Find out more about Somerset Farmers’ Markets
Somerset Farmers’ Markets is a not-for-profit organisation which runs markets across the county. In common with all farmers’ markets, the central aim of Somerset Farmers’ Markets is to offer high-quality, locally produced food direct from the producer.
Producers who join one or more markets become a member of Somerset Farmers’ Markets. The markets are steered by the producers through a Board of Directors elected by and from the membership. The markets are organised by our Market Coordinators and a Day Manager oversees each individual market.
The produce that can be sold at our markets is governed by a set of criteria which require that the produce must:
- if at all possible, originate in the local area
- be produced by a member of Somerset Farmers’ Markets
- be sold by someone involved in the production
