Our range of food stalls rivals the very best farmers markets with fresh, locally sourced produce and regional specialities. You won’t find any excess plastic packaging here and our fruit hasn’t come from the deep freeze! Everything is freshly picked each week giving you longer lasting, better tasting food. And, with meat that travels on average less than 2 miles from farm to stall, we give a whole new meaning to shopping local.

But, the food is just the start. Our market has got you covered for all the essentials from key cutting to gift shopping, arts and crafts or picture restoration. Plus you can forget buying in bulk and save on waste by finding exactly what you need, when you need it.

It’s easy to walk past and miss the variety of goods available so if in doubt please ask a trader. They are here to help, our service is as friendly as you’d expect from a loyal community market.
