Gerb’s Stroud Farmers’ market news Wednesday 5th February 2020

Ooh I do like to announce a new stall coming to the market so I’m delighted to welcome Proper Probiotics this week. The human gut is more complex than previously thought and has a huge impact on whole-body health. A healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system, heart health, brain health, improved mood, healthy sleep, and effective digestion, and it may help prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases. Fermented foods and drinks have a huge role to play in keeping our gut vibrant.

At Proper Probiotics they believe everybody should have an easy, delicious and versatile way to get a wider fauna of healthy bacteria in our guts and through this improve every aspect of our lives. They have taken traditional knowledge of fermented foods and given it a modern twist through exciting flavour combinations to provide beautiful bacteria for your belly. All products are made using the finest and freshest ingredients, mostly from farmers’ markets, to deliver the best possible flavour. Every product is vegan, raw & unpasteurised and will keep in the fridge for a month after opening. The range includes Kimchi and Sauerkraut in a wide range of flavours. They will be at the market every 2nd and 4th Saturday, dovetailing with The Happy Gut Hut, the kombucha man, who comes on the 1st and 3rd.

As it is the last market before Valentine’s Day customers may like to know Costello and Hellerstein luxury chocolate truffles and fudges will be available, plus the Rebel Fudge Co, Sibling Distillery, Stroud Brewery, Cotswold Handmade soaps and candles and Woodchester Valley Vineyard; all good ideas for a gift for a loved one.
