Whether it's just a cuppa and company you need, or artisan baking, preserves, heritage herb and veg plants or a barrow full of fresh produce for an extended family feast.
This market is wonderful, we usually do a walk around and get the main things for a big family lunch, all fresh and delightful, gourmet and interesting, the tomatoes of all different colours, were amazing.

Step back in time to show your grandchildren how we used to live without technology, great for any ages but even little children will love it as they can touch and play with everything.
It's very kid friendly with many activities and displays for kids to touch, turn on and off etc, a real learning experience for everyone!
