Welcome to the home page of Cullompton Farmers’ Market
Double winners of the Devon Life Food & Drinks Awards as the “Best Farmers Market in Devon 2009 and 2010“, as voted by our customers
Cullompton Farmers’ Market is held in the Higher Bullring, High Street, Cullompton, on the second Saturday in each month, 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Monthly farmers’ markets have been held in Cullompton since 10 June 1998 and each of them has been equally well attended and as successful as the first. Local people regularly attend the market as they know they can purchase fresh, quality food.
Refreshments are available, provided by vounteers for the benefit of the market. People are often seen chatting to neighbours who they would normally rush past in a supermarket. The farmers’ market was originated by the community and certainly has a community feel.
A farmers’ market is where local produce is sold to local people. All of the stall holders at the market have travelled less than 30 miles and are selling produce they grew, reared or created themselves. Cullompton Farmers’ Market was the first farmers’ market to be started in the South West. It is also the only one in the country to be set up by volunteers and not a local authority.
The number of stalls has been increased over the years, and new items have been added to the already wide range of produce. The markets have a unique atmosphere helped by events such as music provided by local musicians and children’s activities in the children’s corner. See our calendar page for information on what is coming up in future markets.
