“Palma now

boasts 10

Michelin-star

restaurants,

a new wave

of tapas bars

and new food

markets”

I

t seems that almost every town in the country now boasts a farmers’

market, selling everything from bread and vegetables to meat and local

artisan crafts. But 20 years ago, these markets didn’t exist. The farmers’

market movement started in the UK in the 1990s as a result of poor farm

prices, providing family farms with a local route to market their produce. Today

there are markets across the UK providing thousands of farmers with a real

lifeline. On page 26 we’ve picked just 10 of the many brilliant markets around

the country – if you’re not sure where your nearest market or farm shop is, visit

www.farma.org.uk

to find out.

We continue on a food theme with a visit to Palma, which has undergone a

real foodie revolution. It now boasts 10 Michelin-star restaurants, a new wave

of tapas bars and new food markets. Our feature on page 42 will certainly whet

your appetite!

Next stop is London and the many secret islands dotted along the Thames,

many of which have a fascinating history. The largest house on Holm Island,

for instance, was once a romantic hideaway used by Edward VIII and Wallis

Simpson. Find out more on page 49.

Fancy trying your hand at 4x4 driving? Join our intrepid reporter on page 54

for Solihull’s Jaguar Land Rover Experience as she tackles mud, water – and

even a jungle – to find out more.

Even more intrepid is young Millie Knight, a champion skier, despite being

blind from the age of six. Meet Millie on page 16 as she prepares for the Winter

Paralympics in South Korea

On the business front, we meet three women on the remote island of Jura in

the Inner Hebrides who have created their own brand of gin, liberally laced with

sea lettuce; you can also pick up tips on transforming a business and find out

how to make sure only the best leadership attributes catch on at your workplace.

All this, and more.
