LRA Farmers Market

LRA Farmers Market

On the second Sunday of every month, you will find a wide range of stalls in Loughton High Road, selling a range of foods direct from the producers. The market is held 9am - 3pm, opposite The Last Post. Residents have been delighted that this regular space gives them the opportunity to meet each other.

LRA 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. When in 2017 Hughmark were no longer able to supply gazebos for the stalls, we switched to Essex Farmers Markets, who run several markets in the area. They take the bookings from stallholders, supply the gazebos and collect the rents from the traders; LRA receives no money for arranging the Market.

Most months, LRA has a display with a topical theme about the town, a 'help point' where residents can consult LRA councillors or members of the LRA committee and a second-hand book-stall (which pays for our display materials and contributes to our other running costs).

LRA also helps local charities and local voluntary organisations by offering two stalls free of charge each month.
