We are a group of friends

Country markets is a social cooperative

-but that is just a name.  It feels more like a club in which both the producers and the customers are friends.  Take a look at this very informative article from the magazine Home Farmer

All goods are offered for sale collectively - no one has preferential treatment.

    There are no minimum quantities to produce – just produce the quantity that suits you.

     A small commission is taken from the selling price of the goods, to cover market running expenses, and the rest is paid back to the producer at the end of the month.

    Producers are expected to help at the market on a regular basis.  This is a commitment.

Read an article in Home Farmer on joining Country Markets

If you would like to join us as a producer come along to the market (details on Contact page) and ask any of the producers to introduce you to the market manager. You will find us helpful and  encouraging.   

The usual procedure for someone who wishes to join us is to serve at the market for a couple of weeks first.  This allows you to see if you are really prepared to make the commitment.  At the same time you get the chance to observe exactly what goods people are bringing in so that you can look out for a niche that you can fill.
