Farmers’ Markets – Find A Farmers’ Market Near St Ives Cornwall

Here is my list of our local Markets in and around St Ives Cornwall
St Ives Farmers’ Market
When: weekly on a Thursday from 9:30am – 2pm
Where: The Guildhall in St Ives on Street-an-Pol
St Ives Farmers’ Market is the farmers’ market closest to my heart. I love the place and visit it most weeks. It is brimming full of local producers and there is often something new and exciting to try.
St Ives Farmers’ Market runs every Thursday from 9:30am to 2pm in The Guildhall in St Ives. If you walk down Street-an-Pol (near Weatherspoons off Tregenna Hill) you will see the wares brimming out of the hall at the side of The Guildhall.
I love the ethos behind St Ives Farmers’ Market. They say that any business that grows, bakes, rears, catches, smokes, brews or cures local food (within 30 miles of St Ives) is eligible to take part in the market. They favour free range and organic and the majority of the stalls sell food or drink. They really try to have a varied range of stalls and try to avoid having stalls selling similar things. This makes for a very interesting farmers’ market.
St Ives Farmers’ Market do have a very good website with details of lots about their regular stall holders. Click here to visit it.
