Farmers market hygiene?
Found 9th Jun
Seems these farmers markets are popping up all over the country but I worry about food hygiene. It was 23c today so really hot and the market was from 9am - 1.30 pm. All the pies and cheese along with fresh meats were out on display with no cover. It was sited right next to a stream so lots of insects and flies. Many store holders were waving their hands as flies landed on the food. This can never be a good thing can it? Is there no food standard they need to follow? Why can't they put a few items out for display and place the food goods in some kind of cool closed storage and sell that. People were looking and I'm sure we were all thinking the same. I ain't buying that. I see this sort of thing often and it puzzles me
