Many happy returns for Farnham Farmers’ Market

A lucky shopper who visited the Farnham Farmers’ Market at the end of November went home with a few more goodies than she bargained for. 

Sarah Lord from Farnham won a hamper filled with local produce donated by nearly a dozen stallholders. The hamper which included fish, cheese, olives, eggs and a mini rooted Christmas tree was given away in a prize draw to celebrate the market’s 20th birthday. 

After receiving her prize from the Mayor of Farnham, Councillor Alan Earwaker, Sarah Lord said: “The hamper is beautiful and unexpected, some of it has gone in the deep freeze, the fish is delicious, and my grandson loves the Christmas tree, it is delightful, thank you!” 

The December Farmers’ Market is on Sunday 12 December which is the same day as the Farnham Christmas Market. 

Councillor Pat Evans, Lead Member for Tourism and Events says: “The birthday hamper was a great success with generous contributions from the producers. If you missed out, I am delighted to say we will be giving away another one at this week’s market. To be in with a chance of winning, shoppers simply need to buy something from at least two stalls. Entry slips and full details about the competition can be picked up from Farnham Town Council’s information tent.”

As the last market before Christmas, the atmosphere will be decidedly festive with entertainment by St Andrew’s school, Potters Gate and Frensham Heights. There will also be music by the ukulele band Cool Hand Ukes and Brodie and Friends. The charity tea tent will be run by St Andrew’s Church. 

In January, the Farmers’ Market will return to Farnham on its usual fourth Sunday of the month (23 January) from 10am to 1.30pm in Central car park, Victoria Road. More information about the market can be found at on the farmers’ market page.
