The Market will always be held both inside and outside our Village Hall.  For information purposes, we recommend that all customers - even those local to the area - be on our confidential e-mail system run in accordance with the Data Protection Act.  This provides information on a monthly basis on stallholder attendance, special offers and product details, particularly concerning the fresh fish available.


Our Farmer's Market is run by volunteers for the benefit of Matching Village Hall Registered Charity No 301366.  We celebrated our 16th Birthday in October 2023, 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 businesses in 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 who fancy a cup of tea or coffee and/or a bacon sandwich.

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
