The BBC1 Food Inspectors programme (Wednesday 30 January, 8pm) featured the Taunton farmers' market - and anyone watching would have given the farmers and food producers top marks for food hygiene standards.
Visiting stalls with Carol, Head of Training at the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, presenter Matt asked how food, like raw meat and cheese, was kept safe while at the market. Carol found no fault at all with the temperature controls at the market, and praised the Common Loaf stallholders on the way they handled bread and money with one gloved and one un-gloved hand. Alighting at a meat stall, Matt found chorizo, made on the farm by Donna, who explained how the meat was cured. He then went to the immaculate prep-room at the farm where he helped to make a batch of chorizo sausage. It was fantastic to see people at work who really cared about the food!
