Ingredients for all occasions

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!

Guaranteed local!

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!!
