How to be a stallholder

The aim of the market is to:

  • offer shoppers a lively, bustling atmosphere
  • provide a balanced cross-section of products, and
  • encourage shoppers to buy local

If you are a local producer and would like to attend the farmers’ market you will need to complete an application form and a produce enquiry form.
Please return these to Ginny Gordon at customer.services@farnham.gov.uk

Before you do this, it is a good idea to read the stallholders’ guidelines , rules and food safety advice. You may also find it useful to read the Surrey Farmers’ Market Guide.

Eating and Drinking

From breakfast to brunch

Set yourself up for the day in style with a wonderful English breakfast or one of a continental variety from a local hotel or restaurant. Alternatively cook your own mouth watering version using local produce picked up on a Sunday morning at the Farmers’ Market in the centre of town (fourth Sunday of each month), after trying a few tasters in the process! Farnham Maltings provides a comfortable cultural environment to enjoy a coffee and cake break or visit Downing Street with a number of independent coffee establishments such as Krema and Downing Street Deli, individual businesses like Poppy’s tea room in Badshot Lea or the Gorge Cafe on South Street provide a lower budget cafe menu.

‘Time on your hands’ lunch options.

If you can spend a few relaxing hours over lunch then Farnham offers some exceptional experiences. Brasserie Blanc or The Botanist is perfect for enjoying any sunshine, while the Lion and Lamb courtyard with its cafe and Cote Brasserie is an ideal spot to take in the atmosphere.

Weekend lunches in one of Farnham’s town or country pubs, such as The Lamb, The Wheatsheaf Bar and Grill, The Bat and Ball, The Bluebell , The Fox or The Shepherd and Flock to mention only a few, are a fabulous way to spend your quality time with friends or family (including dogs), with menus changing with the seasons and often with a modern twist on the traditional roast.

Afternoon tea

For a truly tranquil afternoon tea in lovely surroundings, try the historic Mercure Farnham Bush Hotel’s “Garden Room” or courtyard with its very own fountain or the Fresham Pond Hotel near Frensham Ponds.  Squires Garden Centre, in Badshot Lea or Bears Restaurant in the Pack House both offer great afternoon tea options.

Tasty evenings out

Farnham punches well above its weight in eating out venues. Every budget and taste is catered for, from popular pizzerias to tasty vegetarian possibilities. The old favourites Thai, Chinese, Indian and even fish and chips can be enjoyed in a restaurant setting. Or try something new in town, Sushi or a steak house.
