Farmers' markets

Visit our monthly Farmers' Market in the beautiful surroundings of the University's campus and browse the range of stalls offering locally sourced, fairly priced and environmentally friendly produce from top quality organic goods to seasonal fare.

The Farmers’ Market on Wednesday 26 February has been cancelled due to the weather forecast. We’re sorry to disappoint you – but don’t worry, we’ll be back on Wednesday 25 March with all your favourites.

Typical stalls include:

  • Hindleys Bakery offering bread and cakes, arts and crafts stalls,
  • hot food stalls including ostrich meat and eggs, sausages served hot and cold, vegetarian foods,
  • Brockleby’s a savoury and sweet pie producer,
  • Norbury Norrest a producer who sells ciders, fruit wines, apple juice, jams and pickles.

The markets are on the fourth Wednesday of every month from September to May, except the Christmas market in December.

Markets all take place at University Square, starting at 10:00 and finishing at 15:00.
