Half an Hour’s Drive Away or Less – Farmer’s Markets in and near Carnforth

Sedbergh Farmer’s Market

Sedbergh Market is held every Wednesday in the car park on Joss Lane. Trading starts at 8:30am and runs until mid-afternoon, weather permitting. The market is a great place to purchase fresh local produce, handmade crafts, and other unique items that you won’t find in a typical store. It’s also a great opportunity to support small businesses and connect with the local community.

We recommend parking in the Loftus Hill car park and walking down Main Street rather than competing for the coveted spaces remaining in the market car park.

Lancaster Charter Market

Lancaster Charter Market is situated outside the Museum twice a week – on Wednesdays and Saturdays – and it’s open from 9am to 4:30pm. With over 40 stalls, the market is a lively hub of activity, offering a wide range of items to suit every taste and preference.

Food lovers will enjoy the international cuisine and delicious seafood, including smoked fish. As for sweets, there are plenty of treats to indulge in, including artfully baked bread and other pastries.

Nether Kellet Farmer’s Market

Nether Kellet Farmers’ Market is easily the closest, taking place on the second Sunday of every month between 11 and 3. It can be found in the Village Hall on Shaw Lane, and being so close it’s hard not to justify simply dropping by to see what it might offer.

The first Saturday of each month is the day that the Caton Farmers’ Market takes place at the Victoria Institute in Caton. It runs from 10 to 1, with refreshments and crafts available to supplement the produce on offer.

Orton Farmer’s Market

Orton Farmers’ Market takes place on the second Saturday of each month, running from 9 to 2 with refreshments available in the Market Hall, at the Church, and at Kennedy’s Fine Chocolates.

Visitors can expect to find a wide range of stalls selling fresh and locally produced food items.

The Gifted Eden Artisan’s Market

The Gifted Eden Artisans’ Market also takes place in Penrith on the third Saturday of each month in St Andrew’s Churchyard. Gifted Eden traders have been hand-picked, focusing on home-made produce from the local area. You can expect to find a range of unique and high-quality items, including homemade jams, baked goods, artisanal crafts, and much more. The market offers a great opportunity to support local businesses and enjoy the vibrant community atmosphere of Penrith.
