Twickenham Farmers' Market

Description

Organised by London Farmers' Markets (LFM) and certified by FARMA (the Farmers’ Retail and Markets Association). All producers come from within 100 miles of the M25. They must raise, grow or bake everything they sell. No middlemen are allowed at markets run by LFM and there are very strict rules about attendance.

LFM seeks to increase farm incomes, and provide high quality local and seasonal foods to urban communities, encouraging sustainable methods of food production and supporting traditional animal breeds and heritage fruit and vegetable varieties. LFM encourages Londoners to take a greater interest in food production and rural issues and provides advice to farmers about what to grow, how to grow it, and how to market local produce. 

The markets put the customer in direct contact with the farmers, fishermen, growers and bakers. Every week, car parks, school playgrounds and town squares blossom into communities where you can meet your neighbours, swap recipes and fill your shopping baskets. If you want a farmers' market in your area and have a suitable location in mind, get in touch and LFM might be able to help.
