Loughton Farmers Market

Loughton Farmers Market takes place in the heart of the Loughton community on Centric Parade, High Road, Loughton, Essex, IG10 1DW every second Sunday of the month. The next Loughton Farmers market will take place on Sunday, July 8th from 9 am to 3 pm. Future Loughton market days for the rest of the year are Aug 12, Sept 9, Oct 14, Nov 11 and Dec 9 2018.

If you live in Chigwell, Woodford or Loughton it is worth taking a look at some of the delicious local produce that is regularly on sale. This market was started in 2002 by the Loughton Residents Association (LRA). It is currently run by Essex Farmers markets and includes two free stalls  for local voluntary organisations and Loughton Residents Association's information stall and second-hand bookstall 

The popularity of Farmers’ Markets across the UK has taken off with a return to simple, face to face transactions between producers and their customers. Bigger is not always better and more and more of us are looking for healthy local food options that do not depend on the superstores with all their pre-packaged foods.

Chigwell, Loughton and Woodford local consumers have realised that there is an alternative with so much fantastic Essex produce on sale. If you are looking for real food produced near to your home with a real freshness of flavour Loughton Farmers Market has to be investigated. 

Farmers markets re-establish the direct relationship between the producer and the consumer. They are reviving some of the old craft traditions of small-scale production with a real commitment to quality and accountability. Essex Farmers Markets have been working on bringing these values back to local Essex village high streets like Loughton Woodford and Chigwell so the taste of Essex is back in the heart of communities.
