Matter of quality
I have to agree with Mrs G Weatly (Letters, August 23) that prices are rather high at Murton Farmer’s Market, but you hope you are buying quality.
The beef is brilliant but so is that from your local butcher’s. We in Dunnington have been fortunate over the years to have had good butchers, so they deserve our support.
Recently, when we were without one for months, the village street was left wanting. We have every facility except a bank. Eggs at the farmers market are ridiculously priced; at a local village they are £2.50 per tray, not £6.50.
Vegetables are expensive too, organic or whatever. On the other hand it is a great day out, good food and drinks sensibly priced and a great variety of stalls, anything from charity to cakes, preserves, etc. Super plants stalls, antiques; what more could we want?

• I AM writing in response to John Piercy’s letter of August 27. I have never responded to a letter before but felt I had to reply to Mr Piercy’s letter.
I could not agree more about the quality of his sausages and burgers from his stall at Murton farmers’ market. When you cook his sausages or burgers they are top quality; not like some cheaper ones from supermarkets that shrink and are full of fat.
I can highly recommend Mr Piercy’s produce and as the saying goes, “You pay for what you get” and in his case that is quality.
