Somerset Farmers' Markets Ltd
For over ten years, Somerset Farmers’ Markets Ltd has been organising farmers’ markets at a variety of attractive locations in the historic county of Somerset. From picturesque market squares to vibrant high street locations, each market venue provides local communities and visitors to the area with a wide variety of fresh, high quality, locally produced food. We currently have ten regular markets spread throughout the month.
Somerset Farmers’ Markets is a not-for-profit organisation which runs markets across the county. In common with all farmers’ markets, the central aim of Somerset Farmers’ Markets is to offer high-quality, locally produced food direct from the producer.
Producers who join one or more markets become a member of Somerset Farmers’ Markets. The markets are steered by the producers through a Board of Directors elected by and from the membership. The markets are organised by our Market Coordinator and a Day Manager oversees each individual market.
The produce that can be sold at our markets is governed by a set of criteria which require that the produce must:
- if at all possible, originate in the local area
- be produced by a member of Somerset Farmers’ Markets
- be sold by someone involved in the production
