St Ives Farmers Market is held every Thursday at The Guildhall, and it’s just the place to stock up on fresh, local produce during a holiday nearby. This is the place to come for local produce, seasonal food, homemade cakes and good food in general. Whether you pop along to browse the wares or stock up your cupboards for your stay in St Ives, this event is part of the community.
The market opens from 9.30am until 2.00pm, and depending on the season or which traders are there on the day it’s the place to sample meats, homemade meals and vegetables. The market has been revived in recent years and it’s not a community project – so you’ll find it has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere that makes shopping a pleasure. The hall means that the market’s a great venue for buskers to entertain market goers too, so there’s often live music to add to the experience.
