It is not clear in view of current restrictions where the Market can be held from month to month and it is important, even for local people, to be on the confidential E-mail system so that you are kept up to date on venue, times etc.


Our Farmer's Market is run by volunteers for the benefit of Matching Village Hall Registered Charity No 301366.  We celebrated our 14th Birthday in October 2021, so you can see that the Market is well established.

We concentrate on locally produced fresh food and drink as the main focus of the Market.  This supports the local economy and, where possible, the local community.  Quality craft and plant stalls add variety to the Market.

We hope that the quality of the food and crafts on offer will please you.  Buying free range, locally reared meat and, where possible, other freshly prepared food from local producers at reasonable prices, reducing food miles and food packaging, is what it is all about.

We provide refreshments for customers when regulations allow.

If you have any questions or comments on the Farmer's Market, please contact Don Cramphorm, Market Co-Ordinator on 01279 731312 or by email on
