Thames Valley Farmers markets

www.tvfm.org.uk

I used to go to the one in Beaconfield - 4th Saturday of the month. Good selection of produce - meat, veg, bread, trout, jams and cakes, plants. Quite expensive but not surprising given the local area

Hampshire farmers markets.

http://www.hampshirefarmersmarkets.co.uk/dates/default.asp

This site list the dates for the whole year, which is good, also they tell you who is attending, although this must change.

No website, but there's a nice little farmer's market near me - Crew's Hill, the road with masses of garden centres, near Enfield (North London). Thirs Thursday of every month at Woldens Nursery (next one this coming Thursday) in the car park.

Only small, but fairly comprehensive selection of stalls - meat, cheese, cakes, fish, game, veg, pies, eggs etc.

Starts at 9am and I'd suggest getting there early, as it's on Pension day and the local Saga Louts get their money and hop on the train up to Crews Hill to do the market then go round the garden centres. One day they cleared the fish stall in 5 minutes flat.

I've only just seen this thread, if you're in Surrey/Sussex this farm shop is fab, it's in Itchingfield just outside Horsham, West Sussex.
