Our update section –

This is where we will notify you if we ever have to

cancel the market or to inform you of special

activities we will be having, such as taster days….

so keep an eye on the website.


Each week we have a tempting selection of 

sweet and savoury bakes, pickles, preserves

and marmalades as well as local honey. 

There really is nothing like the taste of

homemade produce. We sell seasonal plants

and garden produce, freshly picked so keep

coming along to see what we have on offer.

You will find a wide range of craft items on

offer, all locally made by our skilled crafters

with many tempting gift ideas that you won’t

find on the high street.  We have accessories

for all ages along with practical gifts, knitwear

and sewing, beadwork and cards with designs

unique to our producers.

Our logo says “COOK, CRAFT, GROW”.  If you

like to do any of these and would like to be part

of a local cooperative, please come along and

see what we are about!  We always welcome

new members!


All items can be ordered in advance at the

It is the ideal place to buy freshly made home baked sweet and

savoury dishes. 

Throughout the year there is a range of cakes, buns and

meat dishes.  

There are seasonal items of baking available too.


We also have a wide variety of jams, marmalades,

chutneys, pickles and honey.  

We now offer a range of gluten-free

products.  Come and meet the producer and find out more.

We offer fruit and vegetables in season,

along with plants and flowers.


There is always a wide selection of beautiful

hand made crafts, ranging from jewellery to knitwear,

modern fashion bags to hand made greetings cards –

you will always be able to find a special gift.

Why not take advantage of our hamper service?  

Just tell us what you would like and we will make up

a hamper to your specific requirements,

making this the ideal gift for family and friends.  


Each week you can place an order to reserve your choice

of products for collection at the following week’s
