The first Farmers' Market in Grimsargh was held in Spring 2006, as a fund-raising event for the Village Hall.
After that initial successful trial they have continued, now being held on the third Saturday of every month except January.
The Markets have become an embedded and enjoyable part of Grimsargh village life, being popular with both locals and visitors from further afield.
As most people are aware, there is a growing interest in obtaining fresh products directly from producers and Farmers' Markets meet that need and give people welcome access to our excellent local Lancashire farmers, together with artisan food and craft producers.
Our Regular stalls offer a range of meats, cheeses, cakes, eggs, preserves, artisan breads, chocolates, vegetables, ready meals and also a selection of crafts. Check out our galleries for more photos.
There are additional seasonal stalls selling plants and ice cream.
Alongside the market is the popular cafe which provides welcome refreshments serving teas and coffees, breakfast barms and fresh homemade soups.
The monthly markets also provide valuable income towards the upkeep of the Village Hall, with all monies from the stall-holders’ fees and profits from the café going into the Hall funds.
All those involved in running the market and café are doing so on a voluntary basis.
We are delighted with the ongoing success of our Farmers Markets and hope they continue to provide an enjoyable Saturday morning interlude for all!
