It is generally accepted by most farmers' markets that stall holders must have grown, bred, caught, pickled, brewed or baked the goods themselves. Their main emphasis is to help local producers and processors to sell their goods directly to the public, near their source of origin.
The selection of goods available will vary with the season and location. However, you are likely to find a delicious selection of vegetables, fruit, meat, eggs, bread and cakes, fruit juices and dairy products.
There is generally a stall selling excellent cider and apple juices from Neals Place Farm, Canterbury; plus another, selling the excellent rare-breed pork and sausages from Wysipig of Arborfield. Excellent trout - both brown and rainbow - from Brookleas Fish Farm are also often available. FlourPowerCity is also generally present with their top-quality organic bread and other treats - such as their excellent chocolate brownies.
- Open: Held on the 1st Thursday of each month; between 9.00-15.00
