The St Ives Farmers Market is held every Thursday at the Guildhall St Ives in the hall on the right hand side of the main building from 9.30 am till 2pm. It is not only a very friendly and sociable place to go, it also is the perfect opportunity to buy local, fresh and delicious produce.
The market really focuses on showcasing local producers (within a 30 mile radius). The main stalls are food and drink and the stalls do vary from week to week.
It is good not only for the environment (reducing food miles) but also good for the local economy. It puts money straight back into Cornwall, rather than the big supermarkets and big businesses.
Things on offer last week were locally grown vegetables and herbs, cakes, pastries, bread, olives, cheese, fresh fish, honey, vegetarian and vegan specialities. There were also stalls selling art, crafts and plants and flowers.
There is a little cafe inside the market which does great tea and cakes and there are buskers to entertain you!
Here is a list of the stallholders that you can find at the St Ives Farmers’ Market. Do bear in mind that these do vary from week to week. Most of them are on facebook, so if you are wanting something specific you could always check in with them there.
The market is run by a community group called. GULP (Great-tasting Unbeatable Local Produce). It’s a not-for-profit organisation that was set up to support local food producers and make local produce more widely available in St Ives.
