Buy Isle of Wight produce.

If all Wightonians bought milk, bread, garlic, tomatoes, cheese, salad and anything else made here, think what it would do for the local economy and jobs.

Buy Wight!

Totally agree with buying locally produced products.

Is there a website somewhere showing what/where produce is available?

Are there any weekly markets back in Newport and Ryde?

Haven’t heard from the weekly Farmers’ Market yet, but the AtoZtoMe Website (directory of companies who deliver) has quite a lot of info


Well Mary Case has been back in the Farmers Market in Newport since June Im going to get my Honey on Friday 3rd July
