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.

This month on the market

It’s here! The Christmas Market is here!

It’s the favourite market of both young and old, as there’s something about nippy winter air and fistfuls of mince pies that can’t help but create a communal sense of merriment. And this year is no different…

Santa will be at the market from 11am to hear children’s special wishes and he’ll bring a sackful of treats to hand out. At the same time, gingerbread decorating will taking place in the basement of No. 97 (until 1pm). There will be moose and squirrels and all manner of shapes to decorate – why should gingerbread people get all the fun? – and eat!

A people’s choir will be “popping up” at noon outside friend of the market, Gordon Bennett’s. Bring your pipes and enthusiasm and we’ll provide the song sheets for your favourite carols and Christmas songs.

Should you need sustenance before/during/after all this fun, Tracy at Giggly Pig is doing her annual hog roast and a donation from the sale of each roll will go to the market’s December charity, Express CIC. In addition, all the proceeds from the mulled wine and mince pie stall (outside The Antelope) are also helping with their valuable work.

We have a super special gift market happening in the forecourt of St. Andrew’s and St. Marks from 9am to 1pm. A group of talented local artists and craftspeople will be by with their wares and we also welcome back Maple Village WI. Please do cross the road and take a look.

And, last but certainly not least, our stallholders have been keeping busy making and baking and growing to ensure you have a delicious holiday. Ralph Wettach is bringing his mince pies, biscuits and a special Christmas terrine with cranberries. His stall is also a destination if you’re doing any entertaining – his array of dips and homemade crackers make nibbles easy. Home of Savoury are bringing a range of saffins including Camembert & Cranberry and Smoked Salmon & Dilled Cucumber. Baker and Cook will have festive biscotti and stollen (and no doubt a few delicious surprises). Ruben’s Bakehouse is bringing panettone. T&V Vegetable Gardens will be stacking stalks of sprouts high. And Holly and The Ivy will have wreathes, as well as plenty of plants for gifting.

We hope you make it out and that you linger and enjoy being part of a very special day!

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.
