Famous for being featured on Rick Stein’s food programme, the Winchester Market can claim to be one of the largest farmers’ markets in the country. Held in the heart of this historic cathedral city, they have over 80 producers attending this twice monthly market selling meat, game, goat meat, veal and buffalo meat, cheese, milk, cream, ice cream, honey, breads, cakes, fresh and smoked fish, a large variety of fruits and vegetables and apple juice.
Stroll around the huge range of stalls and sample some of the best produce that Hampshire has to offer. Stop and rest for a while and enjoy a coffee at the coffee stall and then explore the food to go options which include our renowned buffalo burgers, beef burgers, salt beef sandwiches, egg and bacon rolls, hot sausages in rolls, fish cakes, hot soup, our popular Hog Roast and mulled wine. Plus for the gardening enthusiast there are a range of plants, shrubs and trees.
Winchester Farmers’ Market takes place on the second and final Sunday of each month with the addition of some Saturdays a year in Winchester Cathedral Close. It is officially the largest Farmers’ Market in the UK (95 stalls) and was voted best in the country by the Guardian Food Magazine.
