Bath invented the whole idea of the farmers’ market, with the very first set up in Bath in 1997, drawing on the superb range of produce in the region.
What is a farmers’ market?
The concept of a farmers’ market is not a new one – farmers have always bartered and sold their goods. A farmers’ market simply sells locally produced goods to local people.
Farmers’ markets benefit the local environment by encouraging small-scale, less intensive production, reducing the effects of long distance transport of goods and reducing packaging.
Bath Farmers’ Market has pride in being the first farmers’ market in the UK – we are sustainable and grant free – something we are enormously proud of.
At Bath Farmers’ Market you will find quality, fresh, seasonal produce at a fair price. The goods are sold directly by the people who produce them and everything usually comes from within a 40 mile radius of Bath.
