Chichester Farmers Market
Chichester District first Farmers' Market was held in 1998. They have been held regularly every month since then, growing in size and frequency over time.
Today the markets are held on the 1st and 3rd Friday each month in Chichester.
Each market is attended by stallholders selling a wide variety of fresh quality produce.
All our stallholders are required to grow, rear, bake, and/or preserve all their produce and are based within 30 miles of Chichester. The majority of our stallholders are primary producers offering a wide variety of meat, fruit, vegetables and eggs. Other types of produce include fish, cheeses, honey, cakes, chutneys and plants. In addition you will find a number of guest producers who provide specialities across the year.
We believe our markets are one of the best in the region. All of our markets (Chichester and Petworth) are certified with the National Farmers' Market Association (FARMA). This means our markets are 'genuine' Farmers' Markets and all our stallholders have to comply with the following conditions to attend:
- All produce must be grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked, smoked or processed by the stallholder
- The stallholder must be from the local area.
- All processed food must contain a minimum of 30% local ingredients where possible
