The place to get things that have been grown and made in and around Wirksworth:
The Saturday Farmers’ Market started as a pilot at the Wirksworth Festival in 2008 with a handful of stalls, gradually growing to become a regular source of locally produced fine food, crafts and information about stuff happening in and around the town.
All stalls are run by small independent businesses, some only being found at the Wirksworth market!
Most months (in normal times) you might also find a cafe run for a local good cause and even listen to live music played by musicians from around the area.
Follow this link to find out about the current stall holders and how to get in touch with them.
We recently reinvigorated the Horticultural show , which now runs every September in its own right.
Most of our stall holders are based really close to us in the picturesque Derbyshire valleys of the nearby Amber, Ecclesbourne and Derwent rivers and we reckon the average distance they travel is no more than 15 miles!
COVID 19: The May market will include our crafts stalls and makers, but some may not have returned by then. If you want to contact regulars, use the stallholders page to find out how to make contact.
Many stalls are located at the Memorial Hall and Gardens. Covid social distancing measures mean stalls may also be located at the old Market Place (opposite the chip shop).
