Some Like It Hot at Orton!
February’s Orton Farmer’s Market (8 February) is taking a Some Like It Hot theme ahead of St Valentine’s Day. Regular producers will be suggesting spicy recipes and hot options while guest producer, Adam Marks from Mr Vikki’s, will be selling his range of Indian fusion pickles and chilli products as a special Valentine’s treat.
“Adam and Mary used to be regulars at Orton some years ago,” says Market Co-ordinator, Leanne Duerden. “Their business has really taken off since then and it will be great to welcome Adam – and his fiery pickles and sauces – to the Farmers’ market in February. With the current weather, I think we all need a bit of sunshine and warmth and this is just what we’ll get from the Mr Vikki range.”
Mr Vikki’s XXX Hot Chilli Jam was a winner in the 2013 Hot Pepper Awards, there were wins at the National Chilli Awards last year and the range won a total of 13 Great Taste Awards in 2013, including a 3-star Gold for the Banana Habanero.
“We’ve been making our pickles and sauces since 2005, first at Eamont Bridge near Penrith and now at our kitchens in High Hesket,” says Adam. “Apart from a regular presence at Keswick Market, we tend to sell mainly via retailers and the bigger food events now so it will be good to meet local customers at Orton and to have a chance to talk about some of the new additions to the range.”
Full details of the Orton Farmers’ Markets for 2014 are online at www.ortonfarmers.co.uk and the Market is open from 9.30am to 2pm with refreshments in the Market Hall, up at Church (with a secondhand book stall and bric a brac), at Silver Yard Café Deli, in the George hotel and at Kennedy’s Fine Chocolates.
Orton Farmers’ Limited was set up as a community enterprise company and has been operating as an accredited monthly Farmers’ Market in Orton since 2001, winning the National Farmers’ Market of the Year Award in 2005. The Market happens on the second Saturday of every month and can include up to 40 different stallholders, all of them coming from within a 50 mile radius of Orton and many of them from the immediate community, including local farmers.
