of small ruminant herds all could contribute to the production of healthier food and reduce our food import bill which will definitely be unsustainable with falling oil and gas prices.
Do I choose to consume in a way that respects and sustains those who are producing for my needs? Do I really need all the stuff I consume and do I waste what can be reused or recycled? The Green Market is a place where you can think about these questions that challenge our 21st century world with other like-minded people.
The best food is fresh food that comes directly from the Earth to your plate without too much fuss. The Green Market showcases the amazing food that you can create from the garden grown goodness in the Market with our Sunday morning cooking demonstrations.
Socially and emotionally engaged ecoliteracy, therefore, encourages us to gather and share information collectively, and to collectively take action to foster sustainable living.
The Green Market has a soft spot for children. We have been delighted to see three and sometimes four generations together in the Market.
