Want to know where to find the very best and freshest local food and drink to compliment the gorgeous Dorset vista? The simple answer is at one of Dorset’s farmers’ markets!
Farmers’ markets take place all across Dorset throughout the year and are a great place to get to the heart of real Dorset produce and artisan producers.
A trip to one of our fabulous farmers’ markets is the best place to find high quality food that reflects the character and diversity of the county. Discover, browse and sample a wide variety of Dorset foodie delights from fruit and vegetables straight from the garden to freshly baked pies, bread, organic meats and plenty of other treats.
The freshness and taste of locally grown food is unbeatable!
Dorset farmers’ markets give you the chance to meet the farmers, producers and growers directly. Wander around and savour the aromas and flavours from the samples on offer and marvel at the wonderful array of colourful fresh, local produce on sale.
Listen to the chatter and banter between customers and traders….you’re sure to pick up some great tips on what others have tried and returned to buy again!
The quality and diversity of the produce at our markets is impressive. Stock up on local delights to produce an amazing holiday meal from scratch or grab some bits and pieces to rustle up a delicious snack or seaside picnic.
Why not take home a delicious Dorset gift for a foodie friend so that they too can discover the true taste of Dorset!
The producers at our farmers’ markets have to meet specific criteria so that you can be assured of authentic high quality produce. Local really does mean local – all the produce must be grown, reared, caught or processed by the stall holder and all within a 30 mile radius of the market.
Plus, by shopping at a Dorset farmers’ market, you’re helping to support Dorset’s local economy & reduce food miles, which makes those fresh English strawberries taste all the more delicious!!
