Farmers' Market

Farmers Market

Morpeth Farmers’ Markets are held on the Market Place on the first Saturday of each month running from 9am – 3pm.

There is next farmers' market will be the Christmas Farmers Market on 7th December. And the first farmers' market of 2020 will be on 1st February, there will be no farmers' market in January.

Morpeth Market is managed by Northumberland County Council and Sanderson Arcade, working in partnership with Morpeth Town Council, Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade and other local organisations through the Morpeth market working group.

Although farmers’ markets are not restricted to farmers, traders must:

  • Be local – and in Morpeth, we count that as being from up to 50 miles away
  • Only sell their own produce, and
  • Must be involved in the actual production of what they are selling

Several traders are members of the Produced in Northumberland scheme - look out for the identifying badges.

Up to two stalls that do not fully fit these criteria but meet the general ethos of the farmers' market (e.g. a stall selling produce imported from a family farm in Portugal) are permitted at the market manager's discretion. Such stalls will be clearly identifiable.

The market is run in by Northumberland County Council and the Sanderson Arcade. For more information or to book a stall, contact Neil Brown, the Market Manager at or mobile 07909 688174.

Stall rental rates have been held from April 2015 at:

3m x 3m stall   £25 (+ £5 premium in July, August and September) 

6m x 3m stall   £50 (+ £10 premium in July, August and September)

2m table & share in stall: £15 (+ £2.50 premium in July, August and September)

Note - premium rates are applied in July, August and September.

The Farmers’ Market started in November 1999 and switched from Sundays in the Town Hall to outside on the Market Place on a Saturday in October 2008.
