Fareham Farmers Markets create an environment where consumers and producers are brought together. All produce being sold must have been grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked or processed within the 'local'area. Wherever possible, the producer, or someone directly involved with the production of the goods, will sell the produce themselves. The definition of 'local'; is normally within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, but could be within 100 miles of Fareham if there is no suitable local producer of a given product.
Preference will always be given to the most local producer when a space becomes available at the market without compromising quality.
