Since starting in Autumn 2012, Baildon Farmers Market has quickly established itself as an important feature of the varied and vibrant Baildon community. It is underpinned by a volunteer advisory group, the Baildon Town Council, a team of volunteers and an employed market manager (Julie Bower). Click here if you would like to volunteer or get in touch for another reason.
The Farmers Market is held on the 4th Saturday of the months February to December (though December sometimes varies to fit in with Christmas festivities) in the lower Ian Clough car park. If you click here, you will see our dates for 2017; or click here and you will find a map to help to get you there.
At each market, shoppers from Baildon and beyond get to meet the producers and growers of the food they buy and taste free samples. There’s usually live music and always fun for the kids with a different bingo trail every month (prizes guaranteed!).
There are on average thirty traders whose stalls display sour-dough bread, cheese from the Dales, fresh and smoked fish, herbs, plants and oils, locally grown fruit & vegetables, cakes, jams and preserves, venison & game and much more besides. You’ll also see seasonal stalls like strawberries, rhubarb and asparagus. If you would like to be considered for a future market, please complete an application form here.
Baildon Farmers Market is just one part of the retail provision and shopping opportunities in the Baildon area – there is a lot more available as is illustrated on an attractive guide recently published by the Town Council. Click here and download your own copy.
