Find farmers markets and local food events for Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Manchester and Merseyside

Find farmers markets and local food events near to you…

Use our interactive local food map to find farmers markets and local food events near to you. You’ll find over 65 farmers markets and local food events to explore, scattered throughout all areas of the North West. So, whether you’re in Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, Manchester or Merseyside, why not get out and about and see what great tasting, made with love local produce you can find.

We think our farmers market list is pretty accurate and up to date but we don’t get the opportunity to visit them all too often and if there’s any information that needs updating or anything that we’ve missed, please get in touch and tell us about them!

If every adult in the UK spent just £5 per week in their local shops and businesses, instead of online, at the supermarket or with the huge multinationals, it would be worth £13.5 BILLION going directly back into our towns!
