Essex Farmers Markets

 

Farmers Markets are a very popular way to spend a morning or afternoon – browsing the stalls and stopping to try the food. They are often in attractive venues, close to other places to visit.

Essex has quite a number of markets, selling a variety of food, drink and other goods. Most take place once a month on a Saturday or Sunday. We’ve brought together a selection of markets across the county. Hopefully there will be one to suit you.
