Aberystwyth Farmers’ Market has won Best Food Market in the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards 2014. The news was announced at a ceremony held in Bristol on Thursday 1 May.

Councillor Gareth Lloyd, Ceredigion County Council Cabinet Member for Economic and Community Development, said: “This is wonderful news. Just to be shortlisted was an excellent achievement in itself, but to go one better and win the award is very special. I’m glad that the fine work that’s been done has been recognised by Radio 4, and I’m sure it will play a part in promoting the market and helping it to grow even further.”

Launched in May 2000, Aberystwyth Farmers’ Market has up to 30 stalls every first and third Saturday in the month. In 2010 the market was voted amongst the Top 10 Farmers’ Market in the UK by the Times, the only Welsh market to be included.

Each year the BBC Food and Farming Awards celebrate the people and organisations behind the best of British food. The finalists start off as a nomination sent in by a member of the public and then a team of judges, including some of the UK’s best known chefs and food writers, select finalists in each of the ten categories which included Best Food Market, Best Drinks Producer, Best Food Producer, and Best Street Food/Takeaway.

Chef and writer Valentine Warner chaired this year’s panel of judges which also included farmer and Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, blogger Jack Monroe, food writer Charles Campion and chefs Raymond Blanc and Richard Corrigan.

Aberystwyth Farmers' Market Shortlisted for BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards 2014

Farmers MarketBBC Radio 4 has today (26 February) announced the finalists for the Food and Farming Awards 2014, and Abertystwyth Farmers' Market has been shortlisted in the Best Food Market category.

This year's awards have broken the record for public response with the highest number of entries ever being received, which have been whittled down to 24 finalists.

Chair of this year's judging panel, cook, writer and broadcaster Valentine Warner said: "The scale of the public's response has been overwhelming. We've seen more than 6000 nominations this year; a truly record breaking number and when we started to read through, it was humbling. So many stories of food producers and retailers, caterers and markets - all so loved and valued by their customers and their communities, and in every part of the UK. If anyone thinks the food renaissance has been confined to a few select areas, this list of finalists is proof that they're wrong".

Finalists in eight categories are announced today, and they include Aberystwyth Farmers' Market, nominated for the Best Food Market award. Launched in May 2000, the market has up to 30 stalls every first and third Saturday in the month. In 2010 the market was voted amongst the Top 10 Farmers' Market in the UK by the Times, the only Welsh market to be included. Aberystwyth Farmers' Market is one of only two finalists in Wales for this year's Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards, the other being the Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company, which has been nominated for the Best Street Food/Takeaway Award. Food Centre Wales, run by Ceredigion County Council, has been involved with this venture that celebrates local produce, combining foraged seashore ingredients with fresh local seafood.

Councillor Gareth Lloyd, Ceredigion County Council Cabinet Member for Economic and Community Development, said: "This is very good news, and worth noting that Aberystwyth is the only market in Wales to be shortlisted. I'm glad that the fine work that's been done is being recognised, and I'm sure it will play a part in promoting the market and helping it to grow even further. Let's hope we can go one better and win the award, but to be shortlisted is an excellent achievement." Each year the BBC Food & Farming Awards celebrate the people and organisations behind the best of British food. The finalists start off as a nomination sent in by a member of the public and then a team of judges, including some of the UK's best known chefs and food writers, select finalists in each of the ten categories which include Best Food Market, Best Drinks Producer, Best Food Producer, and Best Street Food/Takeaway.

This year's finalists will feature in a special edition of BBC Radio 4's The Food Programme, broadcast on Sunday 9 March 2014. Winners will be announced at a ceremony held in Bristol on Thursday 1 May 2014. Chef and writer Valentine Warner chairs this year's panel of judges which includes farmer and Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, blogger Jack Monroe, food writer Charles Campion and chefs Raymond Blanc and Richard Corrigan.

Winter Fair 2012

This year’s Winter Fair saw a new addition in the form of the Members Centre located on the main ring of the showground. The new area named “Gate to Plate exhibition” was brought to the show through a joint collaboration between the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society, Food Centre Wales, Dudley Newbury & RSS Hereford.

The idea of the “Gate to Plate Exhibition” was to extend the Winter Fair’s offerings and to bring a new dimension to the already very well established event.

The inside of the Members Centre featured a Christmas theme with a 20ft Christmas tree which was decorated with Welsh food product packaging. There were also 30 Farmers Market stalls located on the outside forming a food courtyard to draw the public into the Members Centre. Stall traders were encouraged to dress their stalls along the Christmas theme too with a prize awarded for the ‘best dressed stall’ which was presented by Dudley Newbery

An Artisan Ice Cream Competition featured within the Members Centre building which involved competitors bringing their liquid mixes to the show and freezing them in batch freezers at the specially constructed RSS Hereford ice cream parlour.

