Local Produce Markets in Ceredigion

Get a real taste of the countryside at Ceredigion's local produce markets, held regularly in each of the county's market towns. Finding fresh produce and being able to buy direct from the producer is easy in Ceredigion: as well as the regular Farmers Markets there are also the popular Country Markets where members of the local WI sell cakes, jams and other goodies. Look out for farm shops too and small roadside stalls with honesty boxes selling vegetables, honey and herbs.

Aberystwyth Markets

Judged Britain's top Farmers Market in the 2014 BBC Food and Farming Awards - Aberystwyth Farmers' Market​ is one of the biggest in the area, with over twenty stalls, each concentrating on a different aspect of home grown produce. The market is held on the first and third Saturday of each month.

The popular Women's Institute (WI) Country Market is held every Thursday in the Aberystwyth Market Hall, a site which has seen trading since the 18th century. Get there early - locals ensure that their favourites are on regular order.

Cardigan, Teifi Valley and other markets

Other Country Market locations are Aberaeron, Aberporth, New Quay, and the towns of the Teifi Valley: Tregaron, Llandysul and Newcastle Emlyn.

Cardigan's indoor market is in the historic Guildhall building in the centre of town. The market hall, which is on two levels, was originally the town meat and dairy marketplace. Today it has an eclectic mix of 50 stalls - the longest established having been here for over 40 years as well as new, fledgling businesses - offering all kinds of produce, goods and services. Find fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and flowers, vintage clothing, knitting materials and fabrics, antiques and collectibles, furniture and appliances.

The Guildhall is home to function and meeting rooms and the bright Corn Exchange gallery which has regularly changing displays of art and craft.

St Dogmaels local produce market is held every Tuesday morning, in the abbey coach-house visitor centre.

At Lampeter you will find the People's Market selling local crafts, cakes, local meats, fruit and vegetables as well as the regular Farmers Market.

Christmas and Continental Markets

For Christmas, find all kinds of seasonal treats at the Aberystwyth Christmas Markets, and there are new tastes to discover at the European Market that visits Aberystwyth about three times a year - check out the events list for details.
