Hampshire Farmers’ Markets brings fabulous produce to seven towns and cities across the county each and every month. Showcasing the best of what Hampshire has to offer, all of our stallholders are the producers; small businesses based in rural areas growing and rearing their own to bring to customers.
Authentic Hampshire Foods
HFM has long supported rural businesses, offering advice and support and, most importantly, a shop front for their produce. To become a member and bring goods to market, producers have to fulfill specific criteria. Firstly, they must source at least 20% of their ingredients from Hampshire or within a 20-mile radius. It must also be that any produce that is grown, reared or raised must spend at least 50 per cent of its time with the producer.
With changing times and tastes we also invite craftsmen and skilled producers to join us.
HFM became an independent not for profit organisation in 2002 and the same year became accredited by FARMA (Farmers Retail & Markets Association), giving their customers assurance that the markets were affiliated to an official and respected organisation.
Our producers are passionate about what they do. Because we are a farmers’ market, you can be sure the products you buy will be fresh, seasonal and from a source you can trust. Hampshire Farmers’ Market gives you the opportunity to meet to producers and buy the finest of Hampshire. Come meet the producers rain or shine.