Judging took place in front of spectators and was judged by Italian Ice Cream expert Roberto Giacobbi, Mark Horsman from Food Centre Wales & Rachel Rowlands founder of Rachel’s Dairy.

The competition featured ten companies(six of which were dairy farm based) and a total of 31 entries with competitors travelling from West Wales, South Wales, Mid Wales, West Yorkshire, Cheshire and Herefordshire to compete.

There was also a purpose built Demonstration Kitchen within the Members Centre where there were Lamb Cutting Demonstrations presented by Pamela Thompson along with Turkey Leg De-boning demonstrations presented by Angela Sawyer, both from Food Centre Wales.

Sea2shore Festival 2011

Joint organisers of the inaugural Sea2Shore festival, Food Centre Wales and Aberystwyth & District Sea Angling Association extend a big thank you to all who supported the event in Aberystwyth on Saturday 20th August. Special thanks go to Communities First (Penparcau & West Aberystwyth) for their invaluable assistance in organising the Festival.

The festival was a resounding success, and despite the odd shower of rain it surpassed all their expectations with the promenade, Bandstand and Kings Hall Piazza heaving with well over 1,500 visitors and locals alike enjoying everything on offer during the interesting and fun packed day.

George Barratt and Carl Worrall of Aberystwyth & District Sea Angling Association said “We are over the moon with the large number of people who came to see the demonstrations and taste the wonderful sea food available to us from Cardigan Bay, and it just goes to show that there is a huge need and hunger for a regular festival of this nature on the Prom in Aberystwyth”.

The demonstrations from local and national organisations included the Aberystwyth RNLI inshore Life Boat, St John’s Ambulance, Aberystwyth Coastguards, Chip Pan Fire Safety with Aberystwyth Fire Brigade, Aberystwyth Air Cadets, Beach Casting with Carl Worrall and Tony Oates, Fly Casting with Emyr Breeze and Sue as well as Fly Tying with George Baron in the Bandstand. Moreover, hundreds of people lined the promenade to watch Life Saving on the beach with Aberystwyth Life Savers and Jeremy Turner giving a running commentary of the whole process as it unfolded before their eyes.

Highlights of the day within the Bandstand included two cooking demonstrations with local Penparcau boy made good ‘Dai Chef’. Dai and his team (his son and daughter, Dan and young Megan) wowed the audience with their culinary skills and local humor! They showed us how to cook fresh Salmon and made a fantastic Sea Food Chowder that members of the audience were able to taste. In addition, Gill Reacord from Gill’s Plaice in Aberdyfi gave an excellent demonstration on how to prepare Lobster and Crab. Both of their demonstrations were projected on to a large screen for all to see and hear.

A huge boost to the day was popular Radio Wales presenter Ollie Hides popping in to say hello. Ollie was brought up in Aberystwyth and his family still live in the area. He is a keen fisherman who knew many of the local characters present, and enjoyed the atmosphere of the festival on the Prom. By far the best catch of the day was local boy Carl Worrall who roamed the festival with his radio microphone and interviewed the experts about their fishing equipment and techniques…...he was a complete natural!

The stalls present on the King’s Hall Piazza were very popular with hundreds of people browsing and purchasing their products. Dean Parry’s water tank full of live Lobsters and Spider Crabs were a huge hit with adults and children alike.

Other popular activities available throughout the day in the Bandstand were, Craft workshops with Merry Makers and the National Library of Wales’ Culturenet Cymru Project provided digital storytelling activities. South and West Wales Association of Sea Angling Clubs were also present in the Bandstand to show examples of sea fishing rigs, rods and the first bio-degradable bait available in Wales.

In addition, the Treasure Hunt organised by Cynnal Y Cardi Officers was very popular with over 50 entrants and won by Orin & Edward and Molly Davis.They received fishing starter kits which were donated as prizes by Aberystwyth Fishing Tackle Shop and presented to the winners by eorge Barratt. Aberystwyth Sea Cadets organised a ‘Duck Race’ on the river in Trefechan to raise money for the organisation. The Sea Cadets wish to convey their appreciation to all who supported their event.

A special thanks goes to all who helped fund the event which included, Aberystwyth Town Council, Tourism Partnership Mid Wales, Communities First Penparcau & West Aberystwyth, Bam Nuttall (Civil Engineers) and Ceredigion County Council’s European LEADER programme Cynnal Y Cardi.
