Hailsham Farmers Market 

The Deputy Mayor of Hailsham is encouraging people to stop by and shop at the next local Farmers’ Market, which takes place in Market Street on Saturday 9th September.

“Visitors to the Farmers’ Market can expect a wonderful selection of locally sourced quality, fresh produce on offer, meet up with friends and neighbours, and support the local economy into the bargain,” said Deputy Mayor Councillor Amanda O’Rawe.

Hailsham Farmers’ Market, which takes place at the Cattle Market site in Market Street on the second Saturday of every month from 9am to 12.30pm offers shoppers fresh meat, fruit and vegetables, dairy products, honey, bread, cakes, eggs, jams, pickles, pies, as well as bespoke craft items.

With free, easy parking and their own Market Cafe, the market is just a 5-minute walk away from the town centre.

Councillor O’Rawe said: “The concept of Farmers’ Markets nationally is to help farming and to promote locally sourced food and crafts to the local population. Hailsham Farmers’ Market, based in the only active Livestock Market in Sussex, is no exception. They have been trading for over a decade and are living proof that Farmers’ Markets are a vital link between the farmer and the consumer.”

“People come to farmers’ markets for a number of reasons including the reassurance that they are consuming healthy and ethically sourced food, as well as having the opportunity to talk directly to farmers which is characteristic of such markets.”

“Whatever the reason, there is something truly amazing about our local farmers’ market. The traders have worked hard to build their business and a thriving market.”
