"Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what's for lunch."

The Clevedon Village Farmers' Market opened on November 20, 2005 with over 20 stalls offering a wide variety of produce. Its aim has always been to offer top-quality, fresh food direct from producers to consumers. In so doing, the market supports smaller, local producers and encourages sustainable production practices.
Since 2005, the Clevedon Village Farmers' Market has flourished, and it now encompasses over 50 stalls selling delicious fresh produce and provisions - from just-picked seasonal fruit and veg to meat, fish, poultry, cheese, yoghurt, pickles, preserves, smallgoods, sauces, baking, bread, eggs, confectionary, wine, juice, plants and fresh flowers. No two weekends at the market are exactly the same - each season brings its own rewards and our stallholders' offerings vary accordingly.
The market has become a popular destination for both locals and visitors, who appreciate not just the excellent shopping on offer, but also the market's idyllic rural setting and its relaxed, friendly atmosphere. While mum and dad do the shopping, the kids enjoy wandering around the stalls, meeting their friends and taking pony rides on fine days.
