Dorset Farmers’ Market @ Wimborne Square
Aug 18 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

There is a great range of fresh, local loveliness for sale at each Dorset Farmers’ Market. You can bring a shopping list and chat with our farmers, producers and growers directly to find out just what you are buying. Look further down the page & see how you can be sure it’s the good stuff.

If you are a courageous cook or a nervy novice you can get tips & pick up the ingredients for your Dorset delights. If you are just a fan of great food and drink you can choose what you need from your weekly shopping list & perhaps a treat or two for the weekend. You can buy meals made by someone else when you fancy a break from the cooking & snacks to make up a quick lunch or a seaside picnic. For foodie friends (and who isn’t) the Markets are a great place for a gift to thank the dog walker, the baby sitter or surprise someone with a proper taste of Dorset Birthday present.
