MEAT & FISH

The Portland Scallop Co

Jamie Walker is based near Chesil Beach and most of the fish he sells at Sunday’s market will have been caught on the Dorset or Devon coast on Friday. What he sells depends on what the boats bring in, so his stall will have what’s in season from a range including bass, bream, monkfish, lemon sole, mullet, plaice, turbot, brill, lemon or dover sole, oysters and lobster, as well as rope-grown mussels and dived scallops. He’s also likely to bring whole cooked crab, home-made crab soup and fishcakes. Most of his fish will already be gutted and scaled, but any other preparation can be done at the market.

Hunts Hill Farm

At John and Georgina Emerson’s farm in Normandy, near Guildford, the beef is grass-fed and allowed to graze all year round; their chicken and ducks are all free-range and dry-plucked; and the free-range pork is mostly from saddlebacks. They’ll also be bringing a variety of different flavoured sausages and free-range duck and hen eggs to the market and cooking hot bacon, sausage and pulled pork rolls. www.huntshillfarm.com

Winterbourne Game

Chris Norcott specialises in the best seasonal game, including partridge, venison and wild boar, as well as casseroles, pies, terrines and burgers to cook at home. If you tend to steer clear of game because you don’t know what to do with it, Chris and his partner Kate will be happy to advise you on what to buy and how to cook it. They’ll also be cooking venison burgers, sausages and loin in rolls for delicious on-the-go lunches at the market. www.winterbournegame.co.uk
