On the first Sunday
of every month*, you will find a wide range of
stalls in Loughton High Road, selling a range of foods direct from the
farm. The market is held 9.00am - 2.00pm, opposite The Last Post.
Residents have been delighted that this regular space gives them the
opportunity to meet each other.
LRA Farmers Market
started these Sunday Farmers Markets in July 2002 as a way of meeting a
need in the town. We had no experience of managing markets, and we had
no stalls or other equipment, so we turned to Hughmark
Ltd. LRA takes the bookings for stalls, but
Hughmark supplies the stalls and collects the rents from the traders;
LRA receives no money for arranging the Market.
We continue to work to maintain the variety and number of stalls.
Most months, LRA has a display with a topical theme about the town, and
a 'help point' where residents can consult LRA councillors or members
of the LRA committee.
for sale include fresh organic vegetables, handmade cheeses and
butter, free range eggs, various meats, including wild boar, honey and
preserves, apple juice, cakes and a large selection of plants.
LRA also helps local charities and
voluntary organisations by
offering two stalls free of charge each month.
LRA has a stall selling second-hand books. The money raised on this
stall contributes to the cost of the LRA displays at the Market and
other running costs.
To book a stall contact Pauline
may be an extra market just before Christmas. Depending on which day of
the week New Year’s Day falls
on, there may not be a January market.
