Martock Farmers Market, Moorlands Shopping Precinct

Martock Farmers Market, Moorlands Shopping Precinct


Saturday, 12th May 2018

Held on the second Saturday of every month in Moorlands Shopping Precinct. 10.00 am to 1.00 pm. 16 stalls selling a variety of local produce including buffalo meat, honey, fudge, flapjack, poultry, fruit gin, cakes, bread, plants, vegetables, cheese, cider, chocolates and home-roasted coffee. Ring Fergus Dowding on 01935 822202 to order any food from these producers, or to ask for a stall at one of our markets.

Each month we have around 16 stalls, all carefully chosen for the quality of their produce.  And also to give a balanced and wide range of interesting food to buy.  They are all small or part-time growers, working for low wages but with great enthusiasm for the taste of the food they grow or make.   And often we have “guest” stalls, perhaps new people trying their hand at marketeering, a community group such as the Scouts, or students baking to raise money for a project, so there is often a delicious surprise waiting for you at our market.


This is a list of our regular stallholders, but please bear in mind that, because of the small nature of these businesses, they are sometimes unable to attend:
