Stroud Farmers’ Market

Widely acclaimed to be one of the country’s busiest and biggest farmers’ markets, with visitors flocking from far and wide, this popular venue also manages to feel small, intimate and very local at the same time…

Stroud Farmers’ Market features over 60 stalls, with stall holders selling a wide variety of wares, including pottery, jewellery, beauty products, essential oil candles, plants and clothing.

It has been the accolade of Best Farmers’ Market in the UK and has been featured in The Sunday Telegraph, The Observer, The Independent, The Guardian Weekend, The Times, and the Country Living Guide to Farmers’ Markets amongst many other publications.

That said, it’s the locally-produced food and drink stalls that are the weekly regulars and that tend to be the stars of the show.

Every Saturday, you’ll find people queuing for gourmet favourites such as the Olive Stall, Pippin Donuts, Hobbs House Bakery, Plenty Pies and The Artisan Baker.

Turn up in time for lunch, and enjoy street food from Niang’s Thai Snacks, Saira’s South Asian Savouries, Girish’s Vegan Indian Food, Raclette Raclette, Funky Falafels, as well as freshly cooked hot dogs and burgers from Hinton Marsh and Adeys Organic farms.

There’s also a wide range of local, seasonal produce on offer every week, both organic and non-organic, giving you the chance to try new and exciting home-grown produce that you would not usually find in the supermarkets.

For cheese lovers, on different Saturdays of the month, there are different cheesy treats in store. Choose from Warner’s favourites Simon Weaver Organic BrieGodsell’s Artisan Cheese, plus a range of goats’ cheeses, the multi award-winning Bath Soft Cheese, and the highly sought-after Jonathan Crump single Gloucester.

With free samples to taste at many of the stalls, live music from local buskers and regular free events, Stroud Farmers’ Market makes for a great family day out.
