Visit our farmers' market in Hackney to get delicious food while supporting small, sustainable farms almost all from within 60 miles of London. There's plenty of space to enjoy a chat with friends over a coffee and cake or a freshly made mushroom sandwich. We look forward to seeing you soon.

See which growers and producers will be coming to the market this week.

You can easily get to the UK's only all-organic farmers' market by bus from Dalston, Shoreditch, Stamford Hill, Tottenham, Clapton and Stoke Newington. Rectory Road station is close by.

Why shop at the market?

  • Every £1 you spend at the market generates £3.70 of benefits for you, the farmers and the planet.

  • Live in a climate-friendly way - all the farmers at the market are either organic or biodynamic, which is much better for the planet. And the stallholders making processed foods use organic ingredients

  • Cut wasteful packaging - Most fruit and veg at the market is sold unpackaged as are many other products, which also means you can choose to buy as much as you want.

  • Know who produces your food - Find out everything you want to know about the food and how it was grown or cooked from the people that grew, reared or produced it

  • Pay fair prices - While organic food is necessarily more expensive than food farmed conventionally because of the labour-intensive methods used to produce it, the farmers at the market charge a fair price for their produce and pay fair wages to the people who work for them. The market also accepts Healthy Start vouchers. Fair trade is as important at home as it is for imports.

  • Help create jobs in Hackney - try hand-made foods made by producers from around Hackney

  • Eat with the seasons - Discover produce you've never eaten before. There won’t be apples or tomatoes in May but, when they are in season, you can choose from many different varieties.
