here are many ethical considerations to make when choosing which product to buy these

days. For example, how many air miles has it taken in getting this product to me?

Is it in season or has it been held in refrigeration for many months or forced into production by artificial means? Does it contain lots of added ingredients to prolong its shelf life? Is it Organic? Fairtrade? To name but a few!

This is why Chesham Town Council and Chesham in Transition have been working together to bring a Local Produce Market to Chesham’s Market Square on Saturday, May 22, 2010. By buying locally produced goods you can be sure that you are not only supporting the local economy but that the food on your table has not travelled far to get there. You will get the opportunity to talk to the person who produced that food and you won’t have to travel far to buy from them as they are selling on your high street.

Local Produce Market coming to Chesham

Locally reared meat, pressed apple juice, preserves, cakes, chutney, oil, and honey are just a few of the products that will be on sale at the market which will run from 10am. We are sure this market will be

very popular and would like to make it a regular event. If you are a local producer and would like to be included in future events please contact the town hall on

01494 774842 who would be very pleased to hear from you. Chesham in Transition are a group of local residents who aim to enable and encourage the people of Chesham to take practical actions to lower our town’s carbon emissions and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
