What’s special about this farmers' market?
UPDATE 16th November
Blackheath farmers market remains open every Sunday during our 2nd lockdown. As providers of essential food and drink we're open every week with measures in place to keep you safe. No panic buying necessary there's plenty of food for everyone and lots of lovely farmers, producers and fishermen to support!
Shopping outdoors is safer, but it is very important that we operate responsibly and follow our COVID SECURE plan. As we move through the next 3 weeks of lockdown please ensure you continue to observe the Government guidance to help keep everyone safe;
Keep 2m from others in queues, whilst shopping, and walking around the market. It's easy to forget if you're reaching across to take something from a stall.
Wear a face covering if possible
To help make shopping easier for everyone:
Shop quickly, shop alone ( if you can ) and follow our teams' instructions especially in relation to entry and exits and any one way systems.
You may be asked to queue if the market is busy.
Thank you for your cooperation and your continued support throughout this difficult time.
A car park turns into a hive of community activity. Customers at Blackheath are on first name terms with their favourite farmers. Look out for raw milk, Norfolk caught brown shrimps, local honey, and seasonal specials including Kentish asparagus in spring and cherries in July.
'This place is beautiful with all the vegetables, the meat and fish stalls are a delight! If you love fresh bread, then it's here where you want to get (I have fallen in with the sourdough from there)! There's a cake stall which is absolutely sent from heaven! Will definitely go again and the stallholders were all lovely!'
We're open every Sunday rain or shine
