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)


Ooo, that's where I grew up, Enfield! They didn't have a farmers market when I lived down there. Do you go to Enfield's town market on Saturdays?


Fife Farmers Market:

http://www.fifefarmersmarket.co.uk/

St Andrews - 1st Saturday of the month
Dunfermline - 2nd Saturday
Cupar - 3rd Saturday
Kirkcaldy - last Saturday

My favourite stalls are:

Langraw for their Highland beef (you see them in the fields opposite the caravan park just outside of St Andrews )

Puddledub for their water buffalo, pork and bacon

Fletchers for their venison

Hilton for their wild boar

and Iain Spink for his Arbroath Smokies.

Excellent markets all, and I never miss them.
Cupar this Saturday.

If you're in SE London there's one (not on the London Markets site) in Eltham, third Sunday of the month.

They've got some dodgy people working for them. Their veg are absolutely excellent though.

That's because the post you quoted is six years old.

Hi there, You're more likely to get people to look at your link if you tell us a bit about it, and yourself rather than just posting the url.

Noticed someone had posted the link for Hampshire Farmers Markets. There is a new one at Emsworth run by them, so more convenient for those who live in West Sussex. Check the dates, but usually the 3rd Saturday.

It was supposed to start in January this year, but the car park we use was under snow, so started in February. Emsworth is worth visiting as there are plenty of independant shops too. We do the charcoal, wood turning and associated bits btw.

Here's Otley farmer's market and a few others in north Yorkshire on the same website.
The Otley market is run on the last sunday of the month 8am-1pm
At the same time/date there are 2 other craft/designer markets in the town.
In the afternoon there's a really big car boot sale 12-4pm in case you had any money left.
