Held the First Saturday of every month (except for January)
The Stone Farmers' Market began in 2005 as part of the Stone Food and Drink Festival and has proved extremely popular, so much so that it is broadly considered Staffordshire's biggest and best Farmers' Market.
The Market is held in the Market Square and down the High Street, it is very well attended with around 30 stalls available. Produce for Farmers Markets has to be locally produced within a 30 mile radius. The Farmers and Traders stand in all weather, come rain or shine and are very proud of what they have on sale.
Goods for sale are bread and cakes, oatcakes, plants and flowers, wines, jams and preserves, fresh meat, sausages, bacon, black pudding, chicken, eggs and scotch eggs, fruit and vegetables, fish, pastries, jewellery, chocolate, a hog roast and many more items too numerous to mention.
Traders begin to set up their stalls from as early as 7.30am with the majority being open for trading from 9.00am - they close at around 4.30pm or when they have nothing left to sell (which happens quite a lot as their produce is very popular).
