PRESS RELEASE: Eltham Farmers Market: Six year anniversary and opportunity to get involved!

16th September 2013
on behalf of City and Country Farmers’ Market

Eltham farmers’ market is six years old!  To mark this anniversary, the next market on
Sunday 20th October will feature some new stalls and special promotions.  The Royal Borough will have a presence with the Greener Greenwich stand to provide information on current initiatives such as the Big London Energy Switch, a scheme to help Londoners save money on their energy bills.  There will also be a Dr Bike stand where you can bring your bike along for a free MOT bike assessment and minor repairs on the spot.

The market operates between 10am to 2pm on the third Sunday of every month at Passey Place, where it adjoins the busy High Street.  The market sells a range of fresh local produce including fruit & veg, jams, honey & chutneys, chilli sauces, bread & cakes, organic meat, game and traditionally made sausages. 

The market organisers, City & Country Farmers’ Markets, would like to grow and diversify the market to provide a more varied offer.  This might include locally produced arts & crafts, hand-made fashion/clothing items, ‘green’ products or advice services (e.g. growing/planting schemes) and community stalls.  There are also opportunities for local businesses with a suitable offer to get involved (e.g. organic, ‘green’ or locally produced/made goods). 

Having already proved successful at some of their other markets, the organisers are also keen to expand the offering here to cater for the current trend for vintage clothes & homewares and ‘up-cycled’ goods.

If you would like to get involved or have an idea you would like to discuss,  please contact Chris or Sophie Elder of City and Country Farmers’ markets at 020 8302 9010 or email:
