It has been a good start to the year for Lewes Farmers’ Market. Not only did it pick up the coveted “Best Farmers’ Market” award at the Sussex Food and Drink awards in January, but organisers Common Cause have secured planning permission to operate a second monthly market in Cliffe Precinct.
It will open for business on Sunday, May 19. The demand for local produce in Lewes is higher than ever and the market has traditionally had a long waiting list of growers and makers wanting to bring their produce to the throngs committed to shopping locally .
The new Sunday market will be a mix of the Saturday traders, Gourmet Game, High Weald Dairy and Ouse Valley Foods, to name just a few, and a brand new selection of local producers with some exciting wares to offer, including, pies, pottery, curries, preserves and skincare, as well as new local plant growers .
The Sunday market will run from 10am–2pm.
The first Saturday of the month market will continue as usual from 9am–1pm.
