Tuppenny Barn Local Food Market

Who is this for?

Good quality, local produce is at the heart of Tuppenny Barn’s Local Food Market which is held in their sustainably built Education Centre at their 2.4 acre small holding. On sale will be Tuppenny Barn's own organic fruit and vegetables as well as produce from other local suppliers, including jams, chutneys, organic bread, cakes, ice-cream, meat, fish, cheese, specialist sausages and delicious, healthy raw-food treats and drinks. In addition to the stalls there will be a café and children’s craft activities.

This market is on Saturday 7th May between 10am and 2pm.

Customers can be confident that by buying produce from the market they will know where it has come from, that local suppliers are being supported and that the number of food miles produce has travelled is minimal.

Free parking available on the site at Tuppenny Barn, Main Road, Southbourne, nearr Emsworth, PO10 8EZ.
