This market is 15 years strong! Classified as a market with a difference: “Not a flea market, not a craft market, not completely a farmer’s market but perhaps a bit of the best of all three.”

A lovely way to spend your Saturday morning browsing through books, filling your basket with locally produced cheeses, fresh mushrooms, delicious pies, freshly baked bread and organic vegetables.

Lovely, wholesome farm breakfast is served under the shady Oak Trees.
