Next Market:
Saturday 13th January 2018
2pm to 4pm

Balsham Church Institute

Hello and welcome!

Thank you for visiting our website.

The core aim of the Balsham Community market is to connect the local community with food producers and farmers bringing you sustainable, tasty, local, seasonal and homemade produce. This is a great opportunity to see where your food comes from and meet the farmers and producers who produce these foods.

As the village hall is small, we only can fit in twelve food tables.  However, we bring to quite a wide range of different types of foods. You can expect to see wild game, beef, lamb, pork and beef sausages, cheese, allotment produce, mouth watering savoury foods such as sausage rolls, quiches, pork pies, vege and meat pies, steak and kidney puddings, pre-prepared meals along with melt in your mouth cheesecakes, chocolate and fudge, cupcakes and other delicious cakey things, Borakis Greek oils, olives, stuffed peppers, mountain honey, goats and sheep cheeses, artisan ice creams and sorbets as well as homemade preserves plus much, much more.


To find out who will be attending the next market, please take a look at Meet the Farmers and Producers.
