St Neot Local Produce Market
The Market is held in the Village Hall on the first Saturday of each month.
Our Market came about because of a desire expressed in a local survey, at the time of writing our ‘Parish Plan’, for fresh local food. The Market started in December 2003 and has continued without a break – operating once a month, on the first Saturday.
A full list of our stallholders and their products is below, and you can contact any one of them to place an order to be picked up at our next market, as well as shopping on the day. Our bread comes from the local long established ‘Blakes the Master Bakers’ of Liskeard. Meat, including baked ham and home-made sausages, from Brian and Nancy Smith who farm at Northcott, near Launceston.
Marion lives at Pensilva where she bakes her pasties, and the vegetables from Mark and Tessa’s field at Bodmin. All the cakes and baked goods are home-made by our locals, and Christine brings her silk and fresh flowers from Upon Cross, while Phil Corrigan brings his plants from Lostwitiel. Jan, Faye and Sue are from St Neot, and Pauline is from Looe, while Alice, who makes products from hedgerow foraging comes from Liskeard and has now joined with Sue Rice in helping Jenny to get the market set up each month . We have other goods for sale from time to time – such locally made wood craft, crochet work etc. and there is an open invitation to anyone who has something to offer to take a stall for the odd month here and there should they wish, or to come on a more permanent basis.
Many of the organisations in the village take turns to provide the hot drinks at the market, and make a little money for their cause. We can offer free parking, easy access for all, and a relaxed and happy atmosphere in which to peruse, buy, and enjoy a sit and a chat with a drink.
