Surbiton Farmers Market

 

Hello and Welcome

Great to see you. Thanks for dropping by.

Whether you’re shopping for gourmet game, homemade preserves or delectable cakes and patisserie, our award-winning market is all about fantastic food, a great atmosphere and a true sense of community.

Every month some 26 stalls offer the very finest fare, brought to you directly by farmers and artisans who are truly passionate about what they do — and all against the village-y backdrop of leafy Maple Road with its chic eateries and shops.

Here on our website you can learn all about all these inspiring stalls, meet the team of trusty volunteers who run the market and check out market dates for the coming year. Oh, and because Surbiton Farmers’ Market is a community initiative, you can also see how we’re doing raising money for local good causes.

Do visit our website again soon! Over the coming months we’ll be announcing details of special events, running competitions to win market goodies and bringing you exclusive recipes from market stallholders.

This month on the market

We can’t believe Easter weekend is here already!

Luckily, the weather forecast is looking beautiful, meaning great conditions for our special Easter hunt.

The Easter Rabbit has let us know that she accidentally forgot a few of her favourite things on Maple Road and urgently needs help finding them, before she sets off on her route Saturday night. Any children who are free and able to assist, should pop by the organisers’ stall to collect a checklist of items to locate. Returning the completed checklist entitles the bearer to a wee token of thanks from the Bunny herself.

We’ve also got a fun morning of crafts in the lower level of No. 97. There will be the opportunity to decorate bunny and egg-shaped biscuits and to make a special Easter wreath. Activities start at 10am and will wrap up at noon (wreath making) and 12:30pm (biscuit decorating).

As expected, there will be loads of traditional Easter treats in the shape of hot cross buns, Simnel Cakes, and a variety of chocolate-y goods to name just a few, should you need to stock up. Or top up!

And it goes without saying that we’ve got the mainstays for your festive Sunday meal. Boarstall Meats will be bringing along lamb for roasting. T & V Vegetable Gardens have all the seasonal veg you could fancy (and some cracking potatoes!). If you fancy bread, you’re spoiled for choice at the Ruben’s Bakehouse stall. And, of course, there are a million other tempting items that will be just waiting to catch your eye (or your nose!) as you pass.

We hope to see you bright and early Saturday on Maple Road!

This month on the market

Wrights Originals, Ringden Farm and Silent Pool will not be at the market in November, but we welcome back the always popular Kitty’s Kombucha (who were recently awarded their first Great Taste Award!) and are excited to have Nonsuch Shrooms come along for the first time, bringing a fantastic supply of fresh mushrooms.

You’ll also notice that VJ Game and Sussex Smokers are joining forces and will have a double stall.

If you didn’t get to stop by Flipping Amazing in October, be sure to visit this month and give their new winter menu a whirl. This social enterprise, which originated at Surbiton Farmers’ Market, is going from strength to strength and, well, we are heading into “peak” crepe season…

The organisers’ stall is moving to the St. Andrew’s end of the road (beside Holly & the Ivy), so that new regulars Baker and Cook can test out a more central position. They told us that one of their customers was completely panicked in October when he walked by their stall on his way to their September location and couldn’t find them (and their pastries)!

The Thames River Boat Project will be November’s charity of the month and if you’re lucky, not only can you help get underserved people onto the river, but you might win a cruise to boot.

And last, but certainly not least, we’re launching our new logo. There will be balloons galore, a festive atmosphere and branded cloth bags and aprons for sale on the organisers’ stall, with all proceeds going to our Christmas charity, Express CIC.

We hope to see you bright and early Saturday on Maple Road!

Market life is something truly made of magic. Every third Saturday the stars align and you have this happy little slice of bliss with heavenly food and good friends. I love the way that charity is at its heart. I feel so lucky to be a part of it.
