Kings Norton Farmers Market
“Know ye, that we, graciously cherishing the common good and benefit of the inhabitants of Kings Norton…do give and grant… that they hold and keep, to the sole and proper benefit and use of the inhabitants of the same town of Kings Norton…a market to be held and kept on Saturdays… Attested by the King at Westminster on the 15th May 1616”
King James I, 1616
The above charter was issued on the 15th May 1616 by King James I, to establish a market on the green at Kings Norton. It was re-established as a Farmers' Market in June 2005 by a group of local foodies and enthusiasts, with a passion for local produce.
The Kings Norton Farmers' Market was set up by a group of local residents who wanted to make a difference to their community. The market is a not-for-profit organisation, with any surplus being invested directly back into the local community - through our status as a Community Interest Company.
The market, which takes place on the second Saturday of every month from 9am - 2pm, plays host to over 25 producers each month - most from within 40 miles of Birmingham. The market provides local, healthy, fresh food direct from the people who make it. It's also a great way for the community to come together each month.
The Kings Norton Farmers' Market is a non-political organisation.
