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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED

QUESTIONS

The majority of stalls are taking contactless payments. We are in the process of compiling a list which we will share once we have all the information.

Unfortunately not. There will be those who are not permitted to open yet due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and the government guidelines in relation to that. Certain stall holders are continuing to balance opening their stalls and continuing with deliveries, as a result their opening times may vary slightly to the market opening times. We appreciate your support for our traders at this time.
