Hailsham Farmers Produce & Craft Market is an interesting and vibrant event which takes place on the second Saturday of every month on the Cattle Market site in Market Street, very close to Hailsham town centre. The Farmers' Market boasts a variety of delicious fresh produce and a diverse craft section for those unusual gifts. Fruit and vegetable plants are raised and supplied by a local nursery for you to "grow your own".
Established almost 20 years ago in 1997, the site occupies the front of the Cattle Market site, hosting a variety of local Farmers, Producers and Crafters.
We also enjoy the company of guest charities, including the Hailsham Lions, who do a great deal of hard work to raise funds and help the community in Hailsham and the surrounding area. Cuckmere Buses use the Market to give volunteers the opportunity to try one of their buses with the aim of becoming a regular driver on the popular local buses. Many people use the Cuckmere Bus to take them directly from their home in the surrounding area into the centre of Hailsham and deliver them back again after they have had a chance to shop and meet their friends.
Market visitors are able to talk to the Farmers, Producers and Crafters and learn more about the goods on offer - where they come from and how they are made. We feel it is important to offer high-quality produce with a traceable history.
We offer FREE on-site parking so that you don't have to carry your purchases too far - and you can get refreshments in the Market Café with its traditional Fare.
Hailsham Farmers' Market never cancels - whatever the weather we are here on the second Saturday of every month.
