Do something rasher…


A great evening and well worth the trip.

Last night, I attended Walsall’s great night market event, and like the huge majority of those who actually at attended, I enjoyed it a great deal. Contrary to some comment, there were plenty of local traders there who were flying the flag for the borough. My attention was drawn particularly to the pork products stall held by Big Tasties, from Brownhills.

Readers of my 365daysofbiking journal will remember that last year, I was fascinated by the fine pigs being kept on the smallholding on the patch of land between the A5 and canal at Newtown, Brownhills. It seems they were destined for fine butties and breakfasts. I wonder if the sheep were destined for the table, too?


Bacon from pigs that died happy. What’s not to love?

You can’t beat free range produce. I suggest you check these people out. They’re on Facebook, too.

Also present were other other traders, like Slow Loaf from Walsall, whose excellent artisan baking is developing somewhat of a cult following. Brum’s Tan Rosie, makers of fine Carribean sauces and condiments were there, too. I love their spicy mango sauce on my chips.

I don’t know when the next night market is likely to be, but ignore the miserablists. It was a fine do, and great fun.


The products, by all accounts, are very tasty indeed! Click on the image to visit Big Tasties website.
