FARMERS’ MARKET


Our weekly farmers markets are currently playing an important part in ensuring local residents have enough choice locally and do not need to travel out of the area which is crucial to reducing unnecessary travel for food shopping.

We will try to open a little earlier for older customers to shop. We will also try to space out queues to give people more room to shop and to allow for social distancing.

Please could you support farmers markets as vital food resources? We’ve had very little information or support from central Government. It would also be very useful if you could share the message that we’re open every week in your newsletter to local people and encourage them to like the Ladbroke Grove farmers market facebook page, follow us on social media @Londonfarmers for updates and/or join the market email list.
