Each first Saturday of the month, a dedicated band of workers and volunteers, meet to set up stalls for one of the North East’s most popular farmers’ markets.
Barnard Castle Farmers’ Market is a place where foodies come to celebrate locally-grown foods, freshly-baked bread, puddings, game, meat, cheese and preserves. It’s also a place where people come to chat with the very people who grow, rear, pickle, brew and bake and always with a friendly smile.
At the market, everything is produced for maximum flavor and quality over quantity. So a late visit can often end in disappointment.
Supporting the farmers’ market not only helps the local community and improves the quality of food, but there’s also a unique and special sort of assurance, which comes from buying direct from the producer. As with many small independent traders, our stallholders are not anonymous and take their responsibility to you the customer very seriously.
This time-honored connection between consumer and grower is appreciated by all who attend the market. With your continued support local produces that sell direct are able to cut out the intermediary and receive the full retail price, which enables many of our traders to stay in business. By supporting Barnard Castle Farmers’ Market today, you’re helping to ensure there will be farms and artisan producers in our community tomorrow.
Happy New Year and enjoy your visit.
