Our Market


Our objective is to keep Producers away from Customers as without Producers there will be no market !

 Consequently we have opened an 'ON-LINE FARMERS MARKET' combined with a 'DRIVE THRU' customer pick up'.

Our 'Market ' is open for browsing and shopping from Saturday morning  to Wednesday midday.

Orders can be thenm be picked up at SHIPBOURNE VILLAGE HALL ON  THURSDAY MORNINGS.

We have volunteers willing to deliver locally to those who cannot get out



If you cannot get on line or have problems with using the system please call Jenny on 07880577208 and she will help you

The Process:-

a)  Have a look at what our Producers have to offer. Choose whatever you wish and fill your basket. At the end of your shop you will be asked to CONFIRM your order (this is the same as reaching the till)

b)  A pro-forma invoice of the items and amounts in your basket will be emailed to you and how you should pay them . (If you purchased any items sold by weight you will find the weight and amount pinned to your purchase) 

d) We will send you your 'Pick up time slot' on Wednesday evening.

e) Write your Order No. and Name  on a piece of paper and stick to the offside window. At the Village Hall you will be asked to open the boot of your car.  It will then be filled with your order.

e) Drive away with your Order !

In 1285, Edward I granted the village of Shipbourne permission to hold a weekly market. In May 2003, with the help of a grant from Rural Revival, the Parochial Church Council re-inaugurated the market.

Our objective is to provide a focus for the community and a retail outlet for small local producers. The Market is run entirely by volunteers. Any surplus made by the market is donated to Agricultural charities such as the Farm Crisis Network and Bread-line Africa.

We aim to provide our customers with a one stop shop. We have an extensive range of excellent quality local products including both basics and unusual fare.
