Our farmers’ market brings together lots of fresh local produce, for you to enjoy every Saturday.

Stalls vary from week to week, but you’ll usually find a good range of vegetables, fruit, bread, cheeses, meat, cakes, eggs, preserves, oils, juices and pottery (from our very own Jessica Joslin), textiles from Stitches in Time, and perhaps something carved by the Greenwood Guild.

As well as delicious ingredients to take home to your kitchen, some stallholders offer freshly-cooked meals and snacks using local produce, that you can to enjoy right away whilst you are at the farm.

The market often features a fishmonger who sells a variety of fish and seafood – and can also give you tips on the best way to prepare it. There is a selection of fresh, free range meat and other produce from Marsh Farm every week – whole chickens, chicken portions, bacon, several varieties of sausages, cuts of beef (their sirloin in particular has been recommended by a regular customer!), lamb, eggs, cheese, milk and more. They specialise in rare breeds and can advise on your purchase if you have a particular meal in mind. There’s also a weekly stall selling juice made from their farm’s very own produce along with game if you fancy something a bit different.

There’s a wide variety of organic fruit and vegetables available on a weekly basis (thanks to Whitegates Farm, Brockmans Farm and others), as well as an impressive range of breads, including sourdough and gluten free. If you have a sweet tooth, you could even sample a “crodn’t” (inspired by the donut and croissant hybrid that took New York by storm).

Don’t miss out on the stall selling chilli based condiments, which makes a regular appearance. All are home-made and vegetarian (and the majority are gluten free), making them a versatile gift for any food lover in your life.

If you can’t wait long enough to get home and cook up a feast then rest assured there’s some ready to eat treats available, too. You might be able to snack on some olives, gourmet sausages or freshly made (vegetarian) pierogi as you peruse the pottery stall or even have your bike repaired.

Stall holders are more than happy to chat to you about what they’re selling, whether you’re in need of recipe ideas or simply want to know where your food has come from.

Make a day of it: meet animals large and small, enjoy our gorgeous green space and relax with some of London’s best coffee at our cafe.

Our Farmers’ Market is organised by by City & Country Farmers’ Markets; a family-run company running markets across London.
