The Regeny Fayre at The Boringdon Hall Hotel has been organised by Jon of DH Events, Plymouth. The monthly fayre has craft and art stalls one month inside the hotel, the next month it hosts a farmers market with great local producers, on the green just outside the front of the hotel.
The Boringdon hall is a fantastic location for this farmers market, with glorious sunshine on the day I visited Sunday 23rd March, this was the second of a string of fayre’s organised by DH Events at the hotel this year , there is also plenty of free parking and the Hotel can be found on Boringdon Hill, Plympton, Plymouth PL7 4DP.

Eggardon Ryelands are farmers from Dorset, all their animals are raised outdoors, fed a natral diet and allowed to roam the beautiful Bride Valley.
Eggardon Ryelands bring their very own meat to markets and events in the Westcountry as well as offering a delivery service. I was lucky enough to try their sausages, which by the way are also gluten free and they were delicious, I made sure I came home with a few packets! They also take credit and debit cards at events, which is a great help.
As well as their excellent meat products, they sell cheese’s from Ford Farm and Windyridge, who make some of my favourites!
