The aims of Crediton Farmers Market are to promote local and
seasonal produce and enterprise, to increase farm incomes to a level which
better reflects the value of the product, and to provide a focal point for
the local community.
Held on the first and third Saturday of every month between 10am and 1pm, Crediton Farmers Market takes place in the market square in Crediton which was designed and built with the market in mind. We have a wide range of produce available, both organic and traditional, free-range and locally made; including meat, poultry, fish, seasonal fruit and vegetables, cheese and dairy products, cakes, bread, eggs, plants, apple juice, cider, preserves, pottery, teas, coffees, olives, cards and hand-made soap. Most of our stallholders live less than 10 miles from the market which means that Crediton has one of the most local farmers markets in the country. Occasionally we may look further afield in order to keep the market as fresh and interesting as possible. But the produce does not travel more than 30 miles at the most. The result is one of the finest farmers markets in the county, a fact recognised by the readers of Devon Life magazine who voted us the Best Farmers Market of the Year for the third time.
We aim to make your visit a sociable and community occasion as well as a vibrant shopping experience. Come down to the market to shop and also enjoy a cup of Fairtrade tea or coffee, breakfast, soup from local ingredients, a locally-produced, freshly-cooked bacon butty or hot-dog, while meeting your friends. Chairs and tables provided!
We try to provide entertainment using local individuals and organisations, such as neighbourhood school choirs. We also support local community initiatives like the drive for Crediton to achieve Fair Trade Town status. This award was conferred on the town in 2007 at the market in recognition of our support.
