March Market Information 

March is the month when things really start to move in the growing season. 
In fact the start of the year used to be Lady Day, The Feast of the Annunciation, 
25th March until 1752 in Britain when we adopted the Gregorian calendar and started our year on the 
1st January. From an agricultural viewpoint, it would have made sense to have stuck with the old system, 
starting the year on the spring equinox, in link with the seasons.
