St Ives Farmers’ Market is a community venture, which brings fresh local produce to St Ives Cornwall. The market runs every Thursday throughout the year at The Guildhall in St Ives from 9.30am until 2pm.
The market has a great range of local food on offer including meats, vegetables and baked goods.
Traders vary with each market but some of the regulars who you may see offer products including fresh fish, smoked fish and cheeses, sea salt, fresh curries and chilli sauces, local seasonal vegetables, honey and bees wax products, homemade jams and chutney, sushi, cakes, olives, fudges and sweet treats and even local beers and larger. You can also find window boxes, planters, bird houses and feeders. So whoever is trading on the day you visit it seems you are sure to find a great selection of local goods.
Farmers’ Markets are good for the environment and good for the local economy.
- They reduce food miles – the distance travelled from farm to fork, thereby saving energy and cutting pollution.
- They keep money circulating in the local economy and help provide a livelihood for farmers and producers.
- They help build links between producers and consumers, so that shoppers can have confidence in the food they buy, and sellers can get direct feedback on the food they offer.
