Markets in Fareham

Traditional markets are held from 9am to 3pm:

The markets offer everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to household goods and clothing. It's convenient to park, close to local bus services, and there's easy access to town centre shops.

Farmers' market

Farmers' markets are held from 9am to 3pm on the first Saturday of every month in Fareham town centre.

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.

Speciality markets

These take place from time to time as shown on the Fareham Town Centre website's events page External Hyperlink and on the What's on guide across Fareham.
