Dorset Farmers' Markets


Warm, golden coloured stone buildings, dating from between the 15th and 18th centuries, line the narrow streets of Sherborne. Its principal building is the Abbey, founded in 988 and at one time the seat of a bishop.

Sherborne also boasts two castles, both on the eastern edge of the town; the ruins of the old castle date from the 12th century;  Sir Walter Raleigh began building the nearby New Castle in 1592 and was enlarged in the 17th century by its present owners, the Digby family.

The farmers' market is held on the third Friday of the month from 9am - 1pm.
