The other Thursday (last Thursday of the Month) we popped into Durham to do a little sightseeing. The sightseeing was not for us, but our houseguest. It was by chance that the monthly ‘Farmers Market’ was being held in Market Square.
‘Famers Market’ was a bit of a stretch in terms of description.
There were only a few stalls. We had a quick gander at the market stalls, which really did only take a minute or so, and then we decided to buy a couple of Scotch Eggs from the The Clucking Pig Company. There was quite a varied selection of Scotch Eggs available, I chose two, one was ‘The Game Keeper’ with pheasant, venison and rabbit, and the other was ‘Black Pearl’ made from free range pork with award winning black pudding. They cost £2.50 each.
The following evening I decided to serve the Scotch Eggs with a salad. Both of the eggs had a good colour on the yoke, and both were very tasty. The quality and flavour was a million miles away from the mass produced ones that are sold in supermarkets.
