In the historic town of Hexham which is located south of the River Tyne and Hexham Market is a long established farmers market in the heart of the town which provides produce from within a 50 mile range of the town. The a high percentage of meat reared and vegetables are grown locally. All bake products eg., bread and cakes contain locally produced flour and eggs. The producers are commited to value for money for a good quality product. The Hexham Farmers’ Market has been nominated for the BBC Food and Farming Awards 2015. This is hugely exciting news! We understand that the judges will whittle down the national list down to 3 finalists in February. It’s wonderful to see and hear how positive people are about our market.
Hexham Farmers’ Market takes place every second and fourth Saturday of the month, all through winter hours so the market will run between 9am and 1.30pm. Expect some great winter veg, and cheese producers, four meat producers providing you with rare breed pork, organic belted Galloway beef, organic lamb and mutton and a great range of sausages.
