COVID-19 update: The Local Produce Market is now back on every fourth Saturday. The layout and number of traders will be different as we have made some changes to operate in a safe manner during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not all of our regular traders will be back to trading on markets yet, but many of them will still be selling their produce by alternate methods. Please see our regular stall holders to explore the different ways of getting your local produce.
We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment to make sure that we are operating the market as safely as we can. If at all possible, we would encourage you to put in a phone or email order with our traders and then arrange to pick up your purchases from the stall. If the stalls have the facilities to do so, it's best if you can pay by card rather than cash. We would also encourage you to attend the market by yourself, rather than in a group if at all possible. Thank-you for your support; we have missed being your monthly market and are looking forward to bringing you the best local produce once again!
The town's Local Produce Market runs on the fourth Saturday of every month and sells high quality food, drink and crafts from a c.25 mile radius of Chesham. You can find us in Market Square near the clock tower and the upper end of the High Street between 10am and 2pm. Our market is a fantastic opportunity to try the local produce on your doorstep, at your convenience, plus meet and talk to the people who make it!
We have a great range of produce on sale, including lamb, eggs, cakes, home-made ready-meals, chocolate, honey, seasonal fruit and vegetables, baked goods, preserves and chilli sauces. And for crafts we have ceramics, cards, crochet and silver jewellery. We also have beautiful, ornamental plants and pot holders on sale. See our regular stall holders.
The local produce market is run by Chesham Town Council in partnership with Sustainable Chesham. The market was set up to support local producers and reduce the food miles consumed by Chesham's residents to help create a more sustainable community.
If you are a local producer and interested in attending our markets, please contact us, as we currently have a waiting list. You can call us on 01494 583798 or email email@example.com. We also have a free stall at each market for Chesham-based community groups and charities - please get in touch if you think your organisation would qualify.
